Staff at Avison Young will join together for the firm’s fifth annual global Day of Giving on Thursday.
The Toronto-based real estate firm’s initiative began in 2014 and this year will take place across 84 offices as part of the company’s global citizenship strategy.
Each Avison Young office has chosen its own community volunteer project in consultation with the charity that will receive the assistance.
“On October 25, employees in Avison Young’s 84 offices in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and Europe will again volunteer to assist community organizations that lend a helping hand to people dealing with some of life’s most difficult challenges,” says chair and CEO Mark E. Rose. “This is our small way of trying to make a big difference in the lives of others who need assistance, often due to no fault of their own. As we help initiate change at the grassroots level, we will also be promoting the principles of sustainability through action and partnership.”
Local staff activities will range from packing food at food banks; to painting, cleaning and landscaping at animal and youth shelters; to making crafts with senior citizens.
