“Our company has a tradition of providing a day of volunteerism for our team members and partnering with organizations in our local community,” Melanie Clark, CMO for Abstrakt Marketing Group, said. “When it comes to being socially responsible, talk is cheap. Action and dedication are what matter. This day is such a blessing because we are able to have an immediate impact on thousands of lives. This is only one of the ways we will be giving back this year, and have major plans to expand our giving efforts as we head into 2023.”

“What you all did for the environment and for bettering the surrounding communities cannot be depicted in words,” said Brian Waldrop, Missouri Department of Conservation’s St. Louis Regional Stream Team Assistant. “Still, I thank you for your ever-loving dedication to the St. Louis Region and the Missouri Stream Team Program. You all make this place a much better place to live and thrive.”
