Members of the Adams and Reese Sarasota office participated in United Way Suncoast’s 2016 “Day of Caring” by donating their time to help beautify the grounds of The Florida Center for Early Childhood. Attorney and staff volunteers contributed hours of gardening and landscaping services at the early childhood center’s Sarasota location on Saturday, Oct. 22nd. The services will enable the Center to begin holding early education classes and programming outdoors for the children and families it serves.
The Adams and Reese “Calming of the Jungle” volunteer project was part of United Way Suncoast’s 2016 “United Way Day of Caring” initiative, which enlisted corporate volunteer teams to tackle various projects of United Way partner agencies. Many of the projects were ones that most nonprofit agencies could not undertake on their own. Adams and Reese volunteers spent the morning weeding, trimming trees and bushes, planting flowers and uprooting plants to help beautify the grounds outside the Center.
“We were very excited to participate in the 2016 United Way Day of Caring Project and to join forces with our longtime philanthropic partner, United Way Suncoast,” said Adams and Reese Sarasota Partner in Charge Jason Gaskill. “We’re proud to help The Florida Center for Early Childhood as part of this initiative, and we hope our efforts help the Center further the great work it provides to the children and families it serves.”
Adams and Reese has been a longtime supporter of United Way Suncoast through its HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving and Support) corporate philanthropy and employee volunteer program. Since the inception of HUGS in 1988, Adams and Reese has devoted financial resources and thousands of volunteer hours offering assistance to HUGS partner organizations and others in need throughout its 16 offices and 15 communities.
