An Effort Heard around the World

Firm-wide Community Service Challenge

Over the span of a year, HOK’s people joined together to create a positive impact in cities across the world.

For this global community service initiative, each office coordinated a service project that provided thousands of hours of manpower for charitable organizations in each city where HOK has an office. Some of these projects included:

Atlanta: Redesign of a community park in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood

Hong Kong: Restoration of Yim Tin Tsai island in the Sai Kung District

Houston: Landscaping/replanting of trees for the Hermann Park Conservancy

Toronto: Toy fundraising support for the Teresa Group, an organization for children and families affected by HIV and AIDS

Washington, DC: Renovation of Jan’s Tutoring House, an after-school tutoring program for underprivileged students
