LCRA Employees Lend A Helping Hand In Buda
LCRA Employees Volunteer In Buda - Video
With shovels in hand employees with the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) spent the day in Buda giving back to our community.
"Today is our '4th Annual Steps Forward Day' where LCRA gets out in the community and just gives back in any way they can. This is one of the ways that both management and the LCRA culture can tell the community that we want to be actionable and responsible," said Jacob Schroeder, LCRA Project Analyst.
Playgrounds at Green Meadows, Stoneridge, Buda Sportsplex, and Bonita Vista now have some extra mulch. Mulch is used in a number of playgrounds because it helps reduce the impact if a child should fall.
“We wanted to work on the mulch. We worked at four different playgrounds in Buda.”
Every year the LCRA reaches out to cities like Buda to offer their volunteer services on various projects.
“We send a flyer out in the late fall to the surrounding area and all LCRA customers and the cities that they represent. We ask them if they have any projects that they would like us to do for them. Each city can submit up to two.We’ll go through an application process. We will work with the cities and see how we can serve them and what they need the most.”
Thanks to the volunteers, the City of Buda saved $3,000 in labor, but more importantly, the extra mulch will help keep your kids safe.
“We just really appreciate the opportunity to give back and we look forward to doing so in the future.”
