Ingram Micro Mobility Gives Our Wheeler-Dowe Club A Boost

Each year, Ingram Micro Mobility, a company that works with highly recognized technology businesses, dedicates a IMG_7432 REDUCEDweek of service to a non-profit organization. During their 2014 Week of Caring, employees offered their time and energy by giving our Wheeler-Dowe Club a makeover.

“This was a great event that highlighted how we live out our corporate values, work as a team to accomplish a common objective and have a little fun as well,” said Ed MacDonald, an executive chair of the project. “At the end of the week, we were able to look at the finished product with a sense of accomplishment and a warm heart, knowing that those using the facility now had a safer, cleaner and more creative environment to visit after school.”Optimized-IMG_7287

Ingram Micro Mobility employees volunteered approximately 1,800 hours of service renovating the Club. Thanks to their hard work, dedication and resources, Wheeler-Dowe received new furniture in the teen and art rooms, new flooring in the gamesroom, new baseboards and new paint in several areas.

“Wheeler-Dowe is a safe haven from the challenges Club kids face outside our doors,” said LeeAnn Harris, Director of Club of Operations at Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis. “We would not have been able to accomplish this without the support of Ingram Micro, and for that we are very grateful.”
