The summer season is in full swing, and with the warm weather comes the volunteer spirit. Title Source team members assisted the efforts of nine Detroit companies and organizations to support the Cody Rouge Community Action Alliance in cleaning up Cody High School, otherwise known as Grow Cody. The non-profit organization serves the Cody Rouge community and is charged with promoting the goals and purposes of area residents, businesses and organizations.
Starting on Tuesday, July 25 through Friday, July 28, around 135 Title Source team members joined forces with other members of the Quicken Loans Family of Companies, DTE Energy, General Motors, PWC, Aerotek, The Skillman Foundation, Oak Point Church, Cody Rouge Action Alliance and United Way to help restore Cody before the upcoming school year. Paula Guzik, Project Manager on the Title Source Marketing team, helped organize the event.
“I wanted Title Source to get involved with Grow Cody because our team members are so passionate about giving back,” said Guzik. “I knew they’d make a huge impact getting things ready for the upcoming school year no matter what task they took on.”
Over the course of four days, Title Source volunteers worked hard to help paint, power wash, wax floors, clean lockers and much more. A combined total of over 740 hours of hard work were put towards beautifying the school and making sure conditions were up to par for students returning from their summer break.
“Our team members did a great job with all tasks, big and small. They worked through the heat and made sure the job got done before the end of the day,” said Guzik. “We were able to meet new people and build new relationships, all while doing good in our community.”
Title Source volunteers proved that with good spirits and positive attitudes, they could work together to leave a lasting impression on their neighborhood.
