SavATree Builds and Donates Wheelchairs to Senior Citizens

BEDFORD HILLS, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2015) - SavATree, a leading provider of professional tree, shrub and lawn care services, recently held their annual sales conference. Due to unprecedented company growth, attendance was record breaking. Arborists from each of the company's twenty five branches gathered together for two days of training, idea-sharing and presentations from industry experts. This year's conference wrapped up with an exciting and rewarding team building event.

In keeping with the conference theme of We Are All Connected, or Mitakuye Oyasin (in the language of Native Americans), SavATree worked in conjunction with the Senior Citizen United Community Services out of Audubon, New Jersey to hold a "wheelchair build" with the finished wheelchairs going to thirty deserving seniors. 

The SavATree arborists were guided by a professional team-building firm that had organized a series of iPad-driven activities to acquire "points" that would allow them to obtain wheelchair parts and tools. Once they had their materials, each team assembled two wheelchairs. Wheelchairs were then subject to a quality control check by the team-building firm to ensure that they were safe and ready for use.

"It is great to have our sales team together under one roof for a few days," commented Luann O'Brien, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for SavATree. "With over one dozen educational sessions, and our fabulous keynote speaker, everyone left ready to tackle the season. And the opportunity to build and donate wheelchairs for the elderly was the perfect end point for a memorable event."
