It’s always a great day in April when University Loft breaks ground to put a new set of saplings into it. In honor of Arbor Day and the love we have for the environment, we held another amazing tree planting event on the grounds of University Loft Company in Greenfield, Indiana.

This Was Our Arbor Day

We invited students from Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, Indiana to come out to the LOFT factory for the day. It’s an event that everyone looks forward to. The staff of ULC takes the students on a tour of the facility and share a bit about each department. Founder and CEO James Jannetides was also on hand inspiring the students.

An annual Arbor Day tradition of University Loft is the shooting of the cannon. It was a sight to see the students jump at the sound of the boom.

Corporate pastor of University Loft, Del Bock reflected on the day, “I heard James emphasis to the senior class of Cathedral High School these formative words, ‘There are many voices in this world; all of them are pointing to something. The skill is following the right voice. There are voices that will lead you to very negative decisions, and one voice of God that will define your destiny and fulfill your purposes.’

“It is an amazing thing to see year after year a visionary extraordinaire, James Jannetides, pour his heart and his life’s experience into these young peoples’ minds.”

As James handed each student a sapling to plant, he was encouraging extended education by asking each student where they would be attending college.

During the whole celebration scents of grilling hamburgers and hot dogs hung in the air. They broke ground and planted the saplings. Then finally got to sit down and enjoy lunch.

“As in every year, from arrival of the faculty and students to the grilled lunch, the staff of University Loft Company did a stellar job in hosting and inspiring this next generation.” Del concluded.

As a contract furniture company, it is a pleasure and honor to give back to our environment in this way.
