On Friday, June 8, more than 120 professionals from Deloitte volunteered with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and National Park Service at Muir Woods, Muir Beach, and Redwood Creek Nursery.
Volunteers maintained the trails in Muir Woods, tended to plants in Redwood Creek nursery, and helped restore habitat in Muir Beach by reestablishing native plants. Their efforts in Muir Beach will help protect Coho salmon, Steelhead trout, and the endangered California red-legged frog.
The volunteer event was part of Deloitte’s 13th annual IMPACT Day, when everyone at the nation’s largest professional services organization is encouraged to set aside their office duties for the day to volunteer for a nonprofit organization. Tens of thousands of Deloitte
volunteers across the U.S. participated in a wide variety of both skills-based and traditional “hands-on” projects — painting, landscaping, renovating, and more.
In the Bay Area, there were approximately 1,500 Deloitte volunteers at more than 45 sites, including the Mill Valley sites.
On IMPACT Day, Teresa Briggs, Bay Area managing partner for Deloitte said, “IMPACT Day is a symbol of all the great work our people do throughout the year in
support of the communities where we work and live.”
Briggs continued, “This IMPACT Day is particularly special because it falls in our centennial year –Deloitte was established in San Francisco in 1912, and as we
go out into our neighborhoods to volunteer, we are reminded of how proud we are to have been active and passionate participants in the vibrant Bay Area community for 100 years. I deeply appreciate the efforts of all of the Deloitte professionals who contributed their time and skills at more than 45 nonprofit sites across the Bay Area on Friday.”
Among the 45 local projects on IMPACT Day, Deloitte also collaborated with the Taproot Foundation to host a pro bono “Scope-a-thon” in San Francisco. At this event,
approximately 85 senior executives from a variety of local nonprofits attended workshops — led by Deloitte volunteers —focused on how to plan and “scope out” pro bono projects to maximize their chances for success.
