Nurturing a community garden and its young gardeners living in a children’s emergency shelter. Encouraging teen girls (many of them underprivileged) to acquire skills they need to fulfill their career dreams. Volunteering with two high school groups (football and music) to provide tutoring, college prep and scholarships.

The projects our three volunteers of the year participate in are as varied as the ladies themselves – but they all focus on children. Let’s meet the three: First place winner Brittany Rogers, underwriter II in automotive aftermarket from Overland Park; and from San Diego, our second-place winner Aisha Davis, workers’ compensation underwriter and third place, Angie Keus, vice president, residential earthquake.

Friends and coworkers who organize fundraisers, buy supplies, give and support a coworker fighting breast cancer. Who organize a golf tournament, company breakfasts and more for young girls with RETT Syndrome.

Just ask our charity volunteers as we recap what our offices have been up to all year.

Charity begins at home. The home office, that is!

Our Carlsbad and San Diego teammates engaged in charity events every month in 2016, from gathering holiday gifts and school supplies to fixing meals and cleaning a riverbed. 

Early this year the sunny teams collected 45 much needed bath towels for the Toussaint Academy.  A group of volunteers sacrificed a weekend evening to prepare and serve 102 meals at the Ronald McDonald House. Our ACM coworkers raised $345 for RETT with their annual ValentineGrams. And a Coastal Clean-Up took place on March 15 where six volunteers joined forces with The San Diego River Park Foundation to spruce up the natural habitat at the mouth of the San Diego River.
