Polly is very excited to announce two new community sponsorships for the summer of 2022. Our sponsorship of the Vermont Lake Monsters and the brand-new Vermont Green Football Club will help support the summer entertainment offerings in our home state, aid the enhancements to a beloved 116 year-old venue, and help promote advancements to a greener Vermont.
These organizations resonated with our company values, and we felt their missions were a great fit with our own.
Be Bold: Just like Polly, The Lake Monsters and the VGFC take on a bold twist to their industries by taking steps that are innovative and fresh. The VGFC takes on the soccer world as a catalyst for social justice and environmental sustainability. Centennial Field, the Lake Monsters home field, has been refreshed and continues to grow into a venue Vermonters can take pride in.
Be Caring: Polly engages in many volunteer opportunities throughout our nationwide footprint as every employee is encouraged to be an advocate in their community. VGFC volunteers locally and most importantly cares about being efficient stewards of resources to improve the world. The Lake Monsters support local non-profit organizations as well as churches and charitable foundations.
Be Real: Being real is part of the essence for Polly, VGFC and the Lake Monsters. Building relationships, connecting to the community and supporting one another is what it is all about. Together, we can be powerful players in our community.
