Several MBX Systems employees braved Friday's heat to work on farmyard and other projects at Lambs Farm in Libertyville.
Eight employees, including company CEO Tom Crowley, spent the day building a shade shelter for baby animals and a climbing area for goats. A second group worked on a beautification project near the campus' residential area.
The Libertyville technology company launched MBX Cares in 2014 to provide employees the opportunity to participate in charitable causes in the Libertyville area and in their own communities.
Crowley said the MBX Cares program has grown into something they are proud of and look forward to helping in the community.
"We figured it was time to start some type of outreach program within our community," he said. "We found out that it's been very widely accepted and it's something that the employees are really excited about and engaged in."
