So, the room started to buzz when Michelle arrived and began to set up for the team building event. The participants wondered what they were going to do with all of the assorted bike parts that were displayed.

They are most known for soaps, detergents, and oral hygiene products (including toothpaste and toothbrushes). They also a manufacturer of veterinary products (Hill’s brand). The fun team-building event took place in their corporate offices. The teams were highly competitive and full of energy. They were even “shushed” by a group down the hall. However, that did not stop the group from achieving their Build-A-Bike ® goals.
Sonia Galarza, Director of In-Kind & Pro-Bono Resources at the NYC Administration for Children’s Services arrived at the end of the event. She let the Colgate-Palmolive employees know how the bikes that the built would be put to good use. Children who use their facilities and are in their system would now have bicycles to use after school. The participants were happy that their afternoon efforts went to a great cause.
