At Best & Company, we are mindful of the role “home” plays in shaping our lives.
That’s why we volunteer our time and talent to a number of important projects around the metropolitan New York area targeted at providing warm, safe, comfortable living environments for our neighbors in need.
For clients who’d like to join us in our efforts to help assure decent housing for our neighbors, we keep you posted on some of our most recent activities here on our Community page.
A WINNING TEAM
Recently, Best & Company had an opportunity to put our organizational skills to work for WIN, one of New York City’s largest nonprofit providers of housing, help, and hope for women and children in need of temporary and transitional shelter, job training, childcare, and the kinds of support families need to get back on their feet and live independently.
Thanks to the generosity of donors from around New York, one of WIN’s residences was brimming with a seasonal supply of warm coats and back-to-work clothes. But the women needed a better place than their cluttered common room to sort through things and try them on for size. That’s where we came in.
By designing and building a new selection room, try-on space, and overflow storage area to organize donated clothing formerly presented to residents in heaps, we hope to contribute in some small way in relieving a bit of chaos in our neighbors’ lives, and restore a sense of self-confidence and hope that is essential to making a fresh start.
We’ll keep you posted on the project’s progress. In the meantime, we hope you’ll want to learn more about WIN and the good work they have been doing for 30 years, here.
