[12/20/2022] Each fall the DayStarr team sets aside half of a day to give back to our community. For six years and counting, we’ve called this DayStarr Give Back Day–a day many of our employees look forward to each year. It gets our team out of the office and into the communities we serve. This day also allows employees that wouldn’t usually work together to get to know each other, build camaraderie, and strengthen bonds in our company. It has become a wonderful, team-building experience for our staff while we give back.
This past October, we gave back to quite a few organizations within our community. We started our 2022 Give Back Day with lunch in the park from our local Mancino’s. Our team has and continues to grow, allowing us to break into smaller teams and expand the number of sites we can give back to.
One team headed to DeVries where we made ice cream with a gas powered ice cream maker for their Fall Festival, pulled weeds, and lent a hand with outdoor work. Another team traveled to Durand to serve at the train depot. At the Depot we cleaned up the grounds, mulched flower beds, and washed windows. Finally, a team helped out at Emerson Elementary School replacing basketball rims and nets and cleaned up around the school!
Each year we look forward to this event and giving back to the wonderful communities we serve and look forward to Give Back Day 2023.
