We are passionate about all things native plants including design, architecture, and stewardship. Pizzo Cares is not just a catchphrase, but an important part of who we are. Our passions extend well beyond caring about the environment to helping our communities where we live. Here are just a few of the ways we enjoy giving back.
Make a Difference Day for Bloomingdale Park District
Forrest Rackmyer spoke to volunteers at Make a Difference Day for Bloomingdale Park District. Make A Difference Day, organized by Wolff Construction of Roselle, includes cleaning up trash, clearing invasive plants and vegetation, seeding native plants and vegetation, and more. The annual event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon, October 28 at Springfield Park.
Lemont Township Cleanup Days
Some employees from the Pizzo team volunteer to help keep Lemont Township’s park looking beautiful. Volunteers help clean up trash and remove invasive species. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to learn more about stewardship and natural areas and earn community service hours. Learn more about volunteering with Lemont Township.
Lakewood Falls Touch-a-Truck
Pizzo & Associates, Ltd. participated in Lakewood Falls Homeowners Association’s Touch-a-Truck event. This gave the Lakewood Falls residents a chance to get up close and learn all about the different companies that work with their community and provide a fun day for the kids.
Pizzo Blood Drive
In June 2017, we hosted a blood drive with Heartland Blood Centers at Pizzo Native Plant Nursery, LLC where donors from all four companies along with friends and family came out to donate. Every donation counts and we try to do our part.
NIU Volunteer Day
In the Spring of 2017, volunteers from all Pizzo Group companies teamed up with students from the Biology department at Northern Illinois University to clear brush and remove invasive species at Montgomery Hall. Just a month after we were there, the area was thriving with native species, creating a beautiful area for students and faculty to enjoy as wells as a home for local wildlife.
