Blue Grass Day of Service 2023: Transforming Landscapes for St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities

At Blue Grass, our commitment to corporate social responsibility goes beyond manufacturing quality metal nitrates. On September 11, 2023, we had the privilege of participating in a service day dedicated to enhancing the landscape of St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities in New Albany, Indiana.

The Heart of New Albany: St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities

St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities has been a pillar of support for the New Albany community for many years. Their dedication to assisting families and individuals in need has left an indelible mark on our city. With services ranging from food assistance to housing support, their mission aligns perfectly with our values of compassion and community betterment.

The Blue Grass Team's Service Day

A Day of Transformation

Blue Grass employees from various departments came together to plan and organize the event. On September 11, under a bright Indiana sky, the Blue Grass team arrived at St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities with gloves in hand, and a shared enthusiasm for making a difference. Our dedicated employees spent the afternoon working diligently to transform the outdoor spaces of the facility.

What We Did

Lawn Care: We mowed and trimmed the lawns to create a welcoming and well-maintained environment.

Weeding: The team also worked on cleaning up mulch beds and existing sidewalk foliage for visitors to enjoy.

Hedges: Bushes on the side of the property received a much-needed trimming and the clippings were collected in a recycling container.

Community Engagement

Throughout the afternoon, we had the opportunity to engage with a few of the staff and volunteers at St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities. It was heartwarming to hear a few of their stories and learn more about the vital services they provide to our community.

The Impact

Our service day left a lasting impact on both our Blue Grass team and St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities. It was a reminder that small acts of kindness and generosity can have significant effects on the community we call home. Together, we created a more welcoming and uplifting space for those who rely on St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities.
