Supporting Our Military
In 2011 Case served as the general contractor on a new home built in Frederick, MD for a severely injured U.S. Marine veteran through Homes for our Troops. Founded in 2004, Homes for Our Troops is a national non-profit organization that assists veterans and their families by collecting donations of money, building materials and professional labor, as well as coordinates the process of building a specially adapted home, free of cost, to the veteran and his or her family.
This year, Case employees laid wreaths in Arlington National Cemetery as part of Wreaths Across America Day.
Assisting Homeless Families
Since 2009 Case has partnered with Homestretch, a Falls Church-based organization, to transform approximately 19 units by rehabilitating their kitchens. The mission of Homestretch is to empower homeless families to attain permanent housing and self-sufficiency. Since 1990 Homestretch has helped over 1,000 families.
Case employees have also volunteered their time assisting Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN) by serving dinner and preparing bagged lunches. A-SPAN’s mission is to secure permanent housing and provide life-sustaining services for Arlington’s most vulnerable individuals. To date, employees have logged over 150 man hours supporting A-SPAN.
For the past six years Case has participated in the DC Design House benefiting Children’s National Health Systems. To date, the DC Design House has raised over $1.78 million dollars and is a leading annual fundraiser event for Children’s National.
In December, Case employees host a toy drive at our DC office supporting Horton’s Kids’ annual holiday program, Xmas Shop. Horton’s Kids empowers children growing up in one of DC’s most violent, under-resourced communities to graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life. They serve 500 children in grades K-12 living in Wellington Park, a neighborhood where 80 percent of adults don’t have a high school diploma and the average annual household income is less than $10,000. Sign up for a CaseStudy™ by December 31st, 2017 and Case will donate $100 to Horton’s Kids
Other ways Case has given back to area children include: hosting a food drive for Children’s Inn at NIH, building and donating twenty-five bicycles to children in the Homestretch program for the holidays, donating over 1,000 books to the Payne Elementary School library, and filling and donating over 250 backpacks with school supplies to the children of Payne Elementary School.
Hurricane Relief Efforts
Case employees took up a collection to help those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, raising over $8,600. The donations were split between the Houston Food Bank in Texas and Direct Relief International in Puerto Rico. Both organizations pledged 100 percent of donations to go to disaster relief.
Case Scholarship Fund
For nearly 20 years, Case has been awarding scholarship money to the children of Case team members who are entering their freshman year in college. Since its inception, Case has awarded more than 80 scholarships and over $40,000 to the recipients.
