P&G Volunteers for Rapides Kids

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. -- Proctor and Gamble employees pitched in to help a local non-profit this week spruce up several office buildings.

The company partnered with the United Way of Central Louisiana to volunteer at the Rapides Children's Advocacy Center.

More than a dozen volunteers rolled up their sleeves and helped paint and landscape several office spaces for the non-profit.

They say it's all a part of Proctor and Gamble's mission to give back. And, what better way then helping a non-profit that helps kids.

"Hopefully when people come here they see a beautiful place that they walk into that is a comforting place for families in need or people that need help," said Stacey Broumfield, a Proctor and Gamble employee. "It just gives them that soothing, helping environment versus a place that needs a little sprucing up or a little bit of help."

Volunteers from Proctor and Gamble also volunteered this week at the YMCA.
