WHAT: Forrester Construction sponsors an annual Community Involvement Day in which all Team Members and their friends and family are invited to participate at one of the local Boys and Girls Club. Forrester rallies the support of its subcontractors and suppliers to donate supplies and labor. Together, the subcontractors and Forrester Team Members team up to renovate and improve the facilities for the children. This year, Forrester has adopted The Orr Boys and Girls Club in Southeast DC. Some of the upgrades to their facility include the painting of exterior playground space; repairing handrails and fencing; replacement of interior and exterior lights and bulbs; replacement of ceiling tile in various locations; painting of select interior spaces; and building of shelving and storage units.
WHY: As part of Forrester Construction Company’s corporate commitment to serving the local community, the firm has adopted The Orr Boys and Girls Club located in Ward 8. Forrester’s partnership with the Boys & Girls Club allows Forrester to help renovate various Boys and Girls Club facilities around the Washington D.C. area. Forrester currently has a total of five ongoing projects in this Ward and has adopted the Orr Club to add to its efforts to give back to that community.
