Giving Back

We have combined our time, talents, money and labor with those of our staff, our friends and our clients to support some local non profit groups.  These collaborative efforts have allowed us to share our voices and work as a team for greater impact.  The extra benefit has been a really good time!

We have chosen to focus our efforts on local groups where our efforts can impact our local community.

Helping Hands – (through IREM-OC)
www.iremoc.org

Each year, IREM-OC chooses an organization to support through its philanthropic “Helping Hands” program.

2016-2017: Our current project is an ambitious 2-year renovation of Oso Lake Campgrounds, a facility operated by Boy Scouts of America (BSA). This campground has served thousands of scouts over the years but is in desperate need of major renovations and improvements.

2015: The chapter completely renovated Miracle Manor, a home for families of children facing life threatening illnesses. The combined force of IREM – Orange County and it’s Friends program did a complete renovation of the facility.

The chapter replaced staircases, renovated play areas, landscaped the grounds, created a child friendly garden, painted the facility inside and out and expanded and repaved the parking lots.

Valencia High School Tiger Regiment

This local high school serves a struggling segment of Orange County’s population.  In spite of financial hardship, this school has an award winning music program.  With support from our clients, we were pleased to have been able to give the “gift of music” and provide the jazz program with funds to purchase instruments and music for its students.
