Hurwitz Fine participates in the United Way’s Day of Caring

On Tuesday, June 18th, as part of Hurwitz Fine’s ongoing community service initiative, employees participated in the United Way’s Day of Caring. The United Way Day of Caring brings together individuals, businesses, and organizations from across the Western New York community to make an impact through service. Two teams of volunteers from Hurwitz Fine participated in events at the CHC Learning Center (f/k/a Center for Handicapped Children, Inc) and the Buffalo City Mission.

At the Buffalo City Mission, our volunteers gardened at the Men’s Shelter. They worked on landscaping around the City Mission, weeding, trimming overgrown plants and picking up trash on several garden beds and areas surrounding the building. The Buffalo City Mission Men’s Shelter works to help homeless men with safe shelter, hot meals, counseling and recuperative care. In addition to gardening with several other volunteers, they were able to tour the City Mission and learn more about the services the space offers those in need.

At the CHC Learning Center, our team worked alongside additional volunteers to help weed and put topsoil down in the flower beds in front of the school. They were also able to tour the facility and learn about the children and the school. The CHC Learning Center provides educational and therapeutic programming for pre-school and school age children with disabilities.

This year, more than 2,000 volunteers participated at the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County's Day of Caring, logging more than 8,000 hours of service for 76 nonprofit organizations throughout Erie County and representing a $250,000 investment in the Western New York community.
