B:CIVIC Founding Member Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP (DGS) celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, and they’ve announced that the milestone calls for 365 days of good! The company has dubbed 2015 the “Year of 100 Good Deeds” (Y100) and its team is completing a wide array of projects that benefit the community. These projects were nominated by DGS attorneys and staff, ensuring a strong level of interest and engagement with the efforts.

“Service to the community is one of the firm’s core values,” said Kenzo Kawanabe, chair of the Y100 Committee, in a press release. “It was a standard set by the founding partners at the firm – and it is a standard that our attorneys and staff strive to continue today with pro bono legal services, community board memberships, volunteer projects, and civic involvement.”

Level 3 Cares

B:CIVIC Founding Member Level 3 Communications sets an example in Colorado and across the country with its community involvement efforts. Through its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, Level 3 Cares, the company strives to connect its volunteers to an organization that meets their volunteer expectations, while ensuring their valuable time L3supports local communities in creative and rewarding ways.

Level 3 strongly encourages teams to volunteer together as a way to strengthen team camaraderie and foster a culture of giving back. One of Level 3’s signature volunteer programs, Everyone Deserves a Cookie, was designed to fill a gap identified by the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless. Level 3 volunteers go into their kitchen and personally make desserts the shelter’s guests can enjoy that evening. Since the launch of this program in May, Level 3 has sent nine small groups to volunteer their time and bake cookies, serving approximately 1,800 people.

This program not only provides a bit of home-baked goodness to the shelter’s guests, but also provides Level 3 volunteers a tangible way to do good.
