With some beautiful weather and a lot of teamwork, the team helped with grounds maintenance, including the scraping, priming, and repainting of eight picnic tables.

Last week, Sol Systems West volunteered with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy (GGNPC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the stewardship and conservation of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The Sol West team, along with CEO Yuri Horwitz, spent the morning in Crissy Field in San Francisco working on grounds and historic site maintenance. The nonprofit relies on volunteers to keep these popular public spaces well maintained for local and worldwide visitors to use and enjoy.  Sol Systems accompanied the effort with a donation.

“After a quick instruction from our group coordinator, we picked out our tools and put on bright green vests,” said Jessica Cowan, office manager for the Sol West team. “It was hard work, but it was a cool experience and fun to tackle as a team.”

Volunteering with GGNPC – and other community organizations – is essential to Sol Systems’ corporate culture, and its Giving that Matters program. We are relentless in our commitment to organizations that improve the environment, social equity, and the communities in which we live and work.
