During the past 40 years, ANF Architects has focused on building
two things: Great architecture and a great community. As a locally owned small business, we believe
we have a social responsibility to make Memphis a better place.
Employees are encouraged to jump in and make a difference,
both as representatives of the firm and as individuals. Throughout the year we
find many opportunities to volunteer both during and after work hours. Employees
take pride in the fact that the firm cares about our community and that ANF is
working hard to make it better and stronger.
Our clients can feel good about partnering with a firm that
ANF adopted a ‘flock of angels’ from the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree
Program. This program brings the “magic
of Christmas” to local children and seniors in need. Holiday gifts such as
bicycles, toys, winter coats, clothing, and special-needs items relieve family
budgets too tight to allow for extras.
Every member of the ANF team (all 23 of us) contributed
& worked together to shop for 16 children (ages 11 months to 12 years old)
and 4 senior citizens. This was such a beautiful way to spread Christmas cheer!
If you are interested in adopting an angel this year, you
can visit the Oak Court Mall, Wolfchase Galleria or Carrefour at Kirby Woods,
thru Dec 12 to select your very own angel from the tree. To learn more about the Angel Tree Program,
