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!

California Closets: Gulf Coast Veterans Appreciation Week

The entire California Closets Gulf Coast team is supportive of our men and woman who have served this great country.  To honor and show their gratitude to our Veterans, California Closets Gulf Coast will be donating $25 to Fisher House for every consultation booked from November 11-16, 2019.  To promote and support this effort, the team will also be wearing camouflaged logo shirts all week.

All Veterans and First Responders are welcome into their showroom in Metairie (3211 N. Causeway Blvd) and Baton Rouge (7415 Corporate Blvd at Town Place) every day for a free cup of coffee on Veterans Day, and all week (November 11-16th), they will receive a special gift as well.  In addition, to honor our Veterans every day, CC Gulf Coast gives an additional 5% discount off the best offer, even on promotions, to Active Duty, Reserve, Retired or Honorably Discharged Veterans with every job they do with us. This is their way of saying Thank You for serving this great Country and giving us the opportunities we have.

Fisher House has been chosen by the Gulf Coast team as one of their two organizations in which they will donate 250 or more volunteer hours in 2020.  A Fisher House is a “home away from home” where military and Veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve.  Fisher Houses typically have 16 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room, and an inviting living room.  In addition to financial contributions, the Gulf Coast team will also be donating custom closets and storage spaces for the new Fisher House being built in Louisiana.

New owner Joe Lindenmayer said, “Being a Marine and Veteran of Desert Storm, along with 1 of 5 brothers who served in our family, and having our GM, Jed who is an Army Veteran, we believe in giving back and honoring those who have served. Supporting the Fisher House with financial contributions, along with in-kind support as they build their first facility in Louisiana, is the community involvement of which we want to be a part. Our families and our California Closets Team are equally supportive with spouses, friends and family who have served as well. We want to say thank you!”

California Closets Gulf Coast’s goal is to raise between $500 and $1,000 from this event alone, along with $10,000 of in-kind donations and 250 volunteer hours for the Fisher House.  If you would like to donate to Fisher House, please click here
