AFL Associates Volunteer at New Day Clubhouse


Last week, a team of AFL associates gathered at New Day Clubhouse in Spartanburg for an ACT (AFL Community Team) volunteer community service event. Part of AFL’s Community Outreach Program, volunteers enhanced the landscape by trimming bushes and trees, planting flowers, spreading mulch and painting the perimeter fence. At the end of day-long project, AFL volunteers presented New Day Clubhouse with a grant for $2,000.

Eighty AFL associates donated their time – a record turnout since this program began in 2005. More importantly, members of New Day Clubhouse joined the volunteer effort, learning new skills and building new friendships.

“New Day Clubhouse does a terrific job of helping its members lead a productive and normal life,” said Kurt Dallas, vice president and general manager of AFL’s global cable systems group. “We were able to interact with members and work side-by-side. Not only did we contribute our time to complete many projects, but we also contributed to the lives of the members of New Day, providing encouragement and fun along the way.”
New Day Clubhouse provides both a safe and educational environment for those in the community living with mental illness. By offering vocational training programs to members, New Day Clubhouse helps clients lead independent lives within the community. These vocational training programs are designed to assist members with learning basic office, food service, and facilities upkeep skills that are essential to a career and life in general.

AFL would not have been able to help New Day Clubhouse without the generosity of the following sponsors: Bi-Lo, Republic Services, Ingles, Sodexo, IDG, Snyder’s Tree Service, Brickman Landscaping, Country Boys, Sherwin-Williams and Sellers & Son’s Services.
