RICHMOND, VIRGINIA: Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer partnered with The Arthritis Foundation Virginia for the months of March and April through their Thalhimer Gives company initiative focused on increasing community involvement and charitable giving. Through Thalhimer Gives, associates have the opportunity to actively engage in the community by donating financially, providing much-needed supplies, and giving generously of their time to local organizations. 

• Donating financially
   o Thalhimer associates raised $2,059 for Arthritis Foundation Virginia through “Friday Jeans” and the company contributed a $1,000 match for a total donation of $3,059 to Arthritis Foundation Virginia. “Friday Jeans” allows Thalhimer associates to wear jeans every Friday by making a $5 donation to the Thalhimer Gives partner organization.
• Providing much-needed supplies
   o Thalhimer associates donated camp supplies for children attending Camp Holiday Trails, as well as items needed for April’s Walk to Cure Arthritis, which included supplies for heating pads, and bottled water.
• Giving generously of their time
   o Thalhimer partnered with Arthritis Foundation Virginia for two volunteer opportunities on April 11 and April 27, and provided associates paid time off to give back.
       Thalhimer associates assisted with creating swag bags filled with camp supplies for Camp Holiday Trails, as well as making rice heating pads for both campers and attendees of Walk to Cure Arthritis.
       Thalhimer associates also assisted with Arthritis Foundation’s signature event, the Walk to Cure Arthritis of more than 250 walkers, held on April 27th. Associates assisted with set-up, registration, course help, and coordinated the rice heating pad activity table with race attendees.

“On behalf of the patients and families we serve in Virginia, we are so grateful for community partnerships such as this one with Thalhimer Gives. The campaign helped us raise funds for our walk program, increase awareness, and supply our juvenile arthritis campers with the ultimate camp goodie bag. We are thankful to the team at Thalhimer and truly can’t do the work we do without great partners! We look forward to continuing the relationship for years to come,” said Laura E. Boone, Executive Director of Arthritis Foundation Virginia.

“Our associates chose the Arthritis Foundation as a charity we wanted to support through our Thalhimer Gives program.  Arthritis is a debilitating disease that impacts many in our community. The local chapter of the Arthritis Foundation is active in pursuing a cure for this disease. Just as important, they provide resources and assistance to those who suffer from arthritis.  We enjoyed supporting their Walk to Cure event and making goodie bags for the children attending the juvenile arthritis camp,” Lee Warfield, President & CEO of Thalhimer.
