On June 7th, 2008, Omnicom brought together a team of Omnicom employees and executives in town for an Omnicom conference to rejuvenate two locations in the historic community of South Boston. With public housing dominating the landscape and dilapidated playgrounds everywhere, OmnicomCares wanted to make sure families in “Southie” have a safe, fun, and nurturing environment to raise their families. Even before the event began, the team received many letters of gratitude from the leaders of the Old Colony Teen Center – one of which read: “Omnicom and City Year have both restored my faith in humanity. It is because of people like you, that make my vision seem not so far away.”
Not only did the Omnicom Family give of its time, but also donated $50,000 to the Center.
In short, the video from the event speaks for itself. It was an inspiring event, and showcased both the dedication and creativity found within the Omnicom Family.
