Cushman & Wakefield’s South Florida offices partnered with Together We Rise, a non-profit organization that improves the lives of children in foster care, to donate bikes, skateboards and care packages with toys and necessities. The charitable initiative, spearheaded by the firm’s South Florida Events Committee, brought together Cushman & Wakefield professionals in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach for a worthy cause.
Employees took time out of their work day to put all of the donated items together. The Miami office built 10 bicycles, Fort Lauderdale built 10 skateboards, and Boca/West Palm assembled 20 Birthday Boxes with various toys, as well 25 Sweet Cases consisting of items like teddy bears and blankets, as well as necessities like toothbrushes. Boca/West Palm employees also decorated each care package by hand, putting their creative skills to test.
In total, Cushman & Wakefield donated more than $2,850 worth of items for children in need.
Thank you to all who organized and participated in this event! Giving back to the community is at the core of Cushman & Wakefield’s company culture, and we are proud to have employees who care about making a difference.
