Naples and Bonita Springs Partner Up to Donate Happy Hope Bags to the Ronald McDonald House

Naples and Bonita Springs Partner Up to Donate Happy Hope Bags to the Ronald McDonald House

During Northwest’s Random Acts of Kindness Day, our Bonita Springs team, along with help from the Naples Service Center, made the time to put together Happy Hope Bags that were then donated to the local Ronald McDonald House.

The Happy Hope Foundation was founded in 2011 as a way to deliver hope and joy to children facing chronic and life-threatening illnesses nationwide and internationally. The purpose of the Happy Hope Bags is to engage the children in the hopes it will distract them from their long hospital stays. Our team was able to complete a box of kits for the Ronald McDonald House.

The Ronald McDonald House’s mission is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. They opened their first house in 1974 after recognizing the need for parents to stay close to their hospitalized children. Today, there are 380+ homes and other programs around the world.

Our team had a great time being able to bring some joy to the local community, no matter how small. They can’t wait until next time! If you wish to get involved with either charity, then be sure to visit both of their websites to learn more!

See What Good Deeds Our Teammates Did in March

Our Good Deed Teams were busy in March with many of our Service Centers giving back in big and small ways. See what our teams across the southeast accomplished in March:

Lanier Service Center

Lanier Good Deed Team
The Lanier team was able to partner with White Oak Learning Academy in North Georgia to donate supplies needed for the school. The team was able to donate multiple boxes of diapers.

The team was also made aware of a customer’s wife passing away, so they took it upon themselves to put together a basket of feel good items for this longtime customer.

Buford Service Center

Buford Good Deed Team
The team was able to participate in the local Housing Authority’s Easter egg hunt. The team had a blast getting involved!

Canton Service Center

Our Sawyer team was able to make time to put together meals for the local Meals on Wheels. We love to see our Family of Brands give back to their local communities.

Northwest Good Deeds Team Volunteers with Feed My Starving Children to Provide Meals for 227 Children

On March 9th, a group of Northwest Teammates met up at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds with 250 other volunteers to assist Feed My Starving Children (FMCS) fill boxes of food for children across the world. The Northwest team was able to complete 81 boxes and there was a total of 385 boxes overall, which will provide 83,160 meals to 227 children.

February 17th marks the National Random Acts of Kindness Day. It’s a day dedicated to sprinkling kindness on everyone we interact with throughout the day to bring out smiles, joy, and appreciation for all. The Northwest team looks forward to this every year! In 2022, the Good Deed Team goal was to create over 1,000 acts of kindness, and the Day kicked us off to surpass this goal by nearly double before year’s end. This year, Northwest teams made it personal, looking for small ways to make a difference at their local service centers, with their local customers and teammates, and especially within their local communities.

Here are just a few of the stories we heard from our Southeast offices on what they did for National Random Acts of Kindness Day.

National Acts of Kindness Day

Macon, Georgia

The Macon Northwest team took some time during the day to drop off cookies to eight local Fire Departments as a small token of appreciation for all they do for us and our communities.

Dallas, Georgia

Our local Dallas, GA office created customer goodie bags to say thank you to several customers we were completing service for on February 17th. The Service Professionals were able to hand deliver them to the customers.

Customer Care

Our local Customer Care team based in Marietta, Georgia wrote handwritten notes for teammates throughout the Southeast to spread the appreciation internally! Many teammates received these and were reminded how other teammates across the company are appreciative for all they do to support the team and customers.

Across the Southeast

Several service centers took the initiative to heart, writing thank you cards, paying for the car behind them when grabbing coffee or breakfast that morning, bringing breakfast in for their team, and more. What we love about Random Acts of Kindness Day is that it’s truly meant to celebrate any and everyone and showcases how the small things really do make the difference.

We are looking forward to next year’s Random Acts of Kindness Day, but more importantly, all the acts of kindness to come throughout 2023 as our teams look to create an impact in big and small ways this year.

Northwest Stockbridge Office Makes Animal Shelter Donation

Northwest Stockbridge Office Makes Animal Shelter Donation

One of the unique things about the Northwest Good Deed Team is the flexibility available to each of our 1,000+ teammates across the Southeast. While there are large, regional initiatives to be a part of, each team and teammate is encouraged to get involved in what matters most to them to make a difference in their local area.

Katie, the Stockbridge Good Deed Team Ambassador, spearheaded an initiative to donate supplies and food to the Butts County Animal Control. The organization supports the removal of stray, uncared for animals from the community to rehome them to proper shelters and ensure they’re cared for and become future pets. Katie dropped off dried and wet food, blankets, and other items as a donation.

We’re thankful for Northwest teammates who look for ways to support their local communities. We also appreciate all that the Butts County Animal Control does to help. We look forward to more initiatives to come this year!
