RICHMOND, VIRGINIA: Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer partnered with Richmond Animal League for the months of January and February 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 $1,189 for Richmond Animal League through “Friday Jeans” and the company contributed a $1,000 match for a total donation of $2,189 to Richmond Animal League. “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 various items to the dogs and cats in the care of Richmond Animal League including food, treats, toys, towels, and cleaning supplies.

• Giving generously of their time
   o Thalhimer partnered with Richmond Animal League for two volunteer opportunities on January 11 and 29, and provided associates paid time off to give back.
       Thalhimer associates assisted by moving equipment and storage items from several locations for RAL’s relocation of their offices to an adjacent building they recently purchased.
       Thalhimer associates also spent time walking dogs and socializing with cats at their shelter.

“Richmond Animal League is grateful to have been able to partner with Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer through Thalhimer Gives. Through this partnership, life-saving donations were raised for pets in need, necessary items for the shelter were collected, and the pets in RAL’s care were able to spend quality time with the Thalhimer associates. Above all, the two days of service provided by the associates allowed RAL staff to transition into a new space with ease and for that help we are immensely appreciative. It is only with the support and commitment of great community members and businesses like Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer that Richmond Animal League is able to provide hope, help and homes for pets in need in our community,” said Elizabeth Thomas, Executive Director of Richmond Animal League.

“The Richmond Animal League has a long history of service in the RVA community and protecting our four-legged friends. Thalhimer associates were happy to select RAL as one of our Thalhimer Gives charity partners for 2019. Our team not only enjoyed helping RAL move their office, but also visiting with the animals at their shelter,” Lee Warfield, President & CEO of Thalhimer.
