Westmoreland gets a Coalfield cleanup
After lunch, our team ventured outdoors to clean up litter outside of West Edge Factory and along the streets of Westmoreland. The cleanup effort helped each of us connect with one another and our community.
Carla Ferguson, asset manager, said the cleanup was an opportunity for the Coalfield team to demonstrate that they’re invested in revitalizing the city as a whole, not just the West Edge Factory grounds.
“Coalfield Development is a leader of the community,” Ferguson said. “I think this is a great way to show this particular community where our West Edge facility sits that we do take an interest, and that we do care about the community and making it better for everybody.”
Trainee Jaron Ekers said the litter cleanup would be beneficial in more ways than one.
“Nobody wants to walk around and have an eyesore in their community,” Ekers said. “Plus, it’s great for the environment.”
Nick Guertin, associate director for Revitalize Appalachia, said he hopes that these positive acts will inspire others to do their part, too.
“I think it will hopefully motivate other people to do their own positive change in whatever way they think they can help or improve their own community,” Guertin said. “Hopefully [we’re] leading by example and motivating others to do the same.”
