Our team at Green Street Solar Power loves volunteering in New York City, and we see so much value in getting involved with our local community. In recent months, we’ve participated in a fundraising event for “Rocking the Boat,” held toy and food drives, sent team members to the Food Bank for New York City in Harlem and spent time at the Brooklyn Children’s Hospital. This year we’ll be participating in the New York City triathlon in honor of our loved ones who have battled cancer, and we can’t wait to compete and show our support for those affected by this illness. Seeing the staff at Green Street passionately volunteer their time for worthy causes makes me so proud of the company that Jason Kuflik and I have built.
