Each year, Community Day gives Forest City associates a paid day to provide
much-needed support for more than 50 agencies and charitable organizations
nationwide that provide critically needed services in our local communities.
In the Cleveland area, Forest City associates will volunteer at several
non-profit and community service organizations, including Bellefaire JCB, one
of the nation's largest and most-experienced child welfare organizations. In
addition, associates will help organizers prepare for the National Senior
Games, which is expected to be the largest visitor event in Cleveland this

participating, giving their time to a wide range of organizations, including
The Rocky Mt. National Wildlife Refuge (Denver), Habitat for Humanity (Los
Angeles) and Yachad's Neighbor to Neighbor to Neighbor program (Washington,
D.C). In addition, Forest City's New York office, Forest City Ratner
Companies, celebrated Community Day early on June 20 by partnering with
KaBoom! and local community groups to build a 2,500-square-foot playground
from scratch in less than eight hours in Brooklyn.
"As we celebrate our 10th Community Day, we remain committed as ever to living
out our core values and coming together as an organization to serve our
communities," LaRue said. "We believe in proactive community involvement and
giving back in a way that helps to enhance the vitality of the cities and
neighborhoods in which we operate and call home."
