Thirve & Drive: Green Area Adventure Guides

VanDevere continues to support Children’s Programs in the Akron Area Community with our Thrive & Drive fundraiser.  VanDevere supplies a vehicle while different community groups sell raffle tickets raising funds for their organization. At the end of the Thrive & Drive season, all tickets are pooled and a winner is drawn.

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.

The VanDevere Thrive & Drive program enables them to subsidize these activities and keep them affordable for the members

The VanDevere Bunch helps raise over $26,000 for IBH Addiction Recovery Center

The VanDevere Bunch was a sponsor at the annual IBH golf outing earlier this month. This golf outing was able to raise over $26,000 for this great community organization. IBH (Interval Brotherhood Home) Addiction Recovery Center has been around for over 40 years and has helped over 15,000 people recover from alcohol and drug addiction.

Located in Akron, Ohio where Alcoholics Anonymous was founded, IBH offers persons afflicted with alcohol and drug addiction the opportunity to restore hope and gain skills for a lifetime of sobriety.

IBH uses individualized, abstinence-based and holistic processes that include clinical and educational treatment, spiritual care, sober housing, employment, training and transportation. Our clients come from all walks of life, cultures, backgrounds and ages. We address the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of recovery.

If you or someone you know needs help overcoming addiction, IBH provides the knowledge, values and skills to manage life appropriately without the use of alcohol or drugs. IBH helps  reconnect families and helps addicts develop a life of sobriety.
