GRB was the proud recipient of the Corporate Volunteer of the Year award at Mary Cariola Children's Center annual dinner this week. Dave Cushman and Kevin Flanagan received the award on GRB's behalf, and a number of other employees were on hand as well. 


Mary Cariola is one of the organizations GRB has chosen to support not only financially, but with our employees' volunteer time. We've enjoyed helping out with their annual Beach Party for the kids, with a school supply drive, by grilling hotdogs and hamburgers at school picnics, and raising a team for the annual Walking on Sunshine event.
