Dixon Hughes Goodman recognizes staff for community service
Top 20 Firm Dixon Hughes Goodman has announced the recipients of its 2019 Community IMPACT Awards, highlighting staff members and offices who have volunteered the most service hours during the 2019 fiscal year.
Erin Loder, a marketing associate at DHG's Norfolk, Virginia office, is the recipient of this year's Individual Award, with the DHG Norfolk office itself receiving the 2019 Market Award.
“From volunteering at food banks to participating in charity runs, to creating recycling programs in our offices, our people have an impact on our culture, our health, our local communities and the world in which we live,” said Pat Shuler, president of the DHG Foundation, in a statement. “Our commitment to the health and well-being of our people, our communities and our profession gives us all meaningful purpose, and it’s a part of who we are as one DHG.”
DHG Foundation president Pat Shuler recognized both award recipients at DHG’s annual partner meeting. Erin Loder and DHG Norfolk office managing partner Tom Hazelwood also received monetary donations to give to a nonprofit of their choice.
Loder primarily volunteers her time with military families through the USO and Blue Star Families Organization, an organization founded by military spouses to create mutual support.
DHG Norfolk volunteers with and supports organizations including the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, Union Mission Ministries, and United Way of South Hampton Roads.
