Auburn, Maine 5.28.15 - For the 2nd year in a row, associates from the Lewiston Liberty Mutual office volunteered at Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's (AHCH) Hospice House during Serve with Liberty. The Team of 15 volunteers, along with AHCH's staff, restored the Reflection Trail and grounds after a long winter.
In 2007, a local Boy Scout troop built the Reflection Trail for patients and families to enjoy. "Reflection is the process of thinking about our experiences and attributing meaning to them. It occurs naturally and is the key to learning new things and increasing understanding," shared AHCH's Hospice Director, Karen Flynn. The trail begins at the entrance of AHCH's Hospice House and winds 300 yards through the woods. The trail provides an unique opportunity for individuals, patients and families a place to reflect, pray, talk and process all that is happening in a peaceful environment that can only be experienced in nature. "We are blessed to have a committed group of volunteers from Liberty Mutual that care enough about what we do to spend the time preparing the trail for another season for our patients and their families," said Julie Shackley, AHCH President/CEO.
Serve with Liberty is the Liberty Mutual Insurance global employee community service program. In 2014, more than 26,000 Liberty Mutual employees completed over 2,000 projects on behalf of 900 charities in 20 countries throughout the world. "Every year, our associates from our Lewiston office volunteer enthusiastically during Serve with Liberty and help improve our community, one service project at a time," said Leanna Cain, Liberty Mutual Lead Technician. "We're pleased to support Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice and contribute to the well-being of the families staying at AHCH's Hospice House."
