EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Jan. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Griffin Capital Corporation, a leading real estate investment and asset management company, recently challenged its more than 120 employees to select a worthy philanthropic organization to whom the company would make a donation on the employee's behalf. This first-ever 'holiday charity drive' attracted 100 percent participation, and Griffin donated to a diverse set of local, national and international non-profit organizations. At Griffin's year-end holiday celebration, all of the organizations that were chosen, paired with the names of the employees who chose them, were on display, and several employees shared emotional stories why they chose their charity.
