Coworkers Spend the Day Giving Back

Last month, 18 employees from Regency Centers volunteered their time at Shelter House in Fairfax County, VA. We asked about their experience.

“It was a great day!” said Regional Property Manager Thomas Howard, “our team really enjoyed the time we spent working with the shelters.”

Volunteers painted the kitchen, dining room, living room, hallway, and entry way at one of the volunteer sites. Another group installed new mulch, trimmed bushes, and restored an overgrown garden area. They also organized the donation room, which was a very needed task.

“We were also able to put together a care package of food, home products, and toys for those utilizing the house,” Thomas said.

Thanks for helping us #DoMore in the National Capital Community!
