This past MLK Day, our entire staff had the opportunity to step away from the whir of the office for an afternoon and offer a couple of small acts of service. Knowing our abilities to carry out these tasks were likely to improve with full stomachs, the first stop was lunch at Greenville’s renowned Tommy’s Country Ham House. Just across the Ham House parking lot, an equally lauded Greenville institution, Triune Mercy Center, has been nourishing the physical and spiritual needs of our city for years. Assigned duties fitting for a group of designers whose vocation prescribes order and material integrity in the built environment, we took time to organize Triune’s expansive food pantry and repair dozens of pew hymnal racks in the Center’s turn of the century chapel.
Our hope is that these and similar undertakings in addition to our established approach to design integrity demonstrate our firm’s collective concern for our community and spur on further such deeds in and out of the office.
Triune Mercy Center is a much-needed resource in our community; working alongside the homeless population in Greenville, SC they offer hot meals, laundry, groceries, medical aid, access to art making, counseling and rehabilitation with the help of numerous community partners.
