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!

VanDevere Cares – Haven of Rest

Haven of Rest

April edition of VanDevere Cares!

This month, we were able to help Haven of Rest Ministries Akron,OH by volunteering time to clean, prep, organize, and more! Specifically, we were able to help make 90 beds, dozens of visitor bins, and a lot of laundry. In total, we completed 27 service hours.
Thank you VanDevere team for taking time to help out the Akron community! Everyone put in a lot of work to make the Akron community a better place. We are getting closer to our 500 hours of service goal each month and we encourage the rest of our team to try to attend the next event. Next month we will be working with Veteran’s Memorial Park. Hope to see you there!

Family Center & Family Enrichment Center

VanDevere Cares: Family Center & Enrichment  Center

For the month of March, this bunch were able to support the Family Center and the Family Enrichment Center. These facilities were created for children and their families to connect, grow, and rebuild relationships.
The VanDevere Bunch gave back 35 hours of service to this amazing organization. Cleaning, sanitizing, building toys, organizing, and creating Easter baskets for the kids were some of the many activities they did while they were there.
Amazing job everyone who signed up and attended. We cannot wait until next months chance to support the community!
