The Ponte de Laguna Consortium gathers around 150 volunteers and organizes structural renovations at a school in the Pescaria Brava community
On August 24, the Ponte de Laguna Consortium will take part in the sixth edition of the "Doing Good Day," a corporate volunteer event that gathers all of the companies of the Camargo Corrêa Group. Around 150 volunteers are expected for the event in the city of Laguna. Activities will benefit 120 children from the Pescaria Brava community.
Employee volunteers from the Camargo Corrêa Construction Company, plus their family members and friends, have been working in a group effort for repairs and improvements at the "Ponta das Laranjeiras" primary school since July. The activities include general painting, repairs to the front of the school, repairs to the front gate, improvements of the sport court and playground, creation of a garden, placement of windows, donation of selective garbage collection bins and organization of the computer room. On Sunday, August 24th, there will be recreational activities and snacks at the school for the kids to celebrate the completion of the renovation work.
The Doing Good Day is an annual charitable event organized by the Camargo Corrêa Institute (ICC) since 2009. In 2014, a total of 13 companies present in 15 countries are taking part in the Doing Good Day. Around 22,000 volunteers are expected to be involved.
