Warren Rupp Supports YMCA with Food Donations, Celebrates Corporate Social Responsibility Award
June 27, 2022
Warren Rupp, which received the IDEX 2021 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award, recently continued their partnership with the local YMCA for “Serving Up Summer” – a weekly program designed to help children stay active and healthy, providing relief to families in Mansfield, Ohio.
To help battle food insecurity, Warren Rupp team members will volunteer every week this summer to ensure students have food for the weekends. Five Warren Rupp team members recently volunteered for a couple of hours to fill more than 100 bags with nutritious snacks, cereal, and non-perishable food items for the kids to take home over the weekend.
Additionally, team members tended to the community vegetable garden, helped sanitize the splash pad and played kickball with local students.
The team at Warren Rupp also celebrated receiving IDEX’s 2021 CSR award and hosted a ceremony and luncheon for employees and valued community partners last week. During the ceremony, Warren Rupp’s General Manager David Llewellyn presented the YMCA of North Central Ohio with $21,000 USD to purchase a new vehicle for their growing “Y on Wheels” program. The donation will help transport staff, equipment and activities locations off the YMCA grounds.
Warren Rupp has partnered with the YMCA for at least 10 years and was named as one of the YMCA’s local “Heroes” for their overall fundraising commitment in 2018.
Since 2017, Warren Rupp has supported the Mansfield YMCA in several events including Healthy Kids Day, Y on Wheels, Veterans Breakfast, trunk or treat, and more.
