TRC Staffing Surprises Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta’s East DeKalb Club with New Bicycles

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Atlanta-based TRC Staffing Services, Inc., one of the nation’s leading full-service staffing solutions providers, surprised its employees this week with an unusual twist during its annual company meeting. As part of a team-building activity during the two-day event, the company’s 70 plus employees worked together to assemble ten bicycles. To their surprise, and the delight of the East DeKalb Boys & Girls Club, the newly assembled bicycles were donated to ten very excited children.

“The assembly and donation of the bikes to these children proves that businesses can still give back to the community, even on a limited budget. We hope that this exercise not only encourages our employees to work together, but also shows them that, when they work as a team, they really can make a difference,” said Afton Lucente, Marketing Manager, TRC Staffing.

“We’re so very appreciative of the time and effort given to the boys and girls at our Club by the team at TRC," said Patricia Jackson, Executive Director of East DeKalb Boys & Girls Club. “Our goal is to empower the youth in our area, especially those from disadvantaged families, to become positive and productive adults. These kids will know that their bikes are the result of teamwork - we could not ask for a better example.”

The East DeKalb Boys & Girls Club is part of Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta and has been serving the DeKalb area for 35 years. The organization provides year-round programs for over 300 members, ages 6-18, and offers a variety of programs focusing on three areas of youth development including health, education and employability.
