Planting Seeds for Others

May 29, 2014

Last week, a group from Reliance One spent a day at Forgotten Harvest of Southeast Detroit. Kevin, Sean, Ramzy, and Andrew arrived at the farm early Wednesday morning and began by fixing the tarps that covered the seed beds which stretched across the 300 yard field. After they finished this task, they planted long rows of squash and zucchini. “It was some of the hardest physical work I have done in a long time, but I’m so thankful my company allows us the opportunity to give back in the community,” said Sean Hill, Senior Technical Recruiter.

To end their day, they made sure the plant beds were fixed accordingly, the tarps were secure, and the field was cleaned up. “I never really knew how much Forgotten Harvest impacted families. We learned that they saved over 1 million pounds of food last year which otherwise would have gone to waste, and their goal for this year is 1.7 million pounds,” said Kevin Gay, Senior Account Executive. “It was such an eye opening and humbling experience, and I’m so thankful I was able to donate my time to such a great organization.”

R1 Impact – Whaley Children’s Center

May 12, 2014

On Monday, a team of Reliance One employees volunteered their time with the Whaley Children’s Center in Flint, MI. During the day they helped out by unloading and sorting many of the donations the center had received from their last fundraiser. They also assisted in yard cleanup for one of the properties the Children’s Center owns. A large windstorm had recently passed through causing many branches to be scattered throughout the property, so the extra sets of hands for clean-up were greatly appreciated.

The team said they were able to tour the facility and meet with several of the children, which had a pretty big impact on them. “After spending the day helping out and meeting the children, I really saw how important the center is to the community and how volunteering my time really can make a difference in someone’s life,” said Norm Riopelle, Technical Recruiter at Reliance One.

They also said it was nice to be able to serve a place that does so much for children who severely need it, and they really look forward to the opportunity to go back! “This experience opened my eyes to the great services Whaley Children’s Center provides to the youth in need of the Flint area,” said Riopelle.
