bfi NY participates in "We Care'' Children's Holiday Event

The holidays can be a particularly trying time for children from disadvantaged circumstances, but thanks to the continuing non-profit and business partnership known as "We Care," the season is once again a little bit brighter for kids across the country.

For ten years, We Care has united the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Children's Aid Society here in New York with office furniture manufacturers Geiger, Herman Miller, Inc., and some of America's leading interior design and architectural firms, to host holiday gatherings and a fun filled day of arts & crafts for children in need.

Our New York City Offices recently volunteered their time in the annual We Care project. The effort was coordinated by Lisa Adonetti, Wendy Pflaum of bfi NYC. The entire NYC office assisted in assembling this year's craft of a Snowman Magnet. Joseph Adonetti, Lisa's father, donated sports memorabilia for over 400 children & Mark Kramer of Susan lawrence Catering donated chocolate Santas for all the children's goodie bags. bfi also sponsored a table where volunteers assisted the children in assembling our craft. This year's event was better than ever. Many new firms participated and is was an overall success for everyone involved. Thank you to all who participated. We look forward to We Care 2007!
