HMC employees give back to their communities through toy drives and fundraising efforts like CANstruction, which benefits local food banks. Employees raised $4,200 for assistance to Haitian earthquake victims; another $5,000, plus a $5,000 match from HMC’s Designing Futures Foundation, went to victims of Japan’s tsunami. Janice Endsley and HMC colleagues have volunteered at the Sea No Evil Art Show, an annual benefit for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which has raised $300,000 for ocean mammal protection in the past five years.

HMC Project Manager Andrea Ruelas, LEED AP BD+C, led a fundraising effort through her church to benefit Ciudad de los Niños Orphanage in Matamoros, Mexico.

Konni Doi, CID, LEED AP, Principal/Senior Interior Designer, managed the distribution of donated computer tables, chairs, and other furniture from long-time HMC vendor KI. The furniture, estimated to be worth $10,000-20,000, found a home at the Riverside, Calif., facility of Operation SafeHouse, an emergency shelter for teens. +
