Boxley employees from multiple locations across Virginia volunteered their United Way Day of Caring time to Bedford’s Domestic Violence Shelter. As a division of Bedford County Department of Social Services, they provide shelter, information, referrals, and court accompaniment free of charge to those affected by domestic violence.
Our volunteers took pride in improving the exterior condition of the shelter by weeding, mulching, planting, and laying stone. Improvements that have brought smiles to those who reach out to the shelter. At a later date, Boxley accepted the ‘Bedford Domestic Violence Services Award for Excellence in Service to Victims’, presented by the shelter.
Boxley is a significant supporter of United Way. Since 2000, Boxley employees, with matching funds from the company, have donated nearly $1.7 million to United Way. This year, Team 360, our employee-led corporate responsibility team, chose to supplement the company’s financial support with volunteer support, encouraging employees to participate with United Way’s Day of Caring in each community Boxley serves.
The Bedford volunteer project is one of many Day of Caring projects made possible through the Boxley 360 Corporate Responsibility program.
