CVR’s philosophy "Building Brands that Matter" inspired them to join #GivingTuesday by "Giving to Brands that Matter" and offering a local nonprofit the choice of receiving a gift of a video or a PR/social media training.
This video introduces Horizon House to the community, and provides a glimpse of the daily struggles and needs of our neighbors experiencing homelessness.
"CVR captured the reality of homelessness with an important marketing tool that we otherwise could not afford," said Teresa Wessel, Executive Director at Horizon House. "We are very fortunate and grateful to have been selected."
AWARD FOR 2017 OUTSTANDING VOLUNTEER GOES TO BETH TEX
This month, Horizon House presented the 2017 Outstanding Volunteer Award to Beth Tex. Beth, a volunteer since 2010, provided over 150 hours of service in 2017 alone!
Beth often serves as Horizon House’s personal shopper, using vouchers to go out and purchase clothing items, food and other necessities.
"After being introduced to everything Horizon House does for our neighbors, I decided once I retired I wanted to help in whatever capacity I could," Beth said. "Once I started it seemed to blossom into wanting to help whenever I could, doing whatever I could."
Some of Beth’s favorite volunteer activities include: shopping for clothes, food and household items; helping with Trivia night; and working at any outside events.
Join us in thanking Beth Tex for her dedication to serving our neighbors!
