- Camp Twin Lakes
- Green Team – Piedmont
- Paws Atlanta

“Summer of Service provides an opportunity for employees to volunteer in a group setting. This approach is a win/win for our people and the charities we support,” notes Hodges-Mace Chief Human Resources Officer, Suzanne Hough. “It also allows our employees to get to know one another outside of the office, which fosters teamwork and a sense of belonging.”
Hodges-Mace employees are fiercely dedicated to serving clients and supporting each other in a collaborative work environment. The company values serving the local community and encourages volunteerism through projects like Summer of Service. In addition, each year Hodges-Mace offers two days of paid time off to employees to volunteer at a charity of their choosing.
