Celebrate Earth Month With AAA

AAA Northeast is celebrating Earth Day throughout April with volunteer projects designed to bring members, employees and community groups together to help beautify the environment.

If you’re looking to make a difference in your neighborhood, join AAA branch teams as they spruce up parks, beaches and more. Cleanup events are happening monthlong across the Northeast.

“We try to find the most central areas for events,” said Maggie McMenemy, branch manager in Webster, Mass. “We want to join events that are happening and bring members with us.”

Typically, employees show up in force, but the branches are trying to draw more members this year by involving community groups, explained Thomas Ryan, district branch manager and chairman of the Branch Operations Member Engagement Committee.

“This is our biggest member engagement program of the year,” Ryan said.

Last year was a success with 350 sign ups, 40% being member volunteers.

“Besides cleaning up our community, the most rewarding part is creating relationships with members,” McMenemy said.

AAA has been getting the word out to members and McMenemy remained in contact with some volunteers from last year who already have signed up. The branches try to keep events family-friendly, she added, by holding them in parks and beaches.

“It’s a great opportunity to get involved in the community, do something with your family and learn more about community organizations,” Ryan added.
