More than 60 Best Buy employees recently gathered at the Apopka Family Learning Center (AFLC) ready to roll up their sleeves, get their hands dirty, and landscape their hearts out. Thanks to $1,500 worth of plants donated by Springhill Nursery, the volunteers had plenty of work to do. The group spent over four hours in the hot sun giving the grounds of AFLC a complete makeover.
The Girl Scouts of the Apopka Family Learning Center worked along side the volunteers and by doing so earned a gardening badge.
The Best Buy Geek Squad spent the day inside the center installing a DVD player, projector and surround- sound system – a surprise donation valued at more than $5,000!
The employees greatly helped the AFLC – and by doing so also served our entire community, all while having a blast. And that’s what’s so great about volunteering – you get to have fun while giving back.
