W&A Engineering Announces 2019 Charities of Choice:
Boys & Girls Club of Athens and Rebuilding Together Nashville
Athens, Georgia – In honor of the firm’s 20th anniversary and the launch of a new corporate citizenship initiative, W&A Engineering has named the Boys & Girls Club of Athens as its 2019 Charity of Choice in Athens. Rebuilding Together Nashville was chosen as the Charity of Choice for the firm’s newly opened Tennessee office. W&A will donate a total of $3,500 to these organizations on behalf of its clients, in lieu of holiday gifts, and make an additional firm donation of $8,000 as part of this initiative. W&A Engineering is also committing to year-long volunteer partnerships with these organizations to ensure meaningful and sustainable support throughout 2019.

“Over the past 19 years, W&A’s philanthropic efforts have taken many forms. As we approach our 20th anniversary, we are committed to building on this history and increasing these efforts,” said CEO/Partner Jon Williams. “We’re focused on making W&A Engineering the best possible company for our employees, and not just a great place to work but also a great place to serve.”
W&A’s corporate citizenship initiative, W&A Cares , is part of an ambitious effort to formalize and increase the firm’s commitment to “Building Better Communities” through service and financial support in five focus areas: Community, Economic Development, Education, Employee Well-Being, and Sustainability. To launch W&A Cares, employees in both offices were asked to select a Charity of Choice they felt most reflected W&A’s focus and mission while creating the greatest good in the community. Employees will focus volunteer efforts on the Charity of Choice throughout the year while continuing to support the many other organizations that have benefited from firm-wide and individual efforts in past years.
