Advocating for Others Through Compassion and Commitment
CONNECTED WITH OUR COMMUNITY
Helping those who need help is a core value of our company and one which we take very seriously. As a business, and as individuals, we feel a responsibility to support our community.
Our involvement has ranged from staff volunteering on weekends to build homes for Habitat for Humanity to walking for a cure for breast cancer, biking for diabetes and participating on various Boards of local and national organizations.
We have dedicated ourselves to organizations such as:
The William S. Baer School, located in Baltimore City, has served children with disabilities for over 75 years. We have seen firsthand, the immense need for community support in providing every opportunity possible to these very deserving and courageous children. With students ranging in age from 3 to 21 years, their education and care goes far beyond traditional academics. The needs of the students at Baer School cover an overwhelming, and highly individualized, range from medical care to dietary requirements; exercise to calming; learning life skills and skills we all take for granted – such as being able to climb stairs or feed oneself; and everything imaginable in between. It is with dedication, caring and love that the teachers and staff at Baer School give their children the opportunities and tools they need to “defy the odds”.
As some of you may already know, Waverly has a history with The Baer School; from Ed Audy serving on the Board, staff members volunteering for events, and completing needed renovations to their facility. Not to mention a relationship with the President of Baer School’s Partnership Board that spans decades.
A 501c3 organization established in 1994, The William S. Baer School Partnership Board’s mission is to raise additional funds to support the special needs of Baer’s students and to secure volunteers for the school. All money raised by the Partnership Board goes directly to meeting the needs of the children and staff.
We are looking forward to working with The Baer School, the Partnership Board, our colleagues and friends to provide much needed support to The Baer Family!
