As part of our “Responsibility Revolution”, we partake in several community service events throughout the year. Last year we participated in various events like Habitat for Humanity, the SWA’s Paint Your Heart Out, United Way’s Back to School Bash, the Big Heart Brigade’s Thanksgiving Feast, and the Adopt-A-Family’s Adopter & Santa Shoppe programs, to name a few.
We had a great time working to make our community a better place and can’t wait for what 2014 has in store for REAL Leaders!
West Palm Beach, Fla. – NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, Inc., one of South Florida’s leading commercial real estate services firm, wants to start a revolution— a “responsibility revolution.” Here, in one of the nation’s biggest regions for charity balls, luncheons, polo parties, tea soirees and more, the firm says businesses need to keep pace, and donating dollars to charitable efforts is not enough. Says Neil E. Merin, Chairman of NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, “It’s not just about bottom-line profits but bottom-line benefits to our communities. If businesses in the Palm Beach and Treasure Coast regions donated even a small fraction of their efforts to promoting employee involvement in socially responsible causes, we could ‘move’ a lot more mountains.”
NAI/Merin Hunter Codman is challenging area firms to establish programs that allow employees to donate company time to non-profit causes. “At work” days might involve “working” on repainting buildings for Kids in Distress, fueling food drives for the Urban League, nailing two-by-fours for Habitat for Humanity, or cleaning up area beaches, among other worthwhile causes that need man and woman power behind them — not just dollars.
