BrightView Lends Green Thumb to Support Military Families

BrightView Lends Green Thumb to Support Military Families Program helps teach children on mid-Atlantic military bases about everything green

BrightView team members help spread the love of plants and flowers to the next generation.

BrightView is a proud supporter of veterans and military families. So, when our client, Liberty Military Housing, reached out and asked us to participate in a program that helps teach children on various mid-Atlantic military bases about plants and flowers, the answer was easy.

The “Paint a Pot, Pot a Plant” activities that were recently supported by dozens of BrightView team members from our Virginia Beach and Williamsburg Branches saw more than 500 children and their families from nine military bases participate in the learning, while also having a little fun painting the pots they were planted in.

“It is our honor to serve those who are serving us,” said Joe Johnson, Virginia Beach Branch Manager. “It is a great opportunity to give back to the people who are protecting and making immense sacrifices for us.”

This is the second year BrightView has participated in these activities. Future activities are planned to expand the fun and learning.


BrightView Offers Team Members Life-Saving CPR Training

BrightView Offers Team Members Life-Saving CPR Training

More than 1,000 BrightView team members have been trained in First Aid and CPR since October 2022.

Did you know? Each day, 1,000 Americans experience sudden cardiac arrest. According to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, only 10 percent of these people survive.

At BrightView Landscapes, our greatest asset is our employees. In addition to equipping team members with the skills and resources needed to safely perform your job safely, we are committed to providing the training to assist fellow employees and customers and community members, should medical assistance be required. In support of this endeavor, the Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) team regularly coordinates First Aid and CPR training events across the country.

Since October 2022, nearly 1,000 BrightView employees have been trained in First Aid and CPR and we currently have more than 35 American Red Cross-certified First Aid and CPR instructors on our EHS and Branch Management teams.

“Our goal is to have all Branch leadership members and crew leaders trained in First Aid/CPR,” said Holly Woonton, BrightView’s Vice President, Environmental Health & Safety. “This is important life-saving training, and within BrightView, there are dozens of instances where team members have used their training to come to the rescue of their coworkers and community members suffering a cardiac or life-threatening emergency.”

At the conclusion of the half-day course, team members will know how to:

  • Perform CPR on someone who is in cardiac arrest
  • Properly use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • Administer First Aid to someone who is injured
  • Assist someone who is choking
  • Render assistance with Narcan and Epinephrine

BrightView Honors Veterans with Retired Flags

BrightView Honors Veterans with Retired Flags The donation helps pay a final tribute to our nation's heroes
American flag rose military dog tags
BrightView is proud to donate retired American flags to honor veterans as they are laid to rest.

Walking through the Baltimore branch warehouse late last year, the Branch Administrator, Christine Thayer, came upon 75 retired American flags BrightView inherited from a client.

She alerted her teammate and fellow Branch Administrator, Maggie Shannon, who did some digging and found that BrightView stores the flags for various clients.

Learning the clients no longer needed them, Shannon wanted to ensure the flags were properly disposed of. After a quick online search, she connected with a local funeral home that places flags with veterans before they are cremated so the ashes of the American flag are combined with the ashes of the veteran as a sign of respect for their service.

While Shannon isn’t a veteran, she has relatives who are and felt this was an appropriate way to honor those who served our country so selflessly.

“It just felt like the right thing to do,” she said. “I have great pride in our flag and it’s another way to give a gift to a veteran that we don’t even know and to honor them one final time.”

The funeral home was very thankful for BrightView’s patriotic donation.

“We feel that families of veterans feel honored to have an American flag placed in with their loved one for their cremation as it is one last act of honor to the flag that they fought to protect,” said Jack Mitchell IV of Mitchell-Wiedefeld Funeral Home. “The donation of flags provided by Brightview will allow us to offer that service to families for some time to come. We appreciate BrightView’s commitment to our military veterans.”
