St. Louis, MO, Aug. 12, 2021– Abstrakt Marketing Group hosted its fourth Annual Abstrakt Give Back Day on Aug. 6, 2021. Abstrakt worked with three incredible organizations for this year’s event: Laclede’s Landing, Missouri Stream Team, and Great Rivers Greenway. With the entire company volunteering simultaneously, the event tallied more than 1,200 total hours of giving back in just one morning.
Abstrakt Marketing Group’s entire campus resides on the historic streets of Laclede’s Landing, which is why this year’s Give Back Day was especially meaningful for the team. All 300-plus Abstrakt team members were assigned to volunteer in the Mississippi Riverfront and Laclede’s Landing cleanup.
Team members kicked off the day with a quick breakfast and a kickoff meeting held by Abstrakt CEO, Scott Scully, then headed out to their designated volunteer sites on the riverfront and Laclede’s Landing. Afterward, they celebrated the day with a team scavenger hunt around St. Louis and a reception at Morgan Street Brewery and the Levee House patio with refreshments and live music!
For the Missouri Stream Team and Great Rivers Greenway, over 175 team members headed down to the riverfront for a morning of cleaning up trash and debris. Over 520 bags were used, approximately 1,500 pounds of metal, tires, and much more were found during the cleanup. The spread of debris and trash was attributed to storms and spring flooding.
The other group of over 175 Abstrakt team members took to the streets to assist in the ongoing revitalization of Laclede’s Landing. Team members painted concrete barriers, picked up trash, swept sand between the historic cobblestones, painted light poles and planters, drew chalk designs on sidewalks for The Landing’s Bicentennial Event, and much more to beautify this growing neighborhood.
President of the Laclede’s Landing Neighborhood Association Jan Sandweiss said, “Abstrakt’s contribution through Give Back Day was invaluable. They beautified The Landing with their fantastic artwork and helped clean until the area was spotless. They enhanced the charm and appeal of our historic community. Their participation prepared the neighborhood for the first big event on the ‘new’ Landing commemorating the Bicentennial. It is wonderful to have such committed partners in our community.”
Abstrakt believes that every team member should have the opportunity to go out into their community and give back. That is why on top of Give Back Day, Abstrakt also offers a charitable matching program and two additional days of charitable leave to use throughout the calendar year.
