Give Big: Efforts Continue to Impact Local Communities
As we’ve shared before, one of Yeske Buie’s defined core values is our commitment to sharing our time, our intellect, and our resources. Accordingly, the team volunteers on a quarterly basis, at minimum, as part of our Give Big initiative to make a difference in our local communities. As time has passed, both teams have identified their favorite organizations on their respective coasts and the team’s most recent Give Big efforts took them back to these organizations: Food for Others in Virginia and SF-Marin Food Bank in San Francisco.
Below we share several pictures of our teams in action! At Food for Others, our team members helped unload a donation of 1,000 power pack lunches for schools, crate and bag fresh, crisp apples for distribution, and pack grocery bags for those in need. In San Francisco, Sabina and Jen both volunteered at SF-Marin Food Bank by packing grocery boxes on their efficient conveyor line, boxing fruit, and bagging rice, pasta, and beans. Finally, our newest Resident Financial Planners volunteered for California Coast Commission’s Coastal Clean Up Day by spending the morning scouring Aquatic Park and the surrounding area for trash. Every year on the third Saturday in September, people join together at sites all over California to take part in the state’s largest volunteer event. In 2014, nearly 67,000 volunteers removed more than 1,190,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California’s beaches, lakes, and waterways. Stay tuned to future Digests to see more from our next Give Big efforts.
