Jeans Day: June 21st – Akron Pregnancy Services

 

This month VanDevere employees are donating to Akron Pregnancy Services as part of their monthly Jeans Day Charity Drives!  All donations will be matched by the company and donated to the group.

Akron Pregnancy Services is a safe place where women can go to get help when they are facing an unplanned pregnancy; a place where they can process their options and leave with a clear perspective. On a daily basis they see women, and men, feeling emotionally overwhelmed and fearful about an unplanned pregnancy.  APS is a safe, nonjudgemental place where all of their options can be explored. Many of our staff and volunteers have been through a similar experience as our clients and understand the pressures an unplanned pregnancy may bring.  You can find out more at akronpregnancyservices.com.

Any customer wishing to donate to this cause and have their donation matched, are welcome to drop off the donation at any VanDevere location!

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

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.
