American Water Employees Mentor Youth in Camden

By SNJ Today Staff, September 27, 2018

CAMDEN, N.J. -

Volunteers from American Water spent their work day giving back to the community on Thursday, September 27th.

American Water employees volunteered their time at Hopeworks 'N Camden to mentor youth in the area as part of their annual company-wide Americans in Action Month.

Volunteers worked one-on-one with students to create an interactive map of the 16 parks and 69 trails located throughout Camden.

They then worked as a team to build an interactive digital treasure hunt where participants hunt for and find hidden objects by means of GPS coordinates located along trails on the map.

The map will be hosted by the Camden Greenway, which plans to utilize it as an innovative way to publish upcoming events in and around Camden.
