Horrocks Ogden Office In the Community
The Horrocks Ogden office volunteered for Ogden City’s annual Make A Difference Day on May 12.
The office supplied about six flats of flowers to be planted at the Golden Hours Center. The group, which included George Benford, Sabra Benford, Mary Porter, Tyann Hunsaker, and Jason Allen, planted the flowers and helped to clean up the gardens. Also in the group were two Ogden City Council Members and staff from the Golden Hours Center. Together, they trimmed overgrown trees and bushes, raked the gardens, and planted flowers. For the event, the city recruits volunteers from their staff, as well as the Boy Scouts of America, local businesses, and residents to take a day to clean up parts of the city that need some refreshing. The volunteering includes donations of time and resources, such as flowers, paint, and other materials to make fixes around the City.
“It’s a great way to involve the local community in sprucing up parts of town that need some work,” said Sabra.
George actually started this event about three years ago when he worked for Odgen City. Since then, the event has multiplied and other cities have started similar projects. The Ogden staff was very proud to do their part in this event.
