'Twas the night before Christmas
'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through ms,
Engineers, architects, and planners were all working for success.
The architects were designing, all snug at their desks,
While visions of LEED certifications danced in their heads.
The planners were crafting communities big and small;
Engineers designing for the welfare and safety for all.
A rooftop commotion caused them all to turn 'round,
And down from the chimney Tom came with a bound.
With a wink of an eye and a twist of his head,
He began the Christmas wish all of ms has said:
We are proud of our relationship with you,
You make our days merry and bright!
Happiest Holidays to all,
And to all a good-night!
While we take this time to thank our clients and colleagues, we also focusing on giving back to our communities during the holidays. Each office location is partnering with the following organizations this holiday season:
The Columbus team will be holding a gift card drive to benefit Pathways to Hope. Pathways to Hope is a program led by Catholic Social Services, supporting women and children who are displaced due to domestic violence.
A long-term partnership and program, the Youngstown team has committed to adopt 10 families and their children this season through Catholic Charities. The team purchases gifts for the children and provides food to the families through grocery gift cards and non-perishable food donations.
Once again, the Pittsburgh team is supporting the PennDOT food drive. Employee donations help feed families throughout the holidays. In addition, Pittsburgh donates household goods to the Beavers County Women’s Center and toys to the Women’s Choice Network Shelter.
The Raleigh team is participating in the Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” program, both through donations and by serving as a toy drop-off location for the area.
A building-wide program, the Indianapolis team is participating in the United Way Giving Tree. Each person chooses a family from the tree and provides that family with the items on their wish list. In addition, Indianapolis is also supporting Water for People.
For the second year in a row, the Akron team is supporting the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank through monetary donations for the Long Haul Against Hunger. During this initiative, donations are matched by the FirstEnergy Foundation, Summa Health, The J.M. Smucker Company, and the 415 Group.
In collaboration with other tenants in their office building, the Harrisburg team is participating in a holiday food drive.
