On Wednesday, July 17th, more than 50 Forest City associates volunteered at New Avenues as part of their Annual Community Day. This was Forest City’s 8th Community Day with New Avenues.

Forest City created Community Day in 2004 as an initiative that allows associates to volunteer their time and skills to local community organizations and to exhibit the company’s strong belief in its Core Values, such as community involvement, teamwork and performance ethic.


In addition to volunteers, Forest City provides supplies and materials. Due to the impact of continued budget cuts at the Federal, State and local levels on New Avenues, Forest City volunteers helped with “wish list” projects such as: cleaning and organizing of the eight bay garages, re-seeding numerous areas, creating a new walk/wheelchair friendly path to the gazebo, painting in the gym and reception area, and renovating the Music Therapy office. Additionally, a large group of volunteers worked with individuals in our Day Services program on arts and crafts projects.
