HOK’s St. Louis Office Raises Over $37,000 for United Way
HOK’s St. Louis practice recently completed its annual week-long campaign to raise money for United Way of Greater St. Louis.
Exceeding their $28,000 goal by more than 30 percent, HOK’s employees contributed $37,303 to United Way.
“HOK has contributed to the success of United Way of Greater St. Louis over the last 15 years,” said Orvin Kimbrough, president and CEO of the local affiliate. “We appreciate the continued support and consistent generosity of the employees who help so many people through their annual campaigns.”
With a theme of “HOK Office Olympics,” this year’s campaign in HOK’s office at 10 South Broadway included luncheons, a silent auction, grand prize raffles, and daily games and giveaways. Employees came together for an international lunch buffet and an ice cream social, with all proceeds benefitting United Way.
“Giving back to the communities in which we live and work has always been a core value for HOK,” said Eli Hoisington, AIA, design principal in St. Louis. “One in three people living in our community receives help through United Way’s agencies and programs. We believe that contributing to United Way is the best way to support a wide variety of essential health and human service needs across our region. I’m incredibly proud and humbled by the generosity of our people.”
