Report
to the
Community

To our friends and our communities,

Despite 2021 not quite turning out the way we had planned, we were still able to help many organizations refocus on their missions and the work they do strengthening our communities.

Creating opportunities to give back our time, treasure, and talent is essential to our beliefs, and every chance to volunteer for a good cause is another way to Think as Many, Walk in Their World, Work Brave, Wonder and Wander, Build Trust and Own It and Act on It. Each of these beliefs is what makes Padilla great, and we strive to pass that on through our community work.

We hope you enjoy reading just a little bit about these marvelous organizations and that it spurs your curiosity to learn even more about them. They’ve inspired us, and we know their purpose will inspire you.

Thank you for taking the time. It means a lot to all of us at Padilla.
