Boone County Economic Development Commision

Lebanon, Ind. – The Boone County Economic Development Corporation (Boone EDC), in partnership with the Boone County Chamber and the Zionsville Chamber, hosted the Boone County Day of Service on Friday, October 7. More than 125 volunteers from 11 local businesses teamed up to assist area non-profit organizations in accomplishing a variety of projects.

“The Boone County Day of Service is one example of how local businesses can get engaged and make a positive impact on the community,” said Sarah Ford, Manager of Talent Development at Boone EDC. “Many companies find giving back to the community also serves as a talent retention tool, and we are pleased to partner in those efforts.”

From painting to cleaning, landscaping and yard clean-up, corporate volunteers made a huge impact on the organizations and individuals they served to the tune of $15,000 in volunteer hour value.

First Farmers Bank & Trust sponsored lunch for volunteers and Chick-fil-A provided a discount on the lunches as well.
