CLEVELAND - July 5, 2016 - On Friday, June 24, more than 650 associates of Forest City Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: FCEA and FCEB), participated in the company's 13th annual Community Day, a paid day of service benefitting non-profit organizations in many of the cities where the company has a presence. This year, associates from more than 65 Forest City locations came together to provide assistance to charities and agencies in their respective communities.

"I want to sincerely thank my fellow associates for their time, energy and talent in coming together for another great Community Day," said David J. LaRue, Forest City president and chief executive officer. "Once again, the combined efforts of everyone who participated is a reflection of the great work our associates do every day and a direct demonstration of our core values." 

The theme for this year's Community Day was "growing together," which signifies the impact of associates' efforts in building upon the company's workplace culture and local community partnerships.

"It takes the tireless support of many to accomplish what gets done in one day," said Jeff Linton, Senior Vice President of Corporate Communication and Community Relations at Forest City. “The feedback we received from the agencies served, as well as our associates who volunteered, has been overwhelmingly positive."

The nationwide event followed the recent news that Forest City was named a Top Workplace in Northeast Ohio for the fourth consecutive year. 

“Everyone who participated in Community Day should be proud of the difference we made, while also coming together as a team and having fun,” said Jan Camerato, Human Resources Executive Coordinator at Forest City. “I am honored to have the opportunity to work with each one of my fellow Forest City associates.”
