WorkWave partners with N.J. organizations to create a positive impact across local communities
Holmdel, NJ, April 25, 2018 – WorkWave®, a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the field service, “last mile” delivery and logistics industries, today announced its participation in local initiatives with EarthShare New Jersey and Fulfill, Monmouth and Ocean to keep our beaches clean and fight hunger this spring season.
“Giving back to our local communities is an important part of our company culture and is something our employees take great pride in,” said Chris Sullens, CEO of WorkWave. “EarthShare New Jersey and Fulfill are both passionate about their mission to improve the lives of Monmouth and Ocean County residents. We share their passion and are honored to be able to work side by side with them.”
On Friday, April 27th, WorkWave will be participating in its first ever Green Day Challenge with EarthShare New Jersey. WorkWave’s team of beach cleaners will be traveling to Keansburg, N.J., where employees will be given an opportunity to directly impact one of New Jersey’s bathing and fishing beaches through a day of cleanup. The accomplishments of WorkWave’s beach cleaning team will be measured against other corporate teams across N.J. The awards will be presented at a leadership breakfast in June.
Paula Aldarelli, Executive Director of EarthShare New Jersey said, ”WorkWave is one of our newest Corporate Partners and we are thrilled that they’ve taken on the challenge! This is a great way to bring employees out of the office for team building, work in our environment, and an opportunity to learn more about what’s happening with our air, water, land and wildlife.”
In addition to the Green Day Challenge, WorkWave will also be sponsoring a garden bed at Fulfill’s headquarters in Neptune. Fulfill’s mission is to alleviate hunger and build food security in Monmouth and Ocean Counties and to ensure that all people at all times have access to enough nutritious food to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
As a sponsor, WorkWave is required to build and fill the garden bed, and will have the opportunity to take care of the crops throughout the harvest season. The crops grown in these beds are used to make meals for the less fortunate in both Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Last year, close to two tons of fruits and vegetables were distributed by Fulfill to local soup kitchens. WorkWave employees kicked off the program by building the bed on April 18th, and will be filling the bed on May 4th.
