On July 16, 2012 Gilbert Associates turned off the lights, locked the doors at the firm and sent our employees out into the community. At the seventh annual Community Service Day, teams served at three local nonprofits: Sacramento Food Bank, Sacramento Tree Foundation and St. John’s Women’s Shelter. At the Sacramento Food Bank, Gilbert staffers assisted in the emergency food and clothing programs by sorting and distributing donations. The team at the Sacramento Tree Foundation planted trees and assisted with irrigation. The group helping at St. John’s Women’s Shelter assisted in the kitchen and children’s room.
