A commitment to our communities has long been part of our firm’s DNA. While you’ll find us engaged with various organizations throughout the year, it’s during the holiday season that we really shine. We started in October with our 9th annual Pipeline Trail Clean Up. Volunteers from our Richmond office spent the afternoon along the James River shoreline, just a short walk from our office, canvassing for trash and debris. This year’s cleanup filled 13 bags with trash, and provided valuable data to Clean Virginia Waterways.
November found our teams in the spirit of giving. In Orlando, the team kicked things off with the International Interior Design Association’s (IIDA) Chairs for Charity event where they partnered with local vendors to design a chair for the auction. Their chair helped to raise over $3,000 for BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation. As we approached Thanksgiving, our DC and Richmond offices collaborated on Thanksgiving baskets to donate to families in need, working with Richmond-based Peter Paul Development Center and DC-based So Others Might Eat. This annual tradition at Baskervill is one of our team’s favorite ways to give back at this special time of year.
Finally, with the holidays fast approaching, teams in Richmond and Orlando took time to focus on the kids. Richmond adopted over 20 children through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, our 20th year working with the Central Virginia Salvation Army to give a happy holiday to kids who may not otherwise have one. In Orlando, our team participated in the Herman Miller and Boys and Girls Club of America’s We Care event for the second year, helping children craft gifts for their friends and family, and getting everyone into the holiday spirit!
We hope this finds you in the spirit of the season and wish you all a very happy holidays!
