Cushman & Wakefield’s Asset Services in Northern California maintains its mission of supporting their community. After numerous members joined several efforts around Northern California during 2022, this community-driven team recently assisted two organizations in March 2023. The team joined Sacred Heart Community Service to help feed and clothe those in need along with the San Francisco Recreations & Parks in a horticultural maintenance event.
On March 14, Cushman & Wakefield’s NorCal Asset Services helped Sacred Heart Community Service located at 1381 S 1st Street in San Jose. The team worked hard for a few hours in the morning to assist the facility’s food pantry and clothing area.
The large team of C&W volunteers included leader Jillian Monteleone (Event Coordinator), John McMaster, Kathy Nguyen, Sean Yamagiwa, Michele Larson, Eddie Romo, Juliana Veloso, Juliet Stevenson, and Angelica Munoz.
About Sacred Heart Community Service
Louise Benson founded Sacred Heart Community Service in 1964 to feed hungry families in her neighborhood. Today, providing essential services to individuals and families in need remains one of Sacred Heart’s core strategies. In 2008, Sacred Heart was selected by the State of California to be the Community Action Agency for Santa Clara County formalizing its role as a regional leader in developing solutions to poverty. The organization has also evolved into a respected and innovative provider of programs that assists families with achieving lifelong economic self-sufficiency.
Sacred Heart is planning a second location in downtown San Jose and is seeking monetary donations to fund the space for its essential services.
On March 16, Cushman & Wakefield’s NorCal Community Service Advisory Committee partnered with San Francisco Recreation and Park Department (SFRPD) for a horticultural restoration event. The team participated in a fun community service event at Mission Dolores Park. Volunteers weeded among the ornamental planter beds in the children's playground area to get ready for spring.
The mighty C&W volunteer restoration team was led by Denise Yee (Event Coordinator) together with Del Fuette, Stevenz Relos, Victoria Kardum, Jacqueline Rojas, Andrew Mendoza, and Joshua Padilla.
“It was a great feeling to give back to the community and help maintain the landscaping at this beautiful park.” – Denise Yee.
Cushman & Wakefield also assisted the SFRPD for a habitat restoration event at the Great Highway in Summer 2022, and encourages everyone to assist their communities in any way possible!
