Supporting Our Communities During National Volunteer Week

In honor of National Volunteer Week, Redwire employees across the country volunteered their time for the benefit of others. National Volunteer Week was a celebration of citizens who spent time to better their communities and gave back to those in need. Nearly 100 Redwire employees participated across the country. 

In Jacksonville, Florida, the Redwire team participated in a cleanup of the St. Johns River, the longest river in the state, which curiously flows north instead of south! From tires to pacifiers and traffic rails to bottles, the team cleared the banks of the river of the trash they found and filled nearly 50 bags!

Up the coast in Marlborough, Massachusetts, the team served the Marlborough Community Cupboard, a local food pantry that provides groceries and toiletries for residents in need. The team had a goal of 100 pounds of supplies and worked together to collect and donate 1,113 pounds to the pantry!

Multiple teams in Colorado decided to work together to clean up a local trail at the Ken-Caryl Ranch Bradford Open Space, a beautiful landscape and historic site. Surrounded by stunning red rocks, the team collected and disposed of trash on a sunny Saturday morning and connected with employees from other business units. Some employees were so dedicated to volunteering that they drove more than an hour to get to the trail!
