R2 TEAM CLEANS PARK AND BEACH
Jacksonville, FL – March 12, 2012
On Saturday, March 10th, members of the R2 Logistics headquarters volunteered with HandsOn Jacksonville in part with their Clean Green Earth program to assist in the cleaning of the Ocean Front Park at Jacksonville Beach. The program calls on volunteers to come together twice a month to assist in picking up trash left by visitors at various parks, beach, and coastal areas.
R2 Logistics brought 11 volunteers that included R2 associates and several family members. R2 associates included Jeff Schroeder, Jerry Gase, Art Gase, Jeanette Adkins, Shannon Heaton, and Joely Crane. About 30 people total volunteered for the morning event.
“My girlfriend, my son and I had a good time working on the cleanup,” said Shannon Heaton, R2 Carrier Services Representative. “It was blustery out that morning, but it was a nice feeling to get up early on a Saturday morning and go do something for somebody else whom we may never know. Now that R2 is firmly established here in Jacksonville, it’s important that we don’t just spend our time on ourselves, but in our community as well.”
“It was really great to see everyone come out today,” commented Jeff Schroeder, R2 Logistics Marketing Coordinator. “Although it wasn’t a typical day at the beach, I’m really glad to see everyone stayed committed to coming out and cleaning the park and beach area. It’s a great testament to the outstanding people we have working at R2.”
