Composting

Composting Project at Wilson Elementary!!

This 4-week project is teaching students at Wilson elementary about composting and how to separate compostable waste from other waste. Every Wednesday for the next month during lunch hour volunteers are helping the students. The separated waste is then being taken to USU to their new composting center.

For the past two years we have had the privilege of being part of the 40 Days of Service sponsored by the organization Service For Peace . . . . Service For Peace funded our Martin Luther King Jr Day Community Fair. With the grant that we received we were able to provide our community with a free reading literacy, health literacy, financial literacy, emergency preparedness and fashion literacy workshops and booths for all ages.

Service For Peace is dedicated to bringing peace to communities through volunteerism.

 

 

 

statefarm

State Farm has been a wonderful partner for the Cache Valley Volunteer Center and TEAM Mentoring this year. They have provided a couple of key grants that have made it possible for us to keep the TEAM Mentoring program going strong. I’m not sure we would have survived some our challenges without their support, but the State Farm funding has been helped TEAM to become strong and vibrant.

Through the Youth in the Driver’s Seat grant our youth have had a year-long focus on safe driving. Beginning with Celebrate My Drive in the Fall, a safe driving themed entry at the North Logan Pumpkin Walk, a safe driving themed gingerbread house display, and a whole lot more leading up to the upcoming safe driving rally.

In addition, a State Farm corporate grant provided a much-needed base for the career readiness, college prep component of the program.

We are also grateful to the local State Farm agents who helped us with the Celebrate My Drive! efforts last Fall, and will be helping to run the activity booths at the safe driving rally: Rigo, Chapparo, Tyson Luthi, Lana Powell, and Mark Weese.

THANK YOU, STATE FARM!!

We couldn’t do what we do without your support!

September 2014 Volunteer of the Month:  

Lori Staples

VOM-09-14-LoriStaples

When Lorie Staples started volunteering in May 2010, she was responsible for making sure the cat room at PetSmart was clean and the kitties had fresh water and food.  She also got to play and snuggle with the kitties to provide social interaction.

Lorie wanted to volunteer because she believes in the Four Paws Mission to help find homes for animals.  She wanted to do her part to bring some affection to cats available for adoption.  Lorie has one cat,  Zoie, who is queen of the house. She would love to foster/adopt another kitty, but Zoie highly prefers the humans all to herself.  Lorie says by volunteering it’s like she has several other pets to call her own.  She just doesn’t bring them home with her!

Lorie also wanted to volunteer because her employer at the time would donate $1,000 to the organization where 40 hours of volunteer time was completed.  She was eligible for this award yearly, and was able to receive this award TWICE which really helped Four Paws Rescue.  She really likes the fact that Four Paws is a no kill shelter.  She feels Four Paws isn’t as well known as other organizations which means they may not have near the donations that higher profile agencies bring in.  Being able to get the $1,000 donation twice for Four Paws meant a lot to her and Four Paws greatly appreciates this!

Lorie has steadily held a weekly evening shift for 4 whole years!   She also is a regular donor to the yard sale fundraiser, and she has also helped out at a Pet Run a few years back.  The pet run was great because she was able to meet some of the dogs that Four Paws has helped find homes for.

What has kept Lorie volunteering for 4 years?  She keeps volunteering because Four Paws “is a really great organization and [she] truly enjoys spending time with the cats every week.”  There have been a few kitties that caught her eye and her heart.  They almost went home with her, but she knew she would have to endure the wrath of Zoie.

Lorie currently works at Utah State University as a Staff Assistant for the Plants, Soils, & Climate department and the Applied Economics department. She loves working both departments because she has been able to meet so many people and have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of two departments.

Lorie has been married for 6 years and lives with Zoie the cat, who is 8 years old.  Zoie is quite the character, and has put a lot of time and effort into training her humans well.  She and her husband would like to eventually adopt a puppy but she needs to acquire a yard first.  She has a real affinity for Boxers.  They are just such cute dogs!

Thank you Lorie for your years of volunteering and the two amazing grant awards!

 

August 2014 Volunteer of the Month:

Rita Hofmeister

 

VOM-August

Rita Hofmeister

Rita is a hardworking, loyal, caring and compassionate volunteer that has put in countless hours over the past year as a senior companion to a number of local seniors seeking services through BRAG’s Senior Companion program. She shows she cares by being sensitive to people’s needs and serving in any capacity that is required of her. She lends a listening ear, a helping hand and a giving heart to those needing a friend to talk to, a ride to the grocery store, doctor appointment, or pharmacy; or maybe a companion for an outing to church or a lunch date.

Rita shares her flower starts, garden produce, knitting knowledge and even a hat, a pair of socks or even a sweater she has knitted with many a friend, neighbor or Senior Companion. She smiles with happiness when the neighbor children call her grandma, when a companion she visits with remembers and shares with her something they used to do long ago or starts talking when they haven’t been very vocal for awhile.

To Rita, volunteering has become almost a full tie job. She visits clients two to three times a day almost five days a week. She thinks more people should involved with volunteering in our community if they are capable; instead of staying at home doing nothing. She should know, she’s 80 years old herself and is still busy making a difference every day to those she comes in contact with. I just love her positive attitude and can-do spirit. That is why I would like to nominate her as the Cache Valley Volunteer Center’s Volunteer of the Month.

Nominated by:
Sandy Shaw, Cache Valley Volunteer Center staff
Serves at:
Senior Companion Program

BAILEY REDRICK

During the short time that Bailey has been volunteering at the Cache Humane Society she has become a valuable member of our team. Bailey volunteers in our clinic, and as such deals with the animals medical needs, rather than taking dogs for walks, or playing with the cats. Bailey helps in keeping the clinic clean and sanitized, she is a self starter and never complains. No matter the task that she is asked to accomplish, she works hard and completes these tasks in a very timely and thorough manner. It is with great pleasure that I nominate Baily for Volunteer of the Month.

Nominated by:
Roland Bringhurst
Executive Director
Cache Humane Society
