Impetus Team Members Pitch In for NYC Parks on Earth Day

A team of Impetus Consulting Group employees gathered at the Nostrand Playground in Brooklyn, NY on a rainy Earth Day this year as part of New York Cares Day (Spring).

The annual daylong event is organized by volunteer organization New York Cares in coordination with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation. It seeks to provide a positive impact on communities across all five boroughs via service to New York’s public parks and community gardens. Our dedicated group of volunteers removed debris, restored garden beds and painted fences along the perimeter of the playground.

“We are very proud of our employees’ commitment to serving their communities,” said Impetus Director of Operations Josh Mueller. “As a culture-driven organization we believe that we have not just some of the most talented employees but also a genuinely caring and well-rounded group of individuals.”
