On October 19th Days of Impact volunteers from Biltmore Farms spruced up the ABCCM Medical Clinic landscape. “It was great,” says Maia Price, Volunteer Coordinator for the Medical Clinic. “We had the pros on site!
Days of Impact are volunteer service events that occur twice each year and are coordinated by Hands On Asheville-Buncombe, the volunteer center of United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County. The program is a two-day event.
These opportunities are an outlet for employees of local businesses to volunteer to strengthen Asheville. By matching participants with service projects focused on education, income, and health, United Way makes our community healthier. Each year hundreds of volunteers from local businesses are coordinated and mobilized to serve across our county.
Biltmore Farms volunteers were the perfect match to meet the ABCCM Medical Clinic needs. About twenty volunteers armed with smiles and yard maintenance equipment arrived early for a fall clean up.
Biltmore Farms was founded by George Vanderbilt. He had a vision to support local businesses and organizations in order to promote a healthy overall community. Vanderbilt understood the impact this would make for all who live in and visit Asheville.
Today Biltmore Farms is still committed to the vision of its founder. Their participation in the Hands On Asheville-Buncombe initiative is just one way Biltmore Farms is stepping up to foster a healthy Asheville.
After mowing, clipping, and pruning at the Medical Clinic it was plain to see that Biltmore Farms is definitely impacting Asheville. The staff, patients and volunteers appreciate the welcoming appearance of the grounds and we send our sincere “Thank You” to Biltmore Farms and United Way.
