The international independent assurance, tax and advisory firm designated Friday as its corporate social responsibility day, sending staff into the community to participate in service projects.
“This seemed to be exactly what we were looking for,” said Grant Thornton staff member Alison Lynley. “Something that’s helping the community, very local, something that we could make … a big difference with on the one day, and is something that hopefully we can all benefit from in the future.”
Starting at 9 a.m., volunteers spent the day painting the floor and posts of the open-air structure next to the cricket fields in South Sound.
The target opening date for the farmer’s market is sometime in October.
