Vizient has been supporting me through donations and through their website. The internal communications manager for marketing and communications at Vizient has agreed to post on Vizient's Summer Hobbies Segment internal page. I sent her information about my donation drive and project, and she formatted it to go on the website. As of today, it has been posted on the website. The community outreach director at Vizient has also been working toward featuring my story about my Gold Award project to Vizient Cares Connect (an internal volunteering website). Additionally, several staff members at Vizient have been donating personal hygiene and household items. I am very thankful for Vizient's support thus far. Below are images of some more donations I have received from Vizient, as well as an image of the Summer Hobbies Segment post (after the marketing and communications manager revised it). Below are also images of the donation box set-up at Vizient.
The donation box located at Kelly's Ole's has received several donations of personal hygiene and household thus far. Yesterday, Sam from Metrocrest picked up these donations to deliver them to Metrocrest Services. More information about this is below, in another blog post. The owner of Kelly's Ole's has been very supportive throughout my Gold Award project, and has allowed me to set-up brochures inside of the restaurant as well. Please stop by Kelly's Ole's or any of the other donation drop-off locations with a donation of personal hygiene and/or household items! An image of the donation box (and brochures) located at Kelly's Ole's in shown below. Thank you for your support.
On Saturday, July 14th, I went to the Dollar Tree in order to buy personal hygiene and household items using donated money given to me by members of the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church congregation. I am very happy with the results. These items have been delivered to Metrocrest Services. More information about my first drop-off of donations to Metrocrest Services is below, on another blog post. Images from the Dollar Tree visit are below.
The secretary of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church has significantly supported me in the process of collecting donations for Metrocrest Services. She added an announcement to the Church bulletin and also created a list with the much-needed items at Metrocrest Services for the congregation to see (images below). I have received a lot of support from the Church congregation, who has supported me and has helped me collect several donations already.
As of 7/20/18, I have received several donations from the following locations:
Yesterday (7/19/18), I dropped-off the personal hygiene and household donations from Good Shepherd Lutheran Church to Metrocrest Services' food pantry. Brittni (volunteer manager at Metrocrest) and Sam (marketing coordinator at Metrocrest) helped me to unload the donations and take pictures! Yesterday, Sam also picked-up donations from the full donation box located at Kelly's Ole's! In total, I have been able to collect several donations from these two locations. Finally, yesterday Sam posted on Metrocrest Services' social media accounts about my donation drive and about the first drop-off of my donations from Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
