Legrand® Participates in OCRRA Earth Day Event
SYRACUSE, NY, April 29, 2015—Legrand’s electrical wiring device team in Syracuse, NY, proudly participated in Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency's (OCRRA) 2015 annual Earth Day Litter Clean-Up event, Friday, April 24.
The 25-person Legrand team was one of several groups to volunteer to clean up a public area. Employees worked on the west side of Syracuse, near Boyd and Matthews Avenue, cleaning up parking lots, grass areas, and railroad tracks.
OCRRA's Earth Day Litter Cleanup event serves as a chance for friends, neighbors, and co-workers to help clean up the Onondaga County community. In 2014, roughly 5,500 people volunteered and collected trash from roadsides, streams, and public spaces. The effort brought in over 99,000 pounds of trash. In the two decades since OCRRA began the cleanup, more than 2,008,880 pounds of litter have been removed from the community's streets and green spaces.
"Giving back to the community is a core part of Legrand's business philosophy," said Pat Davin, Vice President and General Manager, Electrical Wiring Systems, Legrand. "Whether its small things like food and clothing drives for area schools and paper drives for Vera House; or larger efforts like the clean-up day and our sponsorship of The United Way— we proudly support the community and enjoy giving back where we are able."
