If you were to log on to the TSK website right now and go under the About menu, you would see a section called Culture of Service. Go ahead, I can wait. See, it’s there. But what does it mean? Let’s be real, just about every company website has a culture section. But what is the difference between theirs and ours, you might ask? At TSK it is service that drives the culture. It is reflected in all aspects of how we do business and interact with each other, our clients, consultants, and the communities we live in. You can ask just about anyone who works for TSK what they're passionate about, and service will either be number one, or close to it.
One of the most important aspects of this culture of service is how we give back to our communities. We all know how privileged we are to work for a company like TSK, and so we are driven to help people who might not be as fortunate. Our Community Action Committee meets once a month to discuss where our time and money can have the most impact. We try to have at least one volunteer or donation drive opportunity monthly across all our offices. Some individuals do even more than that on their own. Recently we have helped some great organizations.
Our Reno/Tahoe office volunteered for the Mobile Harvest organized by the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. The Mobile Harvest program is a direct service program that allows for distribution of perishable foods such as fresh produce, bread, and dairy into high-need neighborhoods. Volunteers at their Mobile Harvest distributions assist Food Bank staff with handing out food items to clients, as well as setting up and tearing down the mobile distribution site.

On April 22nd, Melanie Bailey (aka- “TSK Maryland”) volunteered at the shave ice booth at the End Hunger bike race. End Hunger in Calvert County is an organization dedicated to helping those in situations of food scarcity. Together with their donors, volunteers, and partners, they develop big-picture solutions to support lasting change for the people they serve.

On April 26th, the Henderson office volunteered with Hope for the City, helping at their drive-thru food bank. Hope for the City has launched drive-thru food pantries all over Las Vegas to feed hungry families and individuals who have experienced economic hardship. They care for the needs of the elderly and immunocompromised by picking up and delivering their groceries and other supplies, as needed. And they offer emotional support through their 24-hour hotline. For more information on this organization: https://hopeforthecity.org/
In May, our Los Angeles office will be volunteering with the Long Beach Rescue Mission. Since 1972, Long Beach Rescue Mission has opened its doors to thousands of men, women, and children. The Mission provides food, clothing, shelter, and spiritual guidance to the homeless and less fortunate people of the community. Long Beach Rescue Mission is comprised of two facilities. The Samaritan House serves as a home for men while Lydia House offers a safe haven for women and their children. For more information on this organization: https://lbrm.org/
These are just four of the many organizations that TSK has helped or will be helping. At the end of the day, it is a small way that we at TSK can share some of our good fortune.
