We're so grateful to have been a part of this volunteer challenge and to have been not only the Medium Company Winner, but the People's Choice as well. This was our second year back at the The Salvation Army, Lehigh Valley's Hospitality House shelter in Allentown. We were able to add to the gardens built last year as well as add a pergola, seating and additional landscaping. Special thanks to our sponsors Dan Schantz Greenhouse and Cut Flower Outlet; Dries Do it Center; our Isett volunteers and Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley.
Through the generosity of all of the associates that donated and the company match of those donations, we raised a total of $977 dollars which gave us the top medium sized company award and possibly also the top donation amount among all companies. In addition, as each attendee entered the event, they were given one token to be used in voting for the top project – the People’s Choice Award, which we also won!
However, the real big winner was the Volunteer Center itself and all the people and organizations they support. Through the sponsorships, the silent auction and the voting, it seems to have been a record year, raising about $40,000.
