National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week is a yearly week of recognition for the many, many people in the U.S. and Canada who give generously of their time and resources to a huge variety of causes. In the United States, Nixon established National Volunteer Week in 1974. The week is used to bring awareness to the contributions of volunteers and to encourage more people to donate their time to a local, national, or global cause.
HBK understands the importance of supporting and giving back to the communities around us. Through HBK IMPACT, our employee volunteer program, employees were given the opportunity to participate in a volunteer day across all offices. Below are the events that tool place:
HBK’s Norristown office kicked off National Volunteer Week participating in the
Valley Forge Revolutionary Run:
On April 23, 2017 for the third year in a row, members of HBK’s Philadelphia area offices and The Roderick Group participated in the Revolutionary 5-mile Run at Valley Forge National Park. Proceeds from the run benefit improvements at Valley Forge National Park. Nearly 1000 people participated in the run/walk raising $50,000 to fund improvements to Valley Forge National Historic Park. Thanks to all who participated and represented HBK and our teammates in the race and at the exposition. HBK encourages everyone to get outside and enjoy our National Parks!
