An enthusiastic team of 12 Avison Young Tampa employees embarked on a 3 hour mission to work in the organization’s food pantry and clothing store at its main campus on N. Florida Avenue. Everyone commented on how humbling an experience it was, and all participants expressed how good they felt after being a part of this year’s Day of Giving events.
