Community Involvement and Service
We mentioned THE GRANDMA RULE® as one of our favorite core values; however, another favorite is giving back to the community. Since opening , we have worked hard to embody what this means into how we work with the west side communities.
Partnerships and organizations
We take pride in the number of charities and parishes we work with, including Grace Place, Pregnancy Center West, Bethany House Services, Cain Ministries, St Ignatius and St James parishes, and local schools. We also took a truck full of collected items to the Hurricane Katrina effort. There are plenty of families and individuals on the west side that struggle to pay the bills or put food on the table. This keeps things in perspective for our west side team that finds great satisfaction in giving back to those less fortunate or that need a helping hand to get back on their feet.
Movers for Moms® Partner
Once again, our Movers for Moms® 2017 partner is Bethany House. Bethany House Services (BHS) collaborates with others to provide a full range of housing, education, and
assistance programs to homeless and disadvantaged women and children. We are excited to start collecting essential care items for these moms which will be delivered close to Mother's Day.
CAIN Ministries is a local organization that provides meals, food and transitional housing for Women and Children. We donate a dollar to CAIN for every reply card we receive at the Hamilton-West location.
