The Shelly Company in Northeast Ohio has committed to servicing a series of “Done-In-A-Day” volunteer projects before the end of the year. With the help of Business and Volunteers United (BVU), The Shelly Company has teamed up with local nonprofit groups to help make a difference and pursue a greater involvement in addressing community concerns. “We take great pride in giving back to local communities and empowering our teams to support their neighbors in need. This spring, employees jumped into action to sign up and help out,” said Steve Conklin, Shelly Northeast Division General Manager and Vice President.
The Shelly Company Northeast Division started its community quest on May 2 with over 40 employees and family members who volunteered at Camp Ho Mita Koda, the oldest summer camp in the nation for children with diabetes. Shelly employees spent the day cleaning camp structures by scrubbing floors, washing windows, clearing hiking paths and stacking firewood for the expected 200 children to arrive within the next few weeks.
“It was an honor partnering with the Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland. It felt great spending the day at Camp Ho Mita Koda and working hard to make the young campers’ experience that much more enjoyable,” said Jason Emch, Shelly aggregates operations manager. “I am looking forward to the next projects to come.”
The Shelly Company Northeast Division has three more “Done-In-A-Day” projects to complete before the end of the year. Thanks to BVU, the upcoming projects are scheduled and plans are well underway.
