CAN-Struction teams needed, purchasing department reminders, Fidelity NetBenefits for your saving strategies, work anniversaries and more

We still need two more CAN-Struction teams! Join us in a little friendly competition as teams go head-to-head, turning cans of food into works of art. The design work is done, cans have been collected, now we just need BUILDERS!

There will be team t-shirts and awards for awesomeness!

Remember, all food will be donated to food pantries after the event. We’re not just building structures, we’re building a stronger, more connected community! Reach out to Holly or Deana to sign up!

Congratulations to all our employees celebrating a work anniversary in February!


The Runway 5K to support the Treehouse Foundation will be Sunday, April 28 at Northampton Airport. Team No Sparks will be representing Elm again! If you can’t join the team or are busy that day, make sure you throw your support behind Team No Sparks!
