Every quarter, American Office employees participate in a community service activity. We believe that to be partners with local businesses we must actively work to make our communities better. We welcome our colleagues and clients to join us in our charitable initiatives. If you have a suggestion for our next event or would like to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In lieu of purchasing holiday cards, we wanted to say a big “thank you” to our customers by giving a donation to Feeding America in their honor. Our “Thanksgiving Thank You” charity drive brought in over 300 clients and helped to support food banks in Baltimore, Washington, Richmond, and Southeastern Virginia.
American Office’s Washington DC – Metro offices participated in Herman Miller’s annual holiday carnival “We Care” at a local Boys & Girls Club. At this event, we played games, gave out presents, and played Santa.
The earthquake in Haiti shook our hearts; by employee demand we hosted an internal fundraiser for the American Red Cross International Relief Fund. A “dress down” event; our employees showed support for the cause by contributing money to don jeans and jerseys. The event was our most successful employee fundraiser with over $2000 in donations from all 11 locations.
What would you pay to put your boss in a dunk tank? Our employees were happy to participate in this “fun”-raiser for Mercy Hospital’s NICU. With fierce competition among our offices and distribution centers, the DC office took home the “gold”. But, who will be sitting in the dunk-tank?!
Everyone loves spring cleaning! We participated in the annual “Turning the Page” book drive and cleaned our our bookshelves to help buy DC public school students new textbooks.
