Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) brand leaders and more than 700 North America marketing employees came together today for the sixth annual P&G North America Marketing Service Day. Employees from across the country volunteered to help make a difference in their communities, including P&G headquarters in Cincinnati.
P&G partnered with the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund team to restore the Cheviot Memorial Fields (one of the oldest baseball fields in Ohio), as well as the historic grandstand which dates back to the 1930s, the Cheviot Armory and the surrounding community playground and picnic areas.
“Our people are passionate about making a positive impact in their communities through volunteerism,” said Jodi L. Allen, Vice President of Marketing. “I’m proud to be part of the more than 700 North American employees who have joined together to help address the need for restorations in our own hometowns.”
The Cincinnati Reds worked closely with P&G to help restore historic parts of Cheviot, installing new pitching mounds, batter boxes, dugout benches, backstop fencing and bases.“P&G’s commitment to community volunteerism is inspiring, and we’re extremely proud to work alongside their employees to make a difference in this city,” said Phil Castellini, Cincinnati Reds Chief Operating Officer. The Cheviot Memorial Fields have been home to the Cheviot Patriots semi-pro baseball club since 1936. Due to the state of the field, the team had to relocate last season. “The Cheviot Patriots are celebrating their 100 th anniversary and we cannot think of a better way to celebrate than to bring them back to Cheviot,” said Sam Keller, Mayor of Cheviot. “Hundreds of families and local youth baseball leagues will also be positively impacted thanks to P&G volunteers and the Cincinnati Reds.” Outside of Cincinnati, P&G employees made a difference in eleven additional community sites in the following locations: Fayetteville, Ark.; Bethel, Conn.; Boston; Chicago; Hunt Valley, Md.; Miami; Minneapolis; New York; Woodland Hills, Calif.; Los Angeles; and Puerto Rico. Each community has also identified local partners to help amplify the efforts of employees, including: Habitat for Humanity, Boys &Girls Club, Dress for Success and more.
