“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” This inspirational quote from Helen Keller has been a guiding principle at Synergy Design & Construction since the company was founded over 10 years ago.
It has been important from the very beginning to grow our impact within our local community — especially to those in need — just as much as growing the Company. That’s why it is such an honor to be recognized for this commitment as a 2019 Best of Reston Honoree!
Best of Reston recognizes the contributions of individuals, businesses, civic and community institutions and organizations who demonstrate significant contributions to the greater Reston/Herndon area through their philanthropy and volunteerism. So, this month, rather than feature one of our remodels, we are celebrating our Community and our Team.
Beyond the sticks and bricks of beautiful remodels, there is an underlying dedication at Synergy to give back to others.
Our team members show their commitment every day from working on housing repairs at Cornerstones transitional housing, helping make the holidays special at the Embry Rucker Community Center, mentoring and participating in the Special Olympics Virginia, donating to ReStore, leading Girl Scout Troops, running an arts program at a local elementary school to our recent participation in Walk MS Reston… and much, much more!
Inspired to volunteer? Here are more ways to get involved in our community:
- Cornerstones offers year round volunteer opportunities
- Reston Community Center has a number of needs throughout the year
- You don’t need Marie Kondo to have a clear out. Green Drop will pick donations up right from your front door
- Volunteer Reston offers teen volunteer youth/family groups opportunities for middle and high schoolers
- All about the arts? Greater Reston Arts Center needs volunteers of the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival in May
- Help make someone’s day brighter at Reston Hospital Center by delivering flowers, helping at the Information Desk or visiting with patients
- Give nature a helping hand from bird box monitoring to wildlife counts to Earth Day projects at the Walker Nature Center
