I’m proud of our employees for living out our commitment this holiday season.”
Many of the firm’s offices bought gifts for children and families, hoping to brighten the holiday season.

Staff also volunteered their time at events in their communities. Employees in the firm’s Richmond office participated in the “We Care” event at their local Boys and Girls Club, partnering with fellow design professionals to help children complete craft projects. Jackson, Mississippi staff served lunch at Stewpot Ministries and rang bells for The Salvation Army, while employees in the firm’s Nashville office donated funds and supplies to the Humane Society and participated in the ninth annual Gingertown build, which raises funds for a variety of Nashville non-profit organizations.
