The 24th Annual Event Will Provide Home-Delivered Gift Bags for Children in Need This Year
Herman Miller (NASDAQ: MLHR) is excited to join forces with the architecture and design community throughout December to host a re-imagined “We Care,” an annual event series that benefits children from Boys & Girls Club chapters across North America.
To safely celebrate this year, the company is partnering with design industry leaders to provide home-delivered gift bags for kids filled with craft supplies, snacks, and cold weather gear. The kits will be distributed with help from the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
“With COVID-19 hampering our ability to hold the traditional event where participants were able to come together, it was rewarding to see that we can pull off We Care in a new way for 2020,” said Peggy Michmershuizen, co-manager of We Care. “I hope that we can make the holiday season a little extra special for the children and their families.”
Traditional We Care events included in-person gatherings at Boys and Girls Club chapters and community centers, where volunteers helped kids make gifts for loved ones and celebrate the holiday season. Last year, volunteers from Herman Miller and its family of brands, 46 Herman Miller dealerships, and 330 architecture and design firms in 31 cities celebrated We Care, impacting nearly 7,000 children.
