At Advanced Imaging Solutions, giving back to our community is at our core. This past quarter, members of our team generously volunteered time and resources to help four great programs in our area. We wanted to discuss each organization to help spread the word on what great things they are doing in Michiana.
Cultivate Food Rescue
First up, Cultivate Food Rescue. Cultivate has rescued hundreds of thousands of pounds of food and served thousands of meals to under-served members of our local community. They work with local food suppliers to salvage unserved food that would otherwise be wasted. Volunteers repackage these bulk items into individual trays. Then they freeze the packages. The recipients then conveniently warm up the trays in the microwave. The wholesome meals are well-balanced, healthy alternatives to prepackaged food.
While serving, one of our volunteer teams set a new record of 572 meals prepared in a 2-hour volunteer shift. We challenge your organization to try to beat our record!
Mishawaka Parks Department
Next on our list of volunteer opportunities was a chance to get outdoors and help Mishawaka City Parks and Recreation. Our team laid mulch, planted flowers and trimmed shrubs in two of the 26 parks that the Parks Department manages.
Center for the Homeless
In addition to our volunteer opportunities, we hosted a quarter-long collection drive to benefit South Bend’s Center for the Homeless. Members of our team donated nearly 300 cans of food and dozens of other boxed foods and critical summer items.
In their 30 years, the Center for the Homeless has served more than 55,000 Michiana men, women and children.
Our final donation opportunity for the quarter was to host a donation box in partnership with U93’s Roofsit 2019.
Since 1996, this annual week-long event has been raising funds in an effort to prevent child abuse in our community. This year, an astounding $220,000 was raised towards the cause – an all time record!
