SHARING in Charlotte

McAdams SHARES, our charitable outreach initiative, was created for McAdams employees to give back to the communities in which we live and work. McAdams’ Charlotte office feels strongly about supporting our Urban Ministries Center. Urban Ministries helps Charlotte’s most vulnerable homeless neighbors by providing lunch seven days a week, to approximately 400 -500 homeless people. They also offer other basic services such as showers, laundry facilities, and support groups.

Accompanied with the company’s monetary donation, employees in the Charlotte office have volunteered by serving drinks during the lunch hour as well as baking cookies and handing the treats out during the holidays. David Malcolm, Principal Landscape Architect, stated after the first volunteer opportunity, “This was a heartwarming, eye opening event and I look forward to serving here again soon.”

We look forward too many more opportunities this year to support Urban Ministries Center, including a frame drive to help support their art department.
