Community Partner Spotlight:
Siemens Corporation


Thank You for Brightening up our Client Areas!
Thank you to the team members from  Siemens who spent several days volunteering with UCM recently, focused on improving the client experience at the main office from the entry way through the food pantry. More than 50 Siemens engineers freshened up our main Fordson Road office with new paint! We also appreciate Jerry's Paint & Wallpaper Center for the generous inkind donation of paint and supplies.

We are also very excited about Siemens' donation of 11 big screen televisions that will enhance our children and youth educational programs!  Additional volunteer projects are in the works with Siemens team members, including at the UCM Early Learning Center with our youngest community members. 

We are grateful for the referral and assistance from Volunteer Alexandria to make these community service projects happen!  View photos of the team in action >
