BOSTON – CDM Smith supported two charities this quarter with funds raised by participants in the firm’s employee wellness program. Representatives from the Bottom Line and Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation each received $25,000 from CDM Smith Chief Executive Officer Tim Wall and Chief Human Resources Officer Carlos Echalar on August 29, 2018, at CDM Smith’s world headquarters.
Bottom Line helps low-income and first-generation-to-college students get to and through college. The program builds strong connections with students, providing them with individual support, and ensuring they have the guidance they need to persist and earn a college degree. Students receive personalized one-on-one guidance and mentoring, and they are supported from senior year of high school through college for up to 6 years.
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
