Thursday Aug 18 will be our next Jeans Day benefitting TWO great community organizations. Akron Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House. As usual, employees will be permitted to wear jeans in exchange for a donation. VanDevere will match every dollar donated by employees.
Thank you to all the employees that continue to take part in this great opportunity to raise money for our community organizations.
Congratulations to Travis Cunningham. He is the winner of this new car from VanDevere’s Thrive & Drive community fundraiser program. Travis purchased his ticket from the Ohio Lightning organization and gets to drive away in the great new Cruze. VanDevere would like to thank all of you that participated in this great fundraiser as we were able to raise thousands of dollars for local youth organizations.
Jeans Day this month will be on July 21 and will benefit Caring For Kids. This organization provides backpacks full of school supplies for the children in their program. July 21st employees will be permitted to wear jeans to work in exchange for donating an item listed above to this wonderful organization.
Adding to the list of 2016 VanDevere Thrive & Drive program participants is the Akron Soap Box Derby. This great community organization is selling raffle tickets to raise money for their own cause. These tickets are then entered into a drawing with other participating Thrive & Drive community organizations giving a lucky ticketed individual a chance to win a brand new car from VanDevere. Just another way VanDevere gives back to a supporting community since 1946.

Our most recent participants are the Green Area Adventure Guides. They are a Father Son program that serves to foster the father-son relationship with a motto of “Pals Forever”.
They attend camp outs and a variety of fun monthly activities in the community as well as doing an annual service project. This past weekend they camped at Camp Y-Noah and had a great time fishing, riding horses and doing other challenging activities.
