Glick volunteers with the Indianapolis Cultural Trail
Team members from the Gene B. Glick Company recently participated in a volunteer day focused on maintaining and enhancing the beauty of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, an urban, linear park that connects many of the city’s Cultural Districts and historic places to visit. Glick’s connection to the cultural trail stems in part from the company’s founders, Eugene and Marilyn Glick, who contributed $15 million as a philanthropic gift to help create it.
“Our Glick Cares volunteer events inspire our team members to live our company’s values in the community,” said Stacey Sunderman, Glick’s Chief Financial and Operating Officer. “Glick is committed to making a positive impact in the communities we serve and to building value for people and places. Our volunteer days are an important way we honor that commitment.”
A group of 40 Glick team members spent the day mulching, planting sunflowers and picking up litter along Virginia Avenue as directed by an Indianapolis Cultural Trail leader. The effort is part of regular days of service that Glick schedules as part of its corporate social responsibility goals.
“I am grateful to work for a company that encourages and empowers its employees to give back to the community,” Alex Freeman. “Glick gives employees time to volunteer and plans events like our work with the cultural trail, and I am continually inspired by our team’s collective efforts.”
