By October 16, 2016Our Culture

AV&Co.’s employee-led Pro Bono client engagements and Community Service efforts provide opportunities for staff to leverage our skills and capabilities in ways that make a difference locally, and globally. Some of our community service efforts include:

Rosie’s Place: On an ongoing basis, the firm supports Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women in Boston, through the donation of toiletries and food, food preparation, and our individual time on an ongoing basis.

Boston Marathon: Every spring, several members of our staff take part in the Boston Marathon Volunteering program. As volunteers we help to ensure the health and safety of the runners and spectators.

Charles River Cleanup: Each year, the firm supports the Charles River Watershed Association by donating and volunteering at the Charles River Cleanup. The Cleanup involves trash cleanup, planting, and painting.

Boston Cares: Each summer, we partner with Boston Cares to prepare under-privileged schools for the coming year.

Cradles for Crayons: In the weeks before Thanksgiving, we volunteer at the Cradles for Crayons warehouse to collect used clothing and school supplies for children in need.

MS Climb to the Top: We participate in the annual climb to the top of Rockefeller Center in New York to raise money for residents affected by multiple sclerosis.

Leake & Watts: The New York office works with Leake & Watts, an agency dedicated to helping at-risk youth, to raise money for their annual fundraising drive.

Real Options for City Kids (R.O.C.K.): AV&Co. collaborates with R.O.C.K., volunteering to supervise weekend play and fitness activities for San Francisco youth.

Nature in the City: In 2015, AV&Co. cleaned a park called Adah’s Stairway as part of the Nature in the City program for eco-literacy, restoration, and stewardship of San Francisco’s wild places.
