The Republic Services Charitable Foundation has announced that it is awarding 24 National Neighborhood Promise grants for 2020, which will support neighborhood revitalization projects across the country. Since 2018, the Foundation has partnered with the affiliates of three nationally recognized and locally operating nonprofit organizations, Habitat for Humanity, NeighborWorks, and Rebuilding Together to meet our mission of revitalizing places and spaces where our employees and customers live and work.
A sampling of this year’s projects include renovations to local schools and community centers that provide healthy and safe spaces for youth, home repairs for veterans and seniors, and beautification efforts including landscaping and garden beds in public spaces.
In 2019, the support of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Housing Partnership alone impacted 15,000 residents and engaged over 150 employee volunteers from our Charlotte market. “This was such an amazing experience for our team…we had the opportunity engage with the entire neighborhood, elected officials, and residents…all while making a lasting impact for the families of Druid Hills. I am incredibly proud of our team and the passion they have for making a difference in our community.” Shane W., Area President.
