Volunteer Spotlight: Beckman Coulter & ELFA
For this month's Volunteer Spotlight, ILACSD would like to recognize two great companies whose employees are giving back to their local communities: Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) and Beckman Coulter! In October, a team of ELFA employees cleaned up Coronado City Beach while the Beckman Coulter squad picked up litter from Buccaneer Park and Beach in Oceanside. These events are a great way for companies to build employee morale while making a big difference in our local environment. In just a few hours the two teams removed more than 100 pounds of debris!
