Caterpillar's Employees LIVE UNITED!
 CAT Employees
Employees from Caterpillar volunteered their time to help make a difference at Mutual Ground!  The Caterpillar "Day of Caring" involved trimming bushes, raking leaves, pulling weeds, painting and more! 

Pam Clemen, Associate Director at Mutual Ground said the volunteers did an amazing job to help clean up and beautify the grounds.  The organization greatly appreciated their efforts.

Thank you - CAT Employees for choosing to LIVE UNITED and make a difference in your community!
