On Friday, June 3rd, 2016 employees from Accenture spent the day with Montgomery County OIC and the Norristown Project a day of service in Norristown. Inside the OIC, a dozen employees hosted a workshop called Skills to Succeed. Skills to Succeed was a free workshop for Montgomery County residents who were looking to gain valuable skills needed to land their ideal job. The Skills to Succeed workshop was the first time the organizations partnered on the event and will be a recurring event. The entire event was made possible by United Way.

The Norristown Project partnered with an additional 27 volunteers to clean Scagg Cottman Park and plant flowers at Ebenezer Methodist Church and Montgomery County OIC. Below is a recap of the outdoor cleanup and beautification project. The volunteers worked hard through the rain and heat to make the community beautiful.
