Ericsson Employees Dial Up Philanthropy
As more and more people help us communicate our message, it’s only fitting that local workers of an international communications company stepped up to help Megan’s House maintain its picturesque charm.
Recently, dozens of employees of Ericsson, Inc. volunteered hours of their time for a fall cleanup. Along with Foundation Vice-President Jeff Saba, who owns a local landscaping company, the men and women who work at Ericsson raked leaves, cleared brush and swept debris from around the Megan House property.
When their work was done the grounds were camera ready, which is a good thing, since the generous gesture also earned a mention in the Lowell Sun newspaper.
Ericsson is a global leader in Information and Communications Technology with customers in over 180 countries. In fact, 40% of the world’s mobile traffic is carried over Ericsson’s network.
The cleanup was organized by Lisa Newell, who works out of the company’s Acton, MA office and had no trouble rounding up volunteers once word of Megan’s House spread.
“The team at Ericsson was so happy to learn about this organization and what it does for young women,” Newell said. “They were impressed when they met the girls at the house and left there feeling wonderful about the program and volunteering. They are looking forward to helping out in the future.”
On top of the local employee volunteer efforts, Ericsson, Inc. has pledged $1,000 to the Megan House Foundation to help in our mission to fight addiction.
The Megan House Foundation extends its heartfelt appreciation to Lisa Newell and everyone at Ericsson, Inc. for their generosity and for taking the time to meet the residents of the home. Their support affirms yet again that, together we make a difference!
