ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CF Real Estate Services, a multifamily real estate company, is significantly expanding its corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts. The organization kicked off its outreach last fall with a National Week of Service. Dozens of associates from every part of the company donated to and volunteered with nonprofits that help feed the hungry, help children, rescue pets, provide quality housing and more.
Now the privately-owned company is organizing two weeks of service each year – one in the spring and one in the fall.
“We were blown away by the participation last year,” says Week of Service organizer Alan Walsh, CF’s Senior Vice President of Human Resources. “Now we want to raise the bar, expand our horizons and help even more people.”
The Spring Week of Service will reach at least 40 nonprofits in 25 cities in 10 states. The efforts kicked off this week in Texas, with events at the Dallas Animal Shelter, as well as a senior center and food bank in Conroe. The week of April 23 expands the efforts across nine other states including Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Maryland, South Carolina, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. Beneficiaries of the efforts include organizations that help the homeless and hungry, survivors of domestic abuse, seriously ill and needy children, the environment, domesticated animals and wildlife, and other causes.
In addition, CF provides all associates 4 hours of paid service per month to volunteer at a charity of their choice.
“Giving back is part of the culture of our company,” Walsh concluded. “It’s all about service more than anything else.”
