One of the firm’s distinguishing features is its commitment to the District of Columbia, its communities, and its families.
The company volunteers considerable resources – money, people, and time to improve the quality of life in Washington, working in partnership with vendors, subcontractors, local and national organizations and the government of the District of Columbia.
The main focus of our commitment to community is strengthening families and supporting education and workforce development. In addition to financial support, the company routinely performs repairs and restoration to the infrastructure of the schools we adopt. In recent years, we have made improvements to Garfield, Green, Patricia Harris, Patterson, Leckie and Stanton and St. Thomas More Elementary Schools; Washington Middle School for Girls; Johnson Jr. High School; and Ballou High School. We are also one of the primary corporate sponsors of the Ballou High School band. Our neighborhood beautification program extends to city libraries, police stations, parks and other public venues, as well.
