Toll Brothers volunteers ready Maine's Seeds of Peace Camp for its 20th season
OTISFIELD, MAINE | Armed with hammers, rakes and paint brushes, dozens of volunteers from the New England Division of Toll Brothers Inc. descended June 2 on Seeds of Peace’s International Camp to prepare the facility for its 20th summer of work with young leaders from global conflict regions.
“In one day, over 100 people affiliated with Toll Brothers work diligently to spruce up Camp,” said Executive Chairman Bob Toll. “They’ll prepare the property for the onslaught of campers who will create memories and forge lifelong friendships with previously perceived enemies.”
Toll Brothers Inc. is one of America’s leading luxury home builders and Toll is a member of the Board of Directors of Seeds of Peace.
This is the 14th consecutive summer that Toll Brothers employees, friends and family from all over the Northeast have headed to Otisfield in anticipation of the arrival of over 250 campers from the Middle East, South Asia and the United States.
“Those that come out on this one day tackle plumbing, electrical, carpentry and painting, along with many other special projects,” said Toll. “The critical mission of Camp is understood and all are proud to do their part. At the end of the day there is a huge cookout and we relish the accomplishments.”
“I am so grateful for the continued dedication of Toll Brothers and their amazing volunteers and sub-contractors,” said Seeds of Peace Executive Director Leslie Lewin.
“Each year they share their talents with us, strengthen our facility and in turn strengthen the impact of our Camp program—and we have a good time doing it! On behalf of the hundreds of people who will benefit this summer from their hard work, I extend our sincerest thanks.”
Seeds of Peace inspires and equips new generations of leaders from regions of conflict with the relationships, understanding, and skills needed to advance lasting peace.
