Give For Good Louisville: Get to know some of your barista’s favorite non-profits!
The Community Foundation of Louisville hosts Give For Good Louisville, the biggest day of local giving, this Thursday September 12. With budgets being cut all around, this year’s Give For Good Louisville could be the most important ever. Through matching donation prizes, community members can have their donations made even more impactful for the groups that make our community a great place to live, work, and play. Check out #GiveForGoodLou and www.giveforgoodlouisville.org for more information.
Impact is one of the four Core Values here at Heine Brothers’, and we’re lucky to have a staff that also see that as an important part of everyday life. We asked our staff about some of the non-profits that they support, and here is what they said:
“I volunteer with Dancing Well, which organizes folk dances for veterans with PTSD/TBI & their loved ones. Community dance is something that is dear to me, & Dancing Well brings it to a group of folks who can greatly benefit from the social, physical, mental, & emotional support it provides.”
– Chet Grey
“With Big Brothers Big Sisters, there are a lot of awesome kids out there that haven’t been dealt a fair hand in life. I’m lucky to have grown up in a stable, loving home with a family that supported each other in our own individual weirdness, and it’s awesome having the chance to give individual attention to a kid that could use that support, giving them the chance to be a normal kid and seeing the progress they make.”
– Chuck Slaughter
“I also work for the Compassionate Schools Project. It’s a non-profit social emotional learning program that’s being implemented and tested in JCPS schools. Great stuff!”
– Gabrielle Ayres
“Kentucky Refugee Ministries, they work to holistically support individuals and families who are seeking shelter in Kentucky.”
– Janelle Vickerstaff
“I volunteer with the High School Ministry at Northeast Christian Church. I’m passionate about leading the next generation into a healthy relationship with the Lord & our surroundings here in Louisville! It’s incredibly important for youth to feel heard, loved, and supported by adults- especially adults that aren’t parents!”
– Rachel Salmon
“I volunteer/am a member of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth. Love em!”
– Sami Siegwald
