Each year, Ingram Micro Mobility, a company that works with highly recognized technology businesses, dedicates a week 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.”
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 game room, 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.”
