A Culture of Caring
Part of the Thrasher mission has always been to improve the places where we live and work, and it is one that we don’t take lightly. Not only do our services directly play a role in that, but our people do, too.
The Thrasher team served more than 200 community organizations in 2018, touching groups all across the Mid-Atlantic region. This has been a company-wide effort, with contributions coming from each of our offices – from playgrounds in Virginia to the YWCA in Charleston, we have truly made an impact for those around us.
As a company, we have provided sponsorships and donations for area STEM education efforts, community 5Ks and health initiatives, the local VA, and a host of others. Our donations to the United Way almost doubled this year, we collected more than 3,000 items for area schools, and we provided Christmas to more than 200 children.
It has taken each and every member of Team Thrasher to do this.
Our employees have provided their time, expertise, and generosity to serve our communities every day. We have Thrasher representatives at schools almost weekly to teach about the STEM fields. We had dozens of employees use their creativity to give a happy Halloween through the Bridgeport Trunk or Treat. And we’re helping our own, with employee-driven fundraisers for Bryan Hudkins as he works to get well.
Our contributions do not go unnoticed, Judy Bleecher, AIA WV Executive Director, is quoted saying:
“CANstruction Charleston is an innovative and fun design/build competition dedicated to ending hunger. The Thrasher Group’s six year commitment to providing great design, funds for the canned food (over 2000 pounds this year!) and employee time and talent I know is appreciated not only by the Covenant House food pantry, but also the community they serve.”
It is truly amazing how generous our Thrasher employees have been, and we are proud to continue that charitable spirit in 2019. We have already provided donations to a number of groups this year and we are planning ahead for a spring food drive.
Thank you for being a part of this culture of caring. Your work, time, and donations are truly contributing to a better community.
