Here at Two Chicks and a Hammer doing good work is important to us. Not only do we try to add value to these neighborhoods by building beautiful homes that bring in new neighbors, but we also try to give back to the community that was here long before us.
We have a soft spot for kids and dogs, but at the end of the day the community is what matters the most to us. In the spirit of doing good we created a Do Good calendar where once a month we get involved, give back or volunteer our time to local community initiatives. Scroll through here to see some of our most recent work!
Rolls-Royce’s second annual Community Care Week is a week long project where all Rolls-Royce employees are given the opportunity to give back to the Indianapolis community with their time and talent. Two Chicks and a Hammer was invited to speak at the kick off and participate in the volunteer opportunities.
FREEDOM FOR A DAY
Two Chicks and a Hammer spent their day working with IACS and their Freedom for a Day program. Three groups of 2CH employees all took one dog out to help it get adjusted to walking on a leash, interacting with people to get them comfortable with strangers, and let them have a fun day out of the shelter. We managed to get one of the three dogs adopted while out on their day of freedom!
IMPD - HORSE DONATION
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s Mounted Patrol has grown thanks to The Two Chicks Team. Karen and Mina made a donation of two new horses, 5-year-old Axel and 7-year-old Abel. They’re brothers from a farm in Ohio. The Two Chicks Team wanted to do something good for the city while also getting involved with the horses.
SCHOOL 31 TOY DRIVE
Here at Two Chicks we believe the holiday's should be a happy time with lots to celebrate. When School 31 said they needed help filling their Holiday Shop with items for families to come choose from how could we say no? With the help from our community we were able to raise over $800 that in return provided food and presents for 6 of our neighborhood families.
Two Chicks and a Hammer sits on a community council with all of the local organizations in our community. We all got together to figure out how we can better support the schools in our area. Through a corporate sponsorship with Dicks Sporting Goods, we were able to donate kickballs and jumprops to School 31 and Sense Charter School
BATES -HENDRICKS NEIGHBORHOOD SIGN
Two Chicks and a Hammer worked with the local neighborhood association to clean up a part of Bates-Hendricks and build a sign that would welcome people into the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood.
CAMP TO BELONG
Because Mina has experience fostering children, Two Chicks and a Hammer felt passionate about donating to an incredible cause like Camp to Belong. Camp to Belong reunites siblings who are separated in foster care for a week through a fun camp environment.
REASON TO DANCE
Reason to Dance, Reason for Hope is a ballroom dance competition modeled after the popular “Dancing with the Stars” television show. Local celebrities will be paired with professional dance instructors, from local ballroom dance studios, to learn and refine a ballroom and freestyle dance routine. The celebrities will then compete at an elegant event, being held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom, to win one of several awards. Every year, Two Chicks and a Hammer makes efforts to support Reason to Dance in a multitude of ways. In addition to buying a table every year, many Two Chicks and a Hammer employees have participated in the event through dancing. Both Tad and Karen won a variety of awards through dancing.
