Polinger Cares

#PolingerCares 2017

As a part of our annual #PolingerCares company-wide volunteer initiative, the Polinger team tackled a big project at Raymond Education Campus in Washington, D.C., where we came together to paint the school and show off their school colors of green and yellow!

Proudly sporting our Polinger caps, leasing and maintenance teams from various communities were excited to come together for a day of giving back to the community.

Raymond Education Campus, or Charles W. Raymond Elementary School was constructed in two sections in 1924 and 1928, with alterations in 1964 when classrooms on the west side were added. The school was named in honor of Charles W. Raymond, who served as engineer commissioner from 1888 to 1890, and a U.S. Corps of Engineers member.

They strive to empower students to communicate effectively, solve problems independently, demonstrate effective leadership skills, and become responsible citizens in a global society. Their vision is to create an exemplary learning community, where students will acquire the necessary skills to attend college and succeed in our global society.

As an older school, understandably, they wanted a fresher look. The Polinger team jumped at the opportunity to help them achieve that while they work hard to shape the future success of our children.

Dedicated to yet another Polinger volunteer initiative, Mr. Polinger is so proud that his team of talented and hard-working individuals put in their time and effort to really transforming the hallways of this school for students, teachers, and staff to enjoy for years to come. 

We’re fortunate to have a team who cares so much about improving and giving back to the community, and having fun while doing it!

We can’t thank our team enough for volunteering and look forward to our next opportunity! Each of our communities really came together to give back to the community.
