RETTEW donated its $1,000 prize from a team spirit community contest to PublicARTWORKS, a nonprofit dedicated to expanding public art opportunities.
$4,765 raised for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. RETTEW's team of 10 walked continually during the overnight fundraiser.
RETTEW staff helped clean up the Bartram Trail near Landingville, PA, by picking up trash clearing brush, and clearing graffiti.
RETTEW’s dedication to improving quality of life goes beyond the projects we work on and the clients we serve. We also believe that we have a social responsibility to help enrich the human spirit. We take that responsibility very seriously and provide many opportunities for our employees to get involved and give back through community support.
Each of our offices has partnered with local nonprofits and charities to help benefit their communities. Some focus on providing educational resources for children. Others meet the nutritional and home supply needs of families. Still others help to raise funds for cancer research and other worthy causes. Beyond our firm’s collective efforts, we’re proud to invest in our many individual employees who regularly support community causes they are passionate about.
These partnerships unfold in many ways. RETTEW is committed to donating corporately from company revenues as well as through the RETTEW Charitable Foundation, which provides assistance to organizations in which our employees are personally involved. Employees also contribute financially to the many endeavors. RETTEW encourages employees to volunteer their time, whether through planning and coordinating fundraisers, visiting local charities to provide hands-on help, or delivering needed supplies.
These efforts take our tagline of “We answer to you” to a higher level. As an engineering firm, we answer to our clients. As a company, we answer to our employees. But at the end of the day, as a business operating in five states, we ultimately answer to our communities. These are more than corporate decisions; they are responsibilities, passions, and callings of community support.
