Online Travel Agency Partners with Non-Profit Organization to Clean Up Harlem Park
Fareportal, the travel technology company powering CheapOair and OneTravel, sent a team of volunteers this weekend to help clean Morningside Park in Harlem, New York City in celebration of Earth Day.
The volunteer event was one of the bi-annual city clean up events hosted by New York Cares , each of which can draw up to 4,000 volunteers across all five boroughs. For this event, Team CheapOair dedicated their time to removing invasive species and also to clearing branches, leaves, and litter from the park to get it ready for the summer months.
“It was great to see so many of our employees come out on their day off to help clean up Morningside Park,” said Kathi Moore, Vice President of Branding for Fareportal. “We are very appreciative of our employees’ dedication to making a positive impact in the local community.”
“As a global company, we are involved with charity organizations all over the world, but it feels good to work with charities doing amazing work right here in our hometown,” said Corissa Leong, Senior Vice President of People and Culture at Fareportal. “Not only are we glad to clean up our city, but we are thrilled to support the New York Cares mission of meeting critical needs in the community.”
Fareportal has a longstanding commitment to helping communities in need through charitable donations and volunteer work. The company is always seeking out new opportunities to get involved with charity organizations both at home and abroad.
