XL Global Day of Giving at ABC – May 4, 2012

A team of 16 professionals from the insurance company XL Group, including the Chief Executive of their Insurance segment, Greg Hendrick, joined 9 ABC volunteers at the two ABC Houses lugging chain saws, shovels and hedge clippers on a day that began with thunderstorms. The clouds gave way to sun as the group worked at a blistering pace to roof the new chicken coop, clear the chicken coop area and then set the coop in place, clear tangles of vine and brush from the property and driveway, and also weed, prune and mulch planting beds at both properties. It was rewarding for everyone to see what could be accomplished in a solid day’s work when we’re pulling together for a common cause.
