As part of our HBC Serves philosophy, several Hoffman Brown teammates volunteered at Guide Dogs Of America (GDA) in Sylmar, CA in June. We helped this wonderful organization with their annual physical inventory of store merchandise. GDA does not receive any government funding. They are funded entirely by donations and grants, so volunteers are very important to them. By helping with their inventory we contributed in a small way to helping a blind or visually impaired person gain their independence.
Hoffman Brown makes many varied volunteer opportunities available to our teammates, and all full time, permanent employees are granted a paid day off to volunteer each year. While our goal is to help others, we find that each of us comes away feeling like we were the recipients of something special.
