​Pearce Observes Day of Caring at New Haven Land Trust
16th Consecutive Year of Company-wide Volunteerism in Community
North Haven, CT (October 14, 2016) – For the 16th consecutive year, Pearce Real Estate employees and agents recently participated in its annual Day of Caring.  Company offices were closed and all official work was stopped as the Pearce workforce focused its attention on service to the community. This year, Pearce chose to volunteer its time and efforts to the New Haven Land Trust (NHLT).  
“Giving back to the community is inherent in our culture,” said Barbara L. Pearce, CEO and President of Pearce Real Estate, who led the Company’s presence at the New Haven Land Trust community garden on Grand Avenue, New Haven.  “Some of the Pearce team are weekend gardeners, some are not experts but all are committed to the task of giving a helping hand to a local organization which cares and makes the community more vibrant. As always, it was a great day for us that ended with a sense of accomplishment for what we did, and appreciation we felt by the gratitude expressed by officials at New Haven Land Trust,” she added. 
Under the director of Bradley Fleming, NHLT’s Community Farms Manager, the Pearce volunteers cut down trees, pulled old plants, refreshed raised beds, painted boards, re-positioned soil, did general cleanup and even performed some clerical work.  Justin Elicker, Executive Director of New Haven Land Trust, addressed the group and thanked them for their service. He reiterated the mission of NHLT which is to provide community gardening spaces, to preserve open spaces and to educate New Haven resident about the environment.   For more information about New Haven Land Trust, please go to
