Forest City celebrates 13th annual Community Day

The theme for Forest City’s 2016 event is “growing together,” which signifies the impact of associates’ efforts in building upon the company’s workplace culture and local community partnerships.

“Community Day is an opportunity for our Forest City associates to grow together and demonstrate our shared commitment to our core values, including community involvement and giving back,” saidDavid J. LaRue, Forest City president and chief executive officer.

Each year, associates at Forest City’s regional offices and properties across the country select local organizations to serve on Community Day and then coordinate with those organizations to identify their needs. Efforts are guided by associates who serve as site organizers, working with the agencies and local vendors to ensure the projects are a success.

“Community Day is our signature associate event of the year,” saidJeff Linton, senior vice president of corporate communication and community relations for Forest City and this year’s Community Day executive sponsor. “Helping to improve our communities and working together as a team goes hand-in-hand with our company’s dedication to creating exceptional places where people live, work and shop.”
