On September 7, the For Rent Media Solutions office in downtown Norfolk was a little more quiet than usual. Many of our employees participated in the United Way’s Day of Caring, an uplifting day of volunteerism in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. On this day, FRMS employees spent the day working side-by-side with co-workers outside of the office landscaping, painting, cleaning and working on whatever needed to be done at multiple project sites selected by United Way.
Employees made their rounds, assisting everywhere from local residential homes to shelters and museums. Erin Zarate, Marketing Manager, volunteered at a local residence, for a woman who dedicates the majority of her time caring for her child who is severely mentally retarded and physically and medically fragile. As a volunteer, Erin did yard work and helped paint the woman’s garage. Account Executive, Linda Perryman, volunteered at the Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, Virginia. While there, she showed off her green thumb, gardening and cleaning museum signs and preparing the flowers for show. Other volunteer locations included the Dwelling Place and the King House, local family shelters; as well as Meals on Wheels.
At For Rent Media Solutions, helping other is how we do business. Our company’s effort to give aid has extended beyond the traditional business-to-business and business-to-consumer relationships. How do you help in your community?
