Over the past few years, VantagePoint has been involved in a variety of community service projects in Greenville. From painting walls and installing baseboard at a Habitat for Humanity home to dressing up in costume and passing out Halloween candy at the Meyer Center for Special Children, our associates are always eager to help others.
It is with great pleasure that we can announce that 2011 marks a new year of service for the VantagePoint team. We have partnered with the SCDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program to be the official sponsor of a two-mile stretch of East North Street (from Pleasantburg Drive to Imperial Drive). Adopt-A-Highway began in South Carolina in 1988 and has since been one of the most successful programs to keep our highways litter free.
During the year, VantagePoint will participate in four SCDOT-scheduled clean dates. VantagePoint associates are strongly encouraged, but not required, to participate in at least two out of the four dates. So if you are driving along East North Street in the coming months, keep your eyes peeled for our green Adopt-A-Highway signs and our team. Who knows, you might just catch Craig O’Neal out there in a bright orange vest!
While picking up trash and wearing less-than-attractive orange vests probably isn’t at the very top of anyone’s fun list, it has definitely been a great team building activity for our associates here at VantagePoint. In fact, the first clean up of the year was held a little over a week ago, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The team had a great time getting outside of the office and doing something together for the greater good of the community.
