AY Day of Giving
Avison Young's Philadelphia office coordinated Harvest Festival activities for students of Benjamin B. Comegys Elementary School and painted at Valley Youth House on Oct. 24, 2019 as a part of Avison Young's global Day Of Giving.
Avison Young’s global Day of Giving is part of the company’s Global Citizenship strategy. Each Avison Young office chose its own community volunteer project in consultation with the charity that will receive the assistance.
“The foundations of our inclusive culture and success are built on the ways in which we care for our colleagues, clients and communities,” says Martin Dockrill, Avison Young Principal and Chief Operating Officer, Global Operations, who is based in Toronto. “Led by members of our Emerging Leaders program, the Day of Giving provides Avison Young’s future leaders the chance to engage, organize and guide everyone in the company in philanthropic endeavours that resonate. I am humbled to be part of a company that values philanthropy so highly. The Day of Giving allows all of us to feel the wellness, camaraderie and gratitude that result from giving back. These small acts of kindness make a large difference in the lives of others.”
Avison Young’s Day of Giving is held annually in the firm’s markets each October.
