wpg Encourages Giving Back Through Volunteer Time Off Benefit

As part of its wpg Cares program, wpg and its colleagues are committed to giving back to the communities where the company operates. To support that commitment, wpg offers all eligible colleagues 16 hours per year of paid Volunteer Time Off (VTO) to be used to volunteer with nonprofit organizations they care about in their own backyard.

This summer, wpg challenged every team to spend either a half or full day together, using at least four hours of VTO before the end of August. In response to this challenge, colleagues went out and gave back in many varied ways.

The team at Grand Central Mall in Vienna, West Virginia, participated in United Way’s Day of Action. This included hands-on outdoor landscaping work.

Property teams from The Mall at Johnson City and Paddock Mall helped out their local animal shelters.

The Human Resources and Communications team volunteered together packing food and hygiene kits for Lifeline Christian Mission. The kits will go to serve families in Haiti and around the world.

Members of the Property Management department completed a similar service project in coordination with the organization 9/11 Day. The team packed nearly 500 meals, along with thousands of others volunteers inside the Schottenstein Center on the campus of The Ohio State University. These meals were delivered to the Mid-Ohio Food Collective.

The Finance and Accounting team volunteered at several locations including Star House, central Ohio’s only drop-in center for youth who are experiencing homelessness. The wpg team worked together sorting, categorizing, folding and storing bins of donations.

These are just some of the exciting volunteer opportunities our colleagues experienced this summer. wpg is proud to support its colleagues giving back in our communities around the country. To learn more about how wpg gives back, visit our community page.
