Baird Trust Gives Back

Baird Trust supports a wide range of organizations, focusing on groups that our associates devote their time to in order to maximize their impact.

Local Organizations Served

Home of the Innocents

Since 1880, Louisville’s Home of the Innocents has provided shelter for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned. In October, volunteers from Baird Trust sorted and organized items that had been donated to the Home during Baird Gives Back week, then prepared and decorated Christmas trees for the holiday season.

Evansville's Mesker Park Zoo

The Baird Trust team helped to finish the penguin exhibit at the zoo, painting a fence and hauling rock for the area around the exhibit, and even got to watch the penguins arrive at their new home.

Make-A-Wish Walk

Baird Trust volunteers were stationed near the entrance and within the park grounds, helping out and fielding questions from walkers. They had various tasks to perform, including: guiding walkers to registration tables, helping to hand out shirts and MAW giveaways (toys, bracelets), helping with kids' activity stations, encouraging walkers along the path, and handing out water. At the end of the walk, they handed out snacks.
