May 21, 2011: BOMA Day Of Caring at DESC

Posted May 18th, 2011 / Industry News, Philanthropy

BOMA (Building Owners & Managers Association) is involved with DESC (Downtown Emergency Services Center) as its community outreach partner.  MacDonald-Miller is a Sustaining Partner with BOMA and over the past several years we have supported this ‘Day of Caring’ in the form of volunteer labor on various projects including the installation of a domestic HW boiler at one of their emergency shelters in downtown Seattle.  We also installed a donated split system HVAC unit for their computer room and control systems enhancements.  Thanks to Kelly King, Tim Hillegas and Bill Britain.

Please join a handful of MacDonald-Miller employees and help out on Saturday May 21st. If you are kind enough to participate please include “MacDonald-Miller’ along with your name when you reply to the email address in the details below:
