Danielle Robinson, PhD, Director, Alcohol Policy and Corporate Reputation Management at Diageo, who also serves on the Carver Board of Directors, brought a team of co-workers to the Carver Community Center to redecorate two classrooms!
Diageo North America, Inc. is headquartered in Norwalk and is a longtime supporter of Carver’s educational programs. Diageo was formed in 1997 from the merger of Guiness and Grand Metropolitan. Like another Carver donor, Xerox, the name Diageo is an invented name. The name is composed of the Latin word "dia", meaning day, and the Greek root "geo", meaning world, and is meant to reference the company giving pleasure every day, everywhere.
Diageo employees were true to their company’s name when they brought bright colors, beanbag chairs, new shelving, wall hangings and bright artwork to the Carver community. Carver students immediately appreciated the gifts and the new sense of joy our friends at Diageo invested in their space.
Thank you, Diageo!
