First Nation Group Celebrates National Volunteer Month!

April marks the celebration of National Volunteer Month and this week is extra special as we recognize National Volunteer Week. In honor of these observances, First Nation Group has been igniting the spirit of COMPASSION and community as we take ACTION through impactful volunteerism during the month of April!

This company wide giving initiative has a goal of 500 volunteer hours, and thanks to our incredible #TOGETHERSTRONG spirit, First Nation Group has already clocked in 395.5 hours! Due to the continued support of our dedicated employees and their willingness to make an impact on causes near and dear to their hearts, we are one step closer to our goal.

Now let’s take a look at what the First Nation Group family has been up to during National Volunteer Month!

At the beginning of April, several First Nation Group employees witnessed the “Miracles on a Mountainside” in Snowmass Village, CO, by volunteering at the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic. This week-long clinic, co-hosted by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Department of Veterans Affairs, showcased the incredible passion and athletic talent of over 360+ disabled Veterans through adaptive winter sports. Throughout the event, our team members and local partners served meals to the athletes, supported multiple adaptive sporting events such as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, and connected with participating Veterans and their caregivers.

On the east coast, the Fort Myers Local Challenge team shared in our mission by volunteering at Hearts & Homes for Veterans. This organization has a mission of aiding homeless and low-income Veterans in Southwest Florida to help them out of poverty and improve their quality of life. They are committed to helping local Veterans by providing them with the necessities they need for everyday life. Our team got to work and assisted in sorting through their large inventory of donated clothing and toiletry items.

“The amount of donations Hearts & Homes for Veterans receives can be overwhelming – they are truly grateful for any help they receive. Volunteering is an act of kindness and a way to pay it forward. I believe it can humble us while making an impact on the people around us. That is exactly what we did while volunteering and we were humbled to have helped those in need while making a difference.

– Rebecca Schultz, Sales Liaison Specialist

Last week, Claire Ponder, Human Resources Coordinator, and Annabelle Whitman, Contracts Intern, put their moves to the test by teaching a dance class at Westonwood Ranch in Niceville, FL. Providing programs to teens and young adults with developmental differences by teaching life and pre-vocational skills, this organization is making a major impact. Claire and Annabelle kicked it off with a team stretch before helping to facilitate contemporary dance games, such as the “mirror game,” where participants synchronized movements with partners, promoting non-verbal communication skills and fostering a sense of empowerment through shared expression. And, to finish the class off, the group learned two line dances!

As we continue through National Volunteer Month, let’s keep the spirit of giving alive! Every hour volunteered, every act of kindness, contributes to making a positive difference in the lives of others and our communities.
