Since the inception of their company, the principals of Pembroke Commercial Realty have always believed in the importance of giving back to the community.They have been very active in many charitable organizations and Pembroke’s employees have also joined in their advocacy by participating in the United Way of Hampton Roads, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, Habitat for Humanity of South Hampton Roads and the Semper Fi Fund.
Thank you to those employees who recently participated in our first build day at a Habitat community!
Habitat for Humanity of South Hampton Roads engages the community in building opportunities for qualified families to achieve independence and stability through purchasing an affordable home. They serve all seven geographical entities that comprise South Hampton Roads: Chesapeake, Isle of Wight, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Smithfield, Suffolk and Virginia Beach.
Pembroke and its employees have been contributors to the United Way for close to 50 years.
Pembroke employees have been supporting the Semper Fi Fund through a monthly voluntary contribution to a "Jean's Day" fund. Employees can wear jeans to the office one day a month for their participation.
"The Semper Fi Fund was created by a group of Marine Corps spouses in early 2004, and those same women run the Fund today alongside other spouses from all service branches and retired service members, all of whom intimately know the needs of our military families. We have been by our injured and ill service members' sides from day one, helping them as they navigate lengthy recoveries and rejoin their communities."
Pembroke’s employees have volunteered at the Foodbank’s Norfolk distribution location and sponsor food drives in the office for the Foodbank annually. Pembroke Mall hosts one of the largest food drives in the area at Thanksgiving. The Foodbank has also been a past recipient of money raised through Pembroke's "Jean's Day" fund.
