Baird Trust Gives Back in 2021
Baird Trust supports a wide range of organizations, focusing on groups that our associates devote their time to in order to maximize their impact. Over the recent holidays, we worked with three organizations that help strengthen the communities we live in.
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.
Afghan Family Refugees
Baird Trust associates collected and sorted donations from members of the Patriot group – Baird’s Associate Resource Group devoted to supporting our nation’s veterans and their allies – for Afghan family refugees staying at Camp Atterbury in Indiana.
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.
Giving back to the communities we live and work in has always been an important part of our role here at Baird Trust.
