Intern Impact Day June 24 will involve interns from Air Products, ArtsQuest, Lutron, Lehigh Valley Health Network, PPL Electric Utilities and Victualic. The groups will have the opportunity to work together at a number of different nonprofits, including Flint Hill Farm, Camel's Hump, Greater Easton Development Partnership, Hoover Mason Trestle, SouthSide Bethlehem, Monocacy Farm Project, the Kellyn Foundation and Gress Mountain Ranch. A total of 160 interns in teams of 20 volunteers from different employers will be at each location. ABOVE: In 2019, Intern Impact Day brought together over 200 interns across 11 different community service projects, as the Volunteer Center partnered with major Lehigh Valley employers to put that initial idea into action.
