There is a group of Seabrook staff members who not only excel at their jobs but go above and beyond outside the workplace when it comes to doing good deeds. These employees contribute to communities outside of Seabrook regularly and do so out of a strong desire to lend a hand. This group is called the Erickson Way Committee, named after Seabrook s developer company Erickson Living. The concept has been embraced by so many of the company s 17 communities nationally who all share one common goal-work to assist groups and agencies wherever and whenever needed. Recently, Seabrook s Erickson Way Committee, in conjunction with members from the ARC of Monmouth, painted the home of a family in need in Englishtown. With the ARC of Monmouth, the group s task was to spruce up some of the rooms with a fresh coat of paint. Several members of the Seabrook staff donated a few hours of their time as part of the full-service s ongoing commitment to helping the nearby communities in Monmouth County. Seabrook Executive Director Art Sparks said, Seabrook is a community in and of itself, and a large part of being a community is being a good neighbor. I am extremely proud of these staff members who worked to help our friends and neighbors. The Erickson Way Committee is an important extension of the Seabrook family and we always feel a sense of pride after helping our friends and neighbors. We also thank our good friends from the ARC of Monmouth who worked by our side. Human Resources Manager Chris Labno said, Erickson Living places a large emphasis on giving back to its neighboring communities. This painting project, in addition to the other volunteer efforts accomplished by Seabrook s staff and residents alike, is an important way for us to touch people s lives outside our community while enriching our lives in the process. The house-painting project is one of several programs that Seabrook is involved in to better the community.
