ASBECO believes in volunteerism and its lasting, positive impact on our community. It also enables our employees to provide a service to those who need it most.
Here are some highlights from our community service efforts this year!
Volunteering at No Longer Bound
Not only do we love this organization and what they do, but we’ve really enjoyed being able to volunteer as a team at their distribution center each month. This amazing group of men are always so welcoming and humble, and we always leave with our hearts full.
Each year, over 120 men go to NLB in hopes of finding freedom from their addiction to drugs or alcohol. Their regeneration program maintains approximately a 70% graduation , which is phenomenal considering the odds against achieving recovery from addiction.
NLB relies heavily on donations and volunteers to support the regeneration program they offer so that men that otherwise couldn’t afford a rehab program can get the help they need.
NLB hopes to one day open an expansive, peaceful property in North Georgia that can better support their needs. For more information or to donate to their cause, go to https://nolongerbound.com/
Day of the Dozer – August 25th, 2018
We were so excited to sponsor this event!! Day of the Dozer allows kids to experience what it’s like to drive bulldozers, excavators, combines, and other heavy equipment with a professional operator at their side.
DOD was held in Bloomington, IL and hosted by the “Stay 4” Project®, a local initiative designed to address the high school dropout crisis, and help low income students that demonstrate the ability to succeed, yet are at risk for dropping out.
Even better, we got to send one of our own team members to help out and snap these pics for us.
Bert’s Big Adventure – #GivingTuesday Donation
In honor of National Giving Tuesday, ASBECO donated $1,000 to Bert’s Big Adventure!
Established in 2002, Bert’s Big Adventure provides all-expenses-paid trips to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Following the annual trip, Bert’s Big Adventure provides year-round support through initiatives such as the Reunion Adventures, the Fairy Godparent volunteer program and additional charitable services. The trip and programs create a community of families that establish lasting friendships with others facing similar challenges.
Bill’s Game – October 2018
One of our own employees Anna Miller, along with Seth Johnson, put together #BillsGame. Becky Howell with WESCO Distribution was also there with Bill in PA, and we want to thank them for their very generous help with the trip as well, including the box tickets and field passes. This was a truly special story.
