Last Friday, September 21, 2012, Byrd Barr Place hosted ten volunteers from U.S. Trust, Bank of America, Private Wealth Management for the 2012 United Way Day of Caring. These energetic professionals came out from behind their desks and spent the day away from their offices giving back to the community for the United Way of King County’s largest Day of Caring event ever. A total of 12, 122 volunteers participated from 138 different companies, completing a total of 448 projects. These generous individuals gave 59, 737 hours of labor, donating $1.3 million in services to nonprofit agencies across the county in a single day.
Byrd Barr Place’s fantastic group pushed up their sleeves and got down to business–washing windows, polishing banisters, catching cobwebs, wiping down walls, and banishing dust bunnies. Not only are these men and women banking professionals, they are also professional cleaners, giving Byrd Barr Place’s historic fire house a badly needed going-over.
Thank you U.S. Trust, Bank of America, Private Wealth Management for all of your efforts!
