Building the charitable spirit into the company's business model was an obvious choice.
Signal Hill, CA (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
Mark Grisafe, owner of M. Grisafe Architects, received the Chai Award for Outstanding Voluntary Service from the Alpert Jewish Community Center of Long Beach, Ca. The Alpert Jewish Community Center presented the volunteer service award to Mr. Grisafe on September 7, 2014, at a community-wide meeting brunch. Members of the M Grisafe Architects team, volunteers and staff, and residents of the Long Beach community attended the annual event at the center.
The more than 2,300 member Alpert Jewish Community Center (AJCC) offers programs and services for individuals of all faiths throughout Long Beach. Grisafe has volunteered his architectural expertise at the AJCC for the past several years.
Grisafe's work at the AJCC includes small construction projects and serving as the architectural resource for the AJCC's Facilities Task Force. In this capacity, the AJCC recognizes Mr. Grisafe as instrumental to a number of the AJCC's recent and upcoming architectural improvement projects.
For Grisafe, who points to his family as having instilled in him a tradition of community service, the Chai Award for Outstanding Voluntary Service is an honor, "but the real reward is having had the opportunity to meet so many good people." On the connection between community service and building a successful small business, Grisafe says, "building the charitable spirit into the company's business model was an obvious choice."
News of the award and its connection to the work and mission of M Grisafe Architects was first reported on the company blog and has received a large and enthusiastic response from the company’s clients, contacts, friends and members of the community online via social media and offline.
