Commercial real estate pros under the banner of AIR and American Construction Management & Engineering, led by AIR COO Joy De La Cruz and ACME principal Carol Jones, participated in "Operation Gratitude" at the National Guard Armory in Van Nuys. McKenna Long & Aldridge's Chuck Pomeroy, Gregory Batts, and NAI Capital Commercial's Glenn Melnick joined some 500 volunteers in preparing care packages destined for active and retired military personnel.
In assembly line fashion, the volunteers helped fill and address 5,423 Postal Service boxes containing an array of goodies (food, hygiene products, entertainment and handmade items).
Taking a break from the assembly line: Delphi Business Properties' David Hoffberg, TOLD Partners' Jack Mikail, Delphi's Teresa Ernest and Jack's wife, Janet. The care packages also included letters of support addressed to individual servicemen and women, vets, Wounded Warriors and their care givers.
