VESTA Modular | Give Back

Vesta Modular Give Back event logo

When it comes to community, VESTA has committed to helping and being part of their local communities, to”Give-Back”! Throughout the country our offices have chosen to donate to causes and organizations that were near and dear to them.  Below are the organizations that some of our employees and offices have chosen!

Soldiers’ Angels Adopt-A-Family

Christine Hordeman and Deana Harb chose a charity near and dear to them, a Marine family for the holidays via Soldiers’ Angels with a little girl age 6 and a little boy age 2. They were able to purchase everything on their wish list as well as a gift certificate for the family to purchase a nice holiday dinner.

The Soldiers’ Angels Holiday Adopt-A-Family program helps businesses, organizations, and individuals support qualified military and veteran families that could use some help providing a holiday celebration for their families. The minimum requirement to adopt a family is to provide gifts for the children and a grocery gift card to help them purchase their holiday dinner and trimmings.

 

 

Kendall County Community Food Pantry

Our Oswego, IL office; Pat Carmody, Nicole Barnes and Susan Kinsella chose Kendall County Community Food Pantry for their “give back” donation. They were able to provide donations of food, paper goods, cleaning supplies, and first aid products.

Kendall County Community Food Pantry offers and provides all types of donations:

  • Food
  • Medical Care
  • Pet Food
  • Clothing
  • And More

Fostering Together Gulf Coast

VESTA’s Emily McGough and her son Will, had a great time spreading holiday cheer by shopping for a 5 year old girl in foster care. They delivered their car full of presents to Fostering Together Gulf Coast in Mobile, AL.

Fostering Together Gulf Coast is a nonprofit that began in 2019 with the goal of providing support to foster and adoptive families in Mobile and Baldwin counties. They promote healthy foster and adoptive families by providing easy access to resources that help build strong, resilient children who thrive within healthy families and break the cycle of abuse, neglect, and trauma. They also provide an outlet  for the local community to come alongside these children and families in support.

Fostering Together Gulf Coast is led by a board of directors who care deeply about foster care and adoption. Their board is made up of foster and adoptive parents, social workers, and pastoral staff, among others. Their website states: “We understand the joys and challenges of parenting children who have experienced trauma. We are committed to walking alongside these families in order to help lighten their load and build a supportive community around them.”

 

Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center

The Maryville, TN office decorated a beautiful tree with home made VESTA ornaments! Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center volunteer, Lisa Brezeale (middle) accepts the check from Kelly Williams (right) and Darryl Lennox (left) for their foundation for our furry friends.
Even with a staff of all volunteers, it still takes almost $9.70 per day to take care of each animal. VESTA’s gift, along with the many other donations MAARC receives, will help ensure these dedicated volunteers will have funds necessary to take care of these poor animals and find them a forever home.
Each year approximately 6 million dogs and cats enter shelters nationwide. Roughly half of those will be euthanized, not due to poor health or aggression issues but simply due to lack of resources. At the Maryville Alcoa Animal Rescue Center they are committed to saving these innocent lives, all of them – not just 50% of them. They believe every animal deserves a chance at life. Their dedicated team of volunteers work around the clock caring for every animal that enters their system with not only housing, feeding, cleaning, and vetting; but with training, love, and socialization. Anything and everything needed to get these forgotten and abandoned animals ready for their forever home. Due to efforts like these, the community has proudly maintained a 98% or better save rate for over 5 years.
VESTA adopted a family of 4 and Steve Mogil adopted three additional families, all with the Headstart program of Clearwater Florida through Lutheran Family Services. We requested some families that we could help and were given these families by Hannelore Entzion from Head Start.

LSF is an organization dedicated to serving those most vulnerable members of their communities by providing life-changing human services to all people regardless of age, background, or belief system.

Their website states: “We are dedicated to serving children and families, youth and teens, adults and elderly, refugees and immigrants through various programs ranging from substance abuse and mental health to education.”

 

 

 

Birchview Gardens Assisted Living, Inc.

Jim Qualley and his wife, took the VESTA giving and matched with their own contribution to purchase personal items for each resident at Birchview Gardens Assisted Living, Inc. in MN. Many of the residents don’t have visitors during the Holiday Season and because of strict diet restrictions for many, candy and food could not be brought in. With a total of 40 residents at this facility, Jim and his wife assembled 40 gift bags and brought them to the facility so that they would have them in time for their Christmas. The gift bags included; personal items such as soaps, shampoos, toothbrush & toothpaste, lotions, etc.

Hackensack’s first assisted living facility was constructed with the comfort and safety of their residents in mind. Birchview Gardens is conveniently located only one block east of highway 371 behind the First National Bank of Walker in Hackensack, MN. Birchview Gardens was named after the beautiful Birch Lake, which is only blocks away and within walking distance, and the beautiful gardens and walking track which surrounds the building. A bank, post office, grocery store, and several restaurants are all within walking distance of Birchview Gardens.

Birchview Gardens offers a wide variety of senior apartment sizes including apartments 1,000 square feet and larger! All senior apartments are wheelchair accessible and all have private kitchens and bathrooms that are also wheelchair accessible.
Birchview Gardens also has partnered with Essentia Health and provided space for their medical clinic within the same building as the assisted living facility for the convenience of their residents. There are also several churches nearby and one church rests adjacent to our property for your convenience.

Grace Place Ministry

Brian Kelly chose Grace Place Ministry in Hendersonville, TN for his “VESTA Give back” donation! Their mission is to empower single mothers in need and their children toward developing healthy, safe, and independent lives in the local community. Lisa Jo Anderson, Office Manager at Grace Place Ministry, Inc. accepted the wonderful donations to help their organization and the many people who benefit from this mission.

Capuchin Soup Kitchen

Our VESTA corporate office was fortunate to be able to help the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit as part of our holiday “give back”. We volunteered to help stock shelves for their food pantry and organize clothing, all of which is free to the public based on need.
Their website states: Their mission: “Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, we tend to people’s basic needs, especially the need for food. We also strive to stimulate minds, nourish spirits, and address root causes of social injustice.”
