October is Mallinckrodt’s Global Month of Service, a company-wide initiative encouraging employees to give back to our local communities through volunteer and fundraising events.
Employees from the Global Development Operations department in Bedminster, NJ recently donned their work gloves and boots and spent a day volunteering at the Scherman-Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary, part of the New Jersey Audubon Society.
Founded in 1897, New Jersey Audubon fosters environmental awareness and a conservation ethic among New Jersey’s citizens; protects New Jersey’s birds, mammals, other animals, and plants, especially endangered and threatened species; and promotes preservation of New Jersey’s valuable natural habitats.
The Mallinckrodt team spend most of the day helping restore hiking trails within the Scherman-Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary, consisting of 276 acres of woodland, field, and floodplain habitat supporting over 200 species of wildlife over the course of a year.
“What better way to blend nature and health than with a team of caring volunteers from Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals,” said Carol Diveny, Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations for the New Jersey Audubon Society. “Inspired by the words of our President and CEO, Eric Stiles, a collective effort unfolded at the Scherman-Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary. This determined team not only helped to breathe new life back into our forested sanctuary by removing invasive bamboo and Japanese barberry, and spreading woodchips to protect our trails from erosion, but they also learned about their role as stewards of nature. THANK YOU Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals for all your hard work!”
