Community Outreach

The Chapter is committed to serving the community through Community Outreach!

Our Chapter seeks to develop relationships with local non-profit organizations to donate services and expertise. Chapter members can provide short-term volunteering service opportunities in areas related to Facilities Management (FM), while networking with other FM professionals. A helping hand is always welcome!

IFMA Chesapeake Members Volunteer at 
Happy Helpers for the Homeless

Several chapter members spent Saturday afternoon on March 20 wrapping presents with Happy Helpers for the Homeless in preparation for the charity’s 28th Annual Birthday Party for the Homeless. The outdoor event is always a festive occasion, providing an opportunity to celebrate, even if attendees don’t know when their real birthday is. IFMA has supported Happy Helpers during the past three Christmas seasons, and we look forward to returning for other events.

Happy Helpers for the Homeless Award

Executive Director Bobbi Coffman presented an award to IFMA Chesapeake in recognition of the chapter’s partnership with Happy Helpers for the Homeless for three years. The Chapter has provided a check each year, funded by proceeds from the golf outing, and large quantities of toys have been donated by the members.

Bobbi and her team do phenomenal work in the community, providing food and clothing year-round, and toys for children at Christmas, and the Chapter is proud to support their efforts. www.happyhelpersforthehomeless.com
