Putting the “Partner” in Corporate Partner

Our organization would not thrive without the support of our community – including our valued corporate partners. This year, Farmers Insurance has gone above and beyond with their willingness to step in and help us create great futures for our Club Members.

In addition to their financial support for our Power Hour Program – a program that helps our members achieve academic success by providing homework support, tutoring and technology engaged activities – Farmers Insurance has been ultra-engaged by sending over 240 employees and volunteering over 660 hours of their time!

Volunteering at Camp O’Malley is a hit when it comes to the Farmers Insurance employees. In the spring the hard-working volunteers helped greatly with setting up equipment and preparing the camp grounds for the upcoming camp season, with extra time being spent on readying the Farmers Insurance Garden. Then in the late fall, they helped shut down and winterize camp, and of course, their favorite, raking ALL the leaves that covered the grounds.

Their volunteer help extends into our Clubs. We are fortunate to have had multiple groups visit our spaces and donate their time and talents to help out with our daily programming. Our members received help with homework and art projects, tough competition in dodgeball and basketball, and taught the volunteers how to play carpet ball – the most popular game in our clubs.

Farmers also put us in the holiday spirit by helping our members get decorative with their holiday cookies. However, it is not all fun and games. Some groups spent their time cleaning and sanitizing the club spaces or helped with the set up for our Be Great Tailgate event. But, there is one thing for sure, every volunteer left with a smile on their face and an impact on Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids.

We love and appreciate each and every one of our corporate partners that support our mission through a variety of ways such as event and program sponsorship, volunteering, workplace giving and/or cause marketing. Our organization would not have the impact that we have without the large role of our corporate partners.
