Hobbs+Black has a long-standing tradition of supporting efforts that positively impact the local community, and has actively participated in the annual United Way Campaign since the 1960s. United Way of Washtenaw County occupied the first multi-story commercial building designed by Hobbs+Black and its current building, the United Way Center, was also designed by Hobbs+Black. Fun Fact: Thom Phillips and Betsy Wagner both worked on the project!
The United Way of Washtenaw County’s Annual Campaign provides the funding necessary to bring people and resources together to address the most pressing human service needs here in our community. These issues, like strengthening and supporting families, preparing children to be successful in school, and helping adults be self-sufficient and successful in the work place, are important to everyone. The United Way of Washtenaw County has been an invaluable asset to our local community for generations, and with the continued support, will be able to continue for many more generations to come.
Our support of the United Way of Washtenaw County is through corporate contributions, employee volunteerism, advocacy, and the extraordinary generosity of our employees. Hobbs+Black promotes participation through multiple activities and events from bake-offs and raffles, to jeans days. Each year, our goal and contributions surpass the previous years. Whether a team member gives a little or a lot, each contribution goes to work bringing change to our community. Together we can live united!
