A group of Honda’s Alabama Auto Plant associates volunteered July 23 at the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind, helping with landscaping across two campuses for AIDB in Talladega.
“Friday was an exceptional opportunity for AAP to support the community and work with a great team at AIDB to help them achieve their goals,” said Scott Holder, Line 1 Control and one of the event organizers.
The extra hands were greatly appreciated by the grounds crew as they prepare the facilities for the return of students on August 8.
The volunteers spent the day moving and spreading mulch in different sections of each campus. AIDB equipped them with gloves, rakes, shovels, and wheel barrels and the group tackled the work with great enthusiasm.
“It was our pleasure,” expressed Holder. Not only did AIDB provide the tools and supplies for the volunteers, but they also provided cold drinks and lunch.
AAP has a long history of partnering with AIDB. In the past, AAP associates have volunteered to paint facilities and assist with other landscaping projects.
