InterGen is committed to contributing positively to the quality of life in the communities, societies and cultures where we operate. As a community partner, InterGen believes that our community responsibility begins where our employees live and work. At all InterGen facilities, our employees are encouraged to participate in activities designed to benefit the local community.
Below are a few examples of InterGen’s community involvement:
Employees Volunteer to Help Mexico School Thrive
Earlier this year, the Mexico City office worked with World Vision, a non-profit organization, to build a greenhouse at the Secondary Technical School of San Felipe del Progreso in México. Part of the school’s curriculum is teaching agricultural technical skills. The greenhouse and soil will allow students to plant tomatoes and sell them in the community once they are harvested.
In addition, nine InterGen employees worked with the students to share their life experiences and also financial advice, team goal setting, calculating operational costs, effective sales, added value on products, and developing a business plan. Since the day of volunteering, more than 150 tomato plants are being tended by students.
Building Homes for Deserving Families in Boston
With the help of InterGen employees from the Burlington office, Habitat for Humanity built a new home for a less fortunate family. Over two days, teams of employees hammered, drilled, sawed, and hauled wood to build a new home in Westford, MA, which is now occupied by a single mother and her two children.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that works to strengthen families and communities through affordable homeownership opportunities.
