A lot of the good works we do are driven by our employees’ commitments to their communities. When someone rings out a rallying cry, most of us show up to pitch in.
Millie and Severson is a proud supporter of Save Our Beach and regularly participates in beach cleanups in nearby Seal Beach. To participate and learn more, visit Save Our Beach here.
Scott Hayes, Millie and Severson’s Chief Estimator, has been participating with the ACE Mentor program for more than 5 years. Scott commits at least 2 hours each week to mentor young students and teach them about the rewards of a career in architecture, construction and engineering.
We believe that every small thing we can do to help those less fortunate than ourselves makes a big difference. That’s why so many of our efforts are focused on actions that impact our very local communities as well as those in need across the globe.
Millie and Severson is proud to support a variety of organizations that are important to our employees and our clients. Each year we give generously to causes ranging from the Boys & Girls Club to City of Hope to Habitat for Humanity through cash contributions.
As part of Giving back, we were delighted to support local charity Precious Life Shelter. The goal of the shelter is for each woman to regain stability and become self-reliant. To that end, construction recently wrapped up on the beautiful new residences on Cherry Street, with a Ribbon Cutting and dedication. The new property will offer permanent housing for qualified graduates and their children.
For the fifth consecutive year, Millie and Severson employees take part in Operation Christmas Child, a gift drive to provide Christmas cheer to less fortunate children outside the United States. Boxes are provided for employees to fill up with toys, clothes and essentials, giving every child the thrill of having a gift on Christmas day. The program, sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, has reached more than 135 million children all across the globe and reminds us all of the joy of giving back. To learn more about Operation Christmas Child, please visit them here.
Millie and Severson has been a proud supporter of Toys for Tots for the past five years. The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Tots for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. Our toy donations are turned over to the Naval Station in Seal Beach.
22 Millie and Severson employees and their families participated in the Tour of Long Beach. The team rode to support pediatric cancer research at Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach with a goal of raising $3,000.
Millie and Severson was proud to be a part of the team who undertook the remodeling of The Concerned Family kitchen which provides hot food and outreach to homeless and low-income community members of the Mead Valley area. The remodel was wholly funded by donations of both funds and labor from Trammell Crow Company and its partners, including Millie and Severson, consultants and suppliers. The remodel delivered a new commercial kitchen which will allow TCF to expand its services to benefit the Mead Valley Community. In the long term, the kitchen will also serve as a training ground for people coming out of incarceration who have no skills with which to get gainful employment. Over 20 organizations donated their time and/or materials for this project.
