Roth Staffing Companies, L.P. responded to the United Way’s challenge to demonstrate what people working together for the community can accomplish. Last week, the Ultimate Staffing Services and Ledgent branch offices in Hartford, CT championed its own company philosophy to do good things for others by volunteering to Plant A Row for the Hungry at Westmoor Park.
The company Purpose of Roth Staffing is “To make life better for the people we serve.”® This Purpose doesn’t begin and end with the work day; Roth Staffing’s coworkers embody the spirit of doing good things for others in and out of the office, as demonstrated by the actions of its Hartford teams.
Plant A Row is a national public service campaign that encourages volunteers to organically grow vegetables and herbs, and donate them to local food agencies. The Hartford teams braved the region’s dismal weather to harvest, weed and water as part of their service.
“Westmoor Park is a beautiful and impressive environmental center that provides a wonderful community service to the greater Hartford area. As a team, we all welcome opportunities to fulfill our Company Purpose to make life better for the people we serve, but we were truly honored to participate in such a worthwhile event. We also managed to have a great time, and we look forward to partnering in the future with both the United Way and Westmoor Park!” – Patricia Bromme, Ultimate Staffing and Ledgent Regional Manager.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2011, the United Way’s Day of Caring was established to promote the spirit and value of volunteerism and increase the awareness of local human service agencies and schools.
“We were pleased to have Roth Staffing come to Westmoor Park for Day of Caring, sponsored by the United Way. The group got their hands dirty in the Plant A Row garden and harvested over 100 pounds of organically grown vegetables for a local soup kitchen in Hartford, CT. This has a huge impact on our community and the employees of Westmoor Park and we thank them for all their hard work. Plant A Row is maintained by volunteers, so we are truly grateful for everyone’s participation and dedication!” – Jane Gottier, Horticulturist and Director of Plant A Row at Westmoor Park.
