Charitable organizations use assistance from all kinds of helping hands in their work to make their community a better place. Volunteers, donors and nonprofit promotional items come together in different ways to spread the word, fund their mission and more.
These four touching stories tell how organizations nationwide use 4imprint® one by one® grants to care for their communities. Read on to see how promotional products for nonprofits help make a difference.
Flyers connect kids with nature
The Meduxnekeag River Association protects and promotes more than 850 acres of the Appalachian hardwood forest in the Meduxnekeag River Watershed. The organization used its grant to give more than 680 children Fold Up Flyers at its annual Grand Showcase Competition. Local elementary students competed under the theme of “150 Environmental Projects – To Celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday,” and 80 students received Sports Rubber Binoculars as an award for exceptional projects.
Welcome kits show hospitality to new families
Military members frequently relocate—and the Trenton Military Family Resource Centre is there to make them feel at home. The organization hosts an annual community event where its members offer welcome kits consisting of a Slant Sportpack, bubbles and sunglasses to soldiers and their loved ones who have recently moved to the area. In addition to these promotional products for nonprofits, they also provide youth education events for kids, second-language training for adults, information about the region, and referrals to other local organizations.
Tumblers to toast volunteers
The Oak Bay Volunteer Services Society (OBVSS) has more than 200 volunteers providing free non-medical services to anyone who needs support because of mental or physical challenges or financial struggles. These volunteers help more than 550 residents with everything from rides to appointments to gardening help. OBVSS offered Basic Colour Steel Tumblers as a thank-you gift for all their hard work.
Vests make volunteers visible
For more than 40 years, volunteers at the Eastview Neighbourhood Community Centre have been striving to help area children, older adults and newcomers. The services they offer include food banks, baking programs and more. When providing food to the community, the organization has volunteers wear vests similar to the Clerk Vest. These nonprofit promotional items are used to protect volunteers’ clothing, thank them for their service, and make them easy to identify for those receiving food.
