With the holiday season in full force, you can't help but think about the most valuable sentiment of the season: giving back.
20 years ago, in partnership with local Boys & Girls Clubs across America, Herman Miller created a national event with the sole purpose of bringing all the best of the season to over 6,000 children in multiple cities in the United States. WeCare takes place every December with the help of over 200 of the best interior design firms in the country.
"We Care enables children to let their creativity shine by making holiday gifts for family, teachers, and friends at a variety of craft stations."

Members of the Quinn Evans Architects family joined many others in the interior design industry for a beautiful afternoon in Detroit. Each had chosen a small, easy craft to enjoy producing with the kids, who will later gift them to family members.
For me, the event is special because the children are so sweet and I really enjoy watching how happy they are to make something special for someone they love. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and being thanked by each child is a humbling experience. The children were so proud of their craft and one boy, when we complimented his project, told us with such pride that he was an “artist”.
Christmas can become such a busy time, this event allowed me to feel the connection to what [the holiday season] is truly about, spending time and caring for others. I can’t wait to participate next year.

The WeCare event resonates at a deeper level with the core values of our firm and our commitment to the community at large. This holiday season we encourage each and every one of you to take some time to bring cheer and joy to someone in need.
