FirstService Residential: Las Vegas Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus

The Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus Tours program was created in 2008 in loving memory of a remarkable little girl named Cheyenne. She loved visiting the Magical Forest, sharing laughter and hugs with her friends, and connecting with the wonderful people with intellectual disabilities Opportunity Village serves.

Opportunity Village is happy to know that Cheyenne will forever watch over the Magical Forest and the very special children who visit. Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus Tours provides a Magical Forest field trip experience to first grade students from Clark County School District’s most at-risk Title I schools. While youngsters are given the chance to frolic in the excitement of the holiday season, lessons of inclusiveness, acceptance and disability awareness are also incorporated into the day of fun – making it a most merry and meaningful visit to Opportunity Village and the Magical Forest. Through interactions with the wonderful people Opportunity Village serves, classmates and teachers alike, we remind kids how simple it is to Just Be Nice!

FirstService Residential: Hosting Teddy Bear Drive to Support The Center for Child Protection

FirstService Residential is hosting a Teddy Bear Drive to benefit Travis County child abuse victims.

The Center for Child Protection is a nationally accredited children’s advocacy center and the only non-profit in Travis County involved in the investigation of crimes against children. For more than 30 years, the Center has been the first stop for children in Travis County who are suspected victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse and for children who have witnessed a violent crime. Every month, more than 300 child victims and their siblings receive a teddy bear or stuffed animal after visiting the Center. The teddy bear provides comfort and a sense of safety during a difficult time, and it represents a new beginning for these children.

With a continually increasing number of children visiting the Center each day, we are asking for support in keeping their teddy bear and stuffed animals supply fully stocked. We are asking for new stuffed animals only please and have provided a wish list for easy ordering to send bears directly to our collection office (link below).

Bears can also be dropped of during normal business hours to the Austin office: 7 Lakeway Centre Court, Ste. 102, Lakeway, Texas 78734.

Super Restoration: Working Together to Feed 307 Starving Children for an Entire Year

It was all hands on deck on Saturday, November 23, 2019 when more than 528 volunteers came together to pack 112,104 meals to feed 307 starving children throughout the world for an entire year! 

In addition to the food packed, the team raised more than $30,000 to help fund the noble work of Feed My Starving Children.

“Dear Super Restoration team – THANK YOU! You are all such champions for putting on this event for your community,” said Bethany Durst, Feed My Starving Children eemployee. “It was wonderful serving with you all. This was one of the most efficient packs I’ve done because of your hard prep work. I hope our paths cross again soon!”

This event is meaningful to so many at Super Restoration who demonstrate a commitment to #FirstServeOthers through many activities throughout the year. 

 “This was my second year coordinating the Feed My Starving Children Event to be hosted at Super Restoration. I began working on this year’s event in July 2019. This year, I was able to create and organize more efficiently because I had experience under my belt. It was so amazing to see a lot of hard work and effort come together on the event day,” said Jamie O’Camb, executive assistant to Rene Vargas. ‘When I saw all of the volunteers in our warehouse, it made me so proud to be part of a company that sees the value in giving back to our community. It was such a blessing to meet all of the genuine people and families who took time out of their weekend to help people around the world. Once again, this event made such an impact on me and will be something I continue to support and work on for the years to come!”  

Congrats to the Super Restoration team on an incredibly successful and meaningful event!

Paul Davis: A Successful Bake Sale and Silent Auction to Benefit a Special Infant

Through Social Purpose, Paul Davis not only supports the community and environment, but the company also supports its people.

Many of the 2019 initiatives have been passion projects presented by individual team members. This one was no different. A team member shared that her infant cousin had undergone multiple heart surgeries in his first year of life and asked if we could do something to help their family. So the team held a bake sale and silent auction.  In one day, the team raised $700!

This inspired an outside donor to contribute another $300, reaching a total of $1,000. The team member shared that she had no idea if we could even help, but she saw no harm in asking. She was blown away at how everyone leaned in and contributed. Needless to say, Robbie’s family is incredibly grateful for this group of strangers helping their little boy. This was another wonderful example of Paul Davis coming together in the spirit of giving to #FirstServeOthers!
