Lilly Employees Take Off Lab Coats; Put on Work Gloves, Boots

Global 'Day of Service' in 40 countries


Thousands of volunteers put on work gloves Thursday for Eli Lilly's Global Day of Service.

About 8,000 employees in Indianapolis will pull weeds, pick up trash and plant flowers. Twenty-thousand Lilly workers volunteered for community projects in 40 countries around the world.

However, Lilly Foundation President Rob Smith said the big project in Indianapolis is called "Reconnecting to our Waterways."

The project will open up the view and access to local waterway -- like Fall Creek -- and allow neighborhoods to reconnect.
