This month Keith, Jacquie and Jane volunteered at the food pantry at the Marillac Social Center, where WJW recently completed a renovation and addition. The Marillac food pantry distributes food three times at week through a client-choice based model of operation, meaning that they empower clients to decide what is right nutritionally for them and their families. Keith, Jacquie, and Jane served as personal shoppers, assisting clients in selecting and bagging their food.
WJW actively seeks opportunities for staff to volunteer with organizations with whom we’ve worked with. These volunteer efforts offer us an chance not just to do positive work in our community, but also to better understand how the organizations we work with operate, how our completed projects are functioning, and how our design work can be innovated in the future.
