Designing a culture of service and community-building at Spika.

As part of Spika’s core value to ‘Build Our Community’, Spika commits one day each year to a Day of Service in which all employees lend their hands to nonprofits in the community that need help for large projects, such as painting rooms or sheds, building structures, cleaning and organizing, or using Spika’s design and manufacturing capabilities to provide tools, signs, or other equipment. For a community only 6,000-large, this infusion of more than 50 volunteers for a full workday is a significant and much appreciated effort.  

For the 2020 autumn season, Spika Design & Manufacturing dedicated two days to physically serving the community that has been our home for the past 20 years.

To be clear, it is not just on the Day of Service where Spika gives back to the community. We at Spika encourage volunteering by our team members every month. The Day of Service is merely an annual celebration of this spirit of continual giving, wherein we do our service in unison for a day (or, in this year of the pandemic, for two days).

For the 2020 Day of Service, Spika’s team members chose multiple projects for which they donated their time and effort on September 16 – 17, 2020. We have put together a photo-essay in a tweet-thread linked below. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did while serving our community.
