Highlight Story
Volunteer Employees Improve Sports Center in Cartago, Costa Rica
Edwards started operations in Cartago, Costa Rica in September 2016. As is Edwards’ custom, we wanted to make an impact on the community where our employees live and work. We had the opportunity to improve the community’s Sports Center where many of our local employees practice sports to stay healthy. With $50,000 worth of donated supplies, volunteer employees painted parts of the Polideportivo in support of this important community initiative.
