CF Evans creates communities. We create them physically; building homes where people can live and grow. We create them with others; treating everyone like they are part of our family. We believe in giving back to the communities we build in and helping them grow. Our Charitable Giving Committee helps to focus our efforts by ensuring all giving is centered around the idea of creating communities.
CF Evans is proud to once again sponsor the build of a house by Edisto Habitat for Humanity in Orangeburg, SC. Our employees are committing two mid week volunteer days to help out in addition to weekend builds. We look forward to attending the dedication and meeting the wonderful family who will be moving in!
In the spring of 2018 the committee decided to support the build of a house by Edisto Habitat for Humanity in Orangeburg, SC. We provided volunteers, raised money for the build, and donated building materials. CF Evans is thrilled to support an organization that is enhancing the lives of families right here in our backyard.
In the fall of 2018, the Charitable Giving Committee chose to support Team Rubicon, a disaster response veterans service organization. Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams. We were drawn to Team Rubicon because of their commitment to rebuilding communities after disasters and to supporting veterans as they transition from military to civilian life.
We also chose to donate to the repair of a cottage on the campus of the Carolina Youth Development Center. When children arrive at the Center, they often have nothing more than the clothes on their back. The staff greet the children warmly, provide them with a place to sleep and necessities like warm bedding, clothing for school, toiletries, and even a few things to bring comfort, like a teddy bear. These necessities are often provided through in-kind community donations and are stored in a cottage on the campus. It is often one of the first places a child sees when they arrive on campus and it needed extensive repairs. Our donation went specifically to help fix the building and provide a more welcoming first impression.
We also supported, among others, the following organizations:
- Make a Wish Foundation
- Center for Women
- Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston 1st Annual Plane Pull
- Charleston Chamber of Commerce Build-a-Shed
- Push Up and Up
- Swim Jam
