Stantec in the Community Day 2016

On September 21, 2016, almost a third of our employees volunteered for our fourth annual Stantec in the Community Day. That’s 8,000 people supporting our communities by cleaning up beaches, upgrading arts centers, sorting donations, flipping burgers, and more.

Local Stantec employees including engineers, environmental scientists, and designers, enjoyed the camaraderie and serving the community while removing trash and enhancing the beauty of the waterfront and parks.

“The Alexandria waterfront is a centerpiece of the community and we’re excited to partner with the City to maintain and enhance the area,” said Jeff Lohr, PE, a Senior Associate with Stantec in Fairfax.

The DC Metro offices combined efforts with a very successful blood drive organized through Inova. Inova Blood Donor Services supplies lifesaving blood and blood products to 24 different hospitals in Northern Virginia and the Washington, DC, metro area. They also work with national and international redistribution organizations to get blood where it's needed most.

The blood drive collected 21 productive units which means 63 lives can be potentially saved!

For the past seven years, Jim and Beth Tuesburg have volunteered at the Manna Roanoke Food Bank. Jim and Beth both work in our Roanoke, Virginia office and felt that it was a natural fit for Community Day.

With three additional helpers, the Roanoke team sorted food – a bigger job than it seems. Each donated item needs to be inspected and the expiration dates checked to meet federal guidelines since the bank receives some funding from the USDA.

On a weekly basis, the foodbank supplies 220 food boxes for families in the Roanoke area. Each box contains the basic staples of canned goods, pasta, and cereal. The foodbank is generally able to add meat and other frozen foods as well as fresh produce and baked goods. 

More than 50 employees got to work spreading about 200 yards of mulch and lending a hand with some minor maintenance.

Local Stantec employees, including engineers, environmental scientists, and designers, enjoyed the camaraderie and serving the community while adding to the park’s beauty and functionality.

“James City County is home to many of our employees and Mid-County Park is a favorite family destination,” said Travis Crayosky, a principal with Stantec in Williamsburg.
