Clear Horizons Academy is a non-profit school for Autistic children. Clear Horizons strives to give these kids as much help as they need, so they can one day attend a mainstream school without any major hiccups along the way. Clear Horizons focuses on not just their students, but they make sure that their employees have the best training possible. They also facilitate the training of parents on how to best teach their children. The teachers and staff often clean the facilities themselves because they are a non-profit organization and cannot hire outside help. We recognized the need and decided to fill it. Since July of 2013 we have regularly come into Clear Horizons to help tidy up. We clean anything and everything with a smile from desks to toys to floors. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to volunteer at Clear Horizons so habitually.
The American Red Cross hosts blood drives all around the country. Their mission is to collect blood to save lives. Each donor donates about a pint of blood, and with that blood Red Cross can distribute to three individual people, ultimately saving three lives. The process of saving those lives is very extensive, considering all of the tests that they must perform to ensure that the blood is safe to donate.
The American Red Cross has set up several blood drives in our building, and we have had several opportunities to help with the first step of this process. We love to host these drives because on each occasion our employees have exceeded Red Cross’s expectations as well as our own. We feel extremely privileged to employ individuals who rise to the occasion, willing to give of their time to donate blood and save lives.
The Salvation Army has many programs in place all over the world to succor the human race. They provide services such as job training, Christmas aid, ministry within the prisons, natural disaster relief, and managing soup kitchens and homeless shelters to name a few.
We wanted to give back to the 2011 tornado survivors of Alabama because some of our employees had been in Alabama during the disaster. We partnered with the Salvation Army, and they helped us find families in need. With the help of generous donations from our customers and employees we were able to donate a home to two families in Alabama. We gave a home to single mother, Ramion Brown, and her son, Damari. After the tornado they were left homeless, and Ramion had to put her education on hold trying to get back on her feet. We also gave a home to the Yelders, a family with four children that had endured hardship including the homelessness after the tornado and the death of a child. Both families were speechless and grateful for their new homes. We are grateful to the Salvation Army for helping us put this service together.
The Special Olympics provides programs for individuals with mental disabilities to have the opportunity to participate in sporting events. Special Olympics holds events all around the world and has inspired millions. They strive to encourage every special needs child and adult to physically reach their potential and exercise courage by participating in a sport they would not have participated in initially. We have added our efforts to theirs by volunteering at their local events helping with scoreboards and competitions. Although the events award athletes based on performance, we love to be involved with the Special Olympics because with them, everyone is a winner.
We have attended the Utah Food Bank on several occasions. We send large groups of employees each time, and each time they come back with a good report of their experience. Often we spend our time unloading pallets, stocking shelves, preparing carts for the storefront, and sweeping and vacuuming floors. We are so blessed to be affiliated with the Utah Food Bank. Their mission to help families in need while encouraging self-reliance inspires us all as the purest kind of service.
Community and Military based recovery and rehabilitation programs bring the benefits of R2R to more Veterans with one important goal: More riders riding more often. Ride 2 Recovery’s Project HERO (Healing Exercise Rehabilitation Opportunity) Provides training and support for community based programs. Begun in November 2010 at Bethesda Naval Medical Center (now Walter Reed National Military Medical Center), Project HERO has proven the effectiveness of group riding in the rehabilitation and recovery of injured servicemembers.
We continually have the honor of sponsoring Brigham Young University. This university encourages success on every level: educational, social, and spiritual. We have had the opportunity to become a Founder of the Marriot School Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology and sponsoring the 2013 and 2014 White Out Football Games. We are thrilled to be a part of BYU and cannot wait to see what we can do in the future.
We have partnered with the Utah Valley University of Orem, Utah. Their university quality education with the intimate college feel drew us in. We partnered with their Career Development Center. With this status we have been able to donate to the book scholarship fund and advertise on campus for students to apply for a job with us. We are also sponsoring their Pink with a Purpose games, a breast cancer awareness program. Each new opportunity to participate at UVU excites us and we look forward to what the future brings.
