What started as a community park cleanup day in September 2021 for “Hands-on Homerville” transformed into a 6-month park revitalization effort led by our employees in Homerville, Georgia. Together with other local partners, the Homerville team has dedicated countless hours revitalizing the George M. Dame Memorial Park and Macy-Brance Memorial playground.
During the “Hands-on Homerville” event, Mauser Packaging Solutions employee volunteers were partnered with the Cinch County Junior Beta Club and tasked with one day of clean-up work at the park. As the team worked, an idea immerged to take on the park as a broader community service project for the Homerville facility.
Initial revitalization of the park began with the addition of a chained link fence around the playground area and the addition of a new swing set, picnic table, and bouncy bee for the playground. Numerous other individuals and companies in the community joined Mauser Packaging Solutions in this project and donated time, equipment, and supplies to rebuild bridges, pressure wash and repaint the playground, re-mulch, update signs and install new BBQ grills. The addition of a new handwashing station is still pending for the park. There is still more work to do before the revitalization is complete but the progress that has been made so far is tremendous.
