More than 100 employees from Diageo North America’s finance team donated time to transform the STAR Center for Star, Inc. Lighting the Way on April 27, concluding a week-long service project. STAR is a nonprofit organization that has provided services to individuals with developmental disabilities in mid-Fairfield County since 1952. Nine tons of gravel and eight tons of stone dust were brought in to build wheelchair accessible brick paver walkways and patios. The Diageo volunteer team also helped repair and refinish old picnic tables and build new ones, planted shrubbery and perennials, and revitalized STAR’s atrium with new landscaping, preparing two gardens for STAR clients to maintain. The Diageo North America finance team has led community service events for the past twelve years.
