ADP® Takes National Make a Difference Day Seriously!

A guest post by Allan Collins, Director of Volunteerism with Inland Empire United Way

National Make a Difference Day has been celebrated for more than twenty years, bringing together millions of people across the country who believe in community service to help improve the lives of others.

This year, ADP’s San Dimas office once again teamed up with Inland Empire United Way (IEUW) to help transform a local school. More than four hundred volunteers spent Saturday, October 26th at the Anna Borba Elementary School in Chino Valley — painting murals, planting trees, and pitching in however they could to turn the school grounds into an environment of which the community could be proud. This follows ADP’s first project with IEUW in 2011, when a similar effort took place at Mission Elementary School in Ontario.

Patrick Files and Renee Concialdi of ADP, both “veterans” to school projects, stated that: “It was an exceptionally rewarding experience to be out at Anna Borba, on a weekend, among so many co-workers who were all willing to spend their Saturday helping the community.”

Thank you ADP; I was truly humbled to see so many of you “painting a brighter future” for the students at Anna Borba Elementary School.  Our continued work together shows what the magic of paint can do for students.  It is because of you that we have helped inspire over 3000 students since 2011 to stay in school and send the message of hope and inspiration to them.
