Watch this video to see Mosaic volunteers in action on Mosaic Cares Day on April 19.
Last October, Mosaic employees in Florida participated in a Mosaic Cares Day to support Hurricane Ian relief efforts in some of our hardest hit operating areas. Due to the positive response we received from our employees and others in the community, Mosaic Cares Day volunteer events will be ongoing throughout 2023 – providing more opportunities for our employees and their families to get involved, connect with our mission and support our neighbors.
This year, there will be three company-sponsored and leader-led Mosaic Cares Days. Held in Florida and other areas where we have our largest operational footprint in North America, the days will be coordinated to align with Mosaic’s main focus areas for community investments: water, food and local community. An additional Mosaic Cares Day may be scheduled if needed for disaster relief or other community support.
Celebrating Earth Day
The first Mosaic Cares Days planned for this year was held on April 19 and focused on water in recognition of Earth Day. In Florida, we partnered withAudubon Florida, Charlotte Harbor Education Center, Hardee Lakes Park, Keep Polk County Beautiful and Tampa Bay Watch to coordinate volunteer opportunities for employees and family members that ranged from shoreline and community clean-ups to gardening, fishing line recycling and more. Mosaic volunteers completed six projects in four counties, totaling approximately 130 hours.
“Giving back to our communities is important, and we’re having fun doing it together,” said Lisa Poissant, Vice President, Human Resources – North America, who volunteered with Polk County Beautiful to clean up Loyce E. Harpe Park in Mulberry. “These communities are where our employees live, work and go to school, and we want to be good stewards of our resources.”
