VanDevere Cares – Medina County SPCA

Medina County SPCA – VanDevere Employee Volunteering

We were very excited to have the opportunity to help Medina County SPCA this past weekend. Our team was able to help landscape this great organizations grounds. Everything went well and it was a nice sunny day to do it.  Not a cloud in the sky! They were very appreciative of our time assisting the building’s outdoor spaces. I think it is ready for pets to be adopted and meet their new owners!

We officially added 15 more hours to our end of the year goal of 500 hours. Our next giving back opportunity is at Coventry local schools to help uplift the exterior of the buildings. This event will be on Tuesday, August 15th.

National Interstate 8K Race – VanDevere Employee Volunteering

National Interstate Insurance Company Akron Marathon had the National Interstate 8K Race this weekend! Our team was able to provide water and give support to those who participated in the race. In total, we prepped the Fluid Stations and then served water/Gatorade to over 1,000 runners!
We appreciated the opportunity to volunteer for this big event. Our team had a lot of fun contributing their time and energy to aid the participants. We added 14 more service hours to our yearly goal of 500 hours!
On to the next employee volunteer event at Medina County SPCA. This event is on July 19th where we will be able to help animals find a new forever home. We cannot wait to support!

VanDevere Cares – Ohio Veterans’ Memorial Park

Ohio Veterans’ Memorial Park – Employee Volunteer Opportunity

The VanDevere Bunch hopes everyone had a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! For the month of May, members of our team went to Ohio Veterans’ Memorial Park. At the park, they were able to clean the wall, benches and monuments within the park. Everyone worked hard to get it ready for the holiday weekend. In total, they were able to give 15 hours of their time to this incredible organization. This gets us closer to our end of the year goal of 500 service hours!

Here is some more information about what Ohio Veterans’ Memorial Park is all about: “… we have added the names of all Ohioans who have given their lives during the War on Terror, including the Beirut Bombing, and are planning on adding the names of our Korean War lost. The park is open 24 hours a day and 365 days a year; we never close to the public and we welcome everyone to visit and pay homage to our war fighters.”

For June, a new group of employees will be going to the National Interstate 8K run on June 24th. They will be passing out waters and showing support to all the runners. Hopefully we will see you all there!
