In the Community
What’s an organization if it is not giving back to its community?
We take our civic responsibilities very seriously. Whether it’s serving on the board of a non-profit, being involved with organizations at our children’s schools, collecting school supplies for children in need, or sponsoring families and organizations during the holidays, we are devoted to the communities in which we work and live.
August 21, 2015 Volunteering at the ARC Northern Chesapeake Region’s carnival.
About a week and a half before Christmas we received word that a Cecil County Public School would not be receiving the necessary amount of gifts for their children in need and WC&S set out to help!
We made a couple of phone calls, and the firm along with Colonial Metals, Purnell Body Shop and Raymond “Chick” and Anne Hamm pulled together $4,000 for 68 children at Holly Hall Elementary School!
The best part was going to the school to deliver the check, meet Kelly Riser, Principal and her awesome staff and going shopping for the gifts at Toys R Us!
This is what giving back is all about!
Our employee holiday giving this year consisted of employees donating their money to purchase gifts for Arrow Child & Family Ministries. Our Lutherville office collected money to purchase gifts for some children at the Cromwell Bridge location. They delivered gifts and boxed Chick-Fil-A lunches.
Our Bel Air office collected money to purchase a gaming system for the girls who live in the dorm at the Belcamp location. They delivered the gift and had a pizza party with the girls and played games. The girls made us a thank you card which was priceless.
Due to the sensitive nature of some of the children’s circumstances we could not take pictures of the children.
Our 4th Annual Turkey ‘Carving’ Day at the Salvation Army Warehouse in Hampden. We must do a great job preparing all the turkeys for Thanksgiving meals because Peggy Vick has asked us back year after year!
We had two teams bowl for the Junior Achievement Bowl-a-Thon 2014 and raised over $1400 for BizTown! Then the teams had a little friendly competition at the alley!
WC&S volunteered at Junior Achievement’s BizTown to help teach financial literacy to elementary school children. Everyone had a great time and the kids were awesome!
