Sparks Grove Supports Trees Atlanta for Third-Annual Spring First Community Service Event
Dozens of employees of the experience design firm Sparks Grove will contribute a day of community service at Fernbank Elementary School. Team members will plant 44 trees – including a mix of native oak, eastern red bud and American holly trees – in partnership with the school and Trees Atlanta.
Sparks Grove believes that giving back to the community is important to cultivating relationships. The firm is purposeful about creatively spreading this message, and for Sparks Grove, this volunteer project is an investment in the community and a way to illustrate the creative ideas and seamless solutions the firm provides for the world’s leading brands.
This year, Sparks Grove – a division of global consultancy North Highland – will complete its third-annual volunteer service project at the neighborhood’s newest school, which opened in November 2015.
