LITTLETON – Flower boxes filled with colorful blossoms now greet motorists and pedestrians as they turn onto Industrial Parkway from Meadow Street. Littleton Coin employee Katelyn suggested beautification of the bridge as the company's project when the Community Service Program officially began. The flower boxes are just one contribution.

“Because the company's officers believe in giving back to the community, we tested this program on a trial basis last November when we decorated the bridge with holiday wreaths,” said Milton Bratz, Director of Administrative Operations. “We encourage employees to participate by offering paid volunteer hours.” Three times a year, employees pick up trash along the roadway between the Lisbon town line and Meadow Street, and maintain the floral arrangements under the Industrial Parkway sign, or they can also volunteer for community service in a non-profit organization of their choice.

Founded in 1945, Littleton Coin Company is one of the world's largest buyers and sellers of coins and paper money. Renowned for providing friendly, reliable, and expert service to collectors, the company employs more than 320 local residents and is led by President David Sundman.
