Maui employees take to the street on Bayer Community Service Day

Bayer employees across the United States took part in the annual Bayer Community Service Day.

In Hawaii, more than 100 employees rolled up their sleeves and volunteered in an Adopt-A-Highway service project. “Our employees have been looking forward to this day. In addition to a cleaner roadside, we are helping to keep trash from entering storm drains, streams, and the ocean,” said Bruce Schnicker, Maui Technology Center Lead.

The employees headed out early Friday morning along a two-mile stretch of Maui Veterans Highway, by 10:30 am the group of volunteers had collected more than 200 bags of trash.

“It’s both an honor and a pleasure to work for a company that not only supports but also encourages its’ employees to involve themselves in volunteer programs. It was an enjoyable experience to work alongside coworkers while giving back to the community we all live and work in,” said Tim Stevens, Maui Enablement Lead.

Adopt-A-Highway is a public service program where community groups, churches, businesses, or individuals volunteer to help maintain a section of roadside within Hawaii’s State Highway System.

“I’m so proud of our Maui team for being such an active participant in the 3rd Annual Bayer Community Service Day,” said Amy Martens, Hawaii Trait & Pipeline Delivery Lead. “It speaks to the compassion of our Bayer Hawaii employees, great job!”
