Community Service Week 2021 – Celebrating Over 675 Volunteer Hours
This past week we are filled with gratitude for the spirit of caring performed by the Robertson Ryan team. Our associates demonstrate time and time again that when we bring together our collective resources, reach and resolve, we create an amazing force of giving.
Our firm and our colleagues have always had an abiding respect for nature. That is why we selected “the environment” as our 2021 service theme. Many of our outdoor focused projects included face-lifts and clean-up at community green spaces and waterways.
Over 225 volunteers across 23 states came together to perform over 675 hours of volunteer work. Our shared goal was to make this fun, simple and safe for our team, and their friends and family who joined.
