New name, same compassion
Three community organizations in Bloomington, Indiana are the first to receive support from our newly rebranded Ardeo Cares initiative – formerly LRAP Cares.
The team came together at our Bloomington office in August to discuss the organization’s growth, exciting announcements, and new name. After the meeting, we separated into three community service teams, which served as a reminder that even though our name has changed, our values remain the same.
Josh David, Vice President of Student Service, organized the volunteer activities for the day.
“As a fast-growing business, it’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day responsibilities and lose sight of the mission that underlies everything we do – to help students and families,” David said. “By volunteering locally, we come together as a national team to reinforce our social mission and give people the opportunity to have some fun while making a tangible difference in our local communities.”
The team spent time packing easy-to-make meals for low-income students at The Community Kitchen of Monroe County, preparing fertilizer for a community orchard at the Bloomington Community Orchard, and prepping meals for low-income senior citizens at the Hoosier Hills Food Bank.
“Ardeo Cares reminds our employees, clients, and families we’re here to do good and help people reach their fullest potentials, both through our program and culture,” David said.
Nonprofits in the Lisle, Illinois and Bloomington, Indiana areas with a service project idea for Ardeo Cares are invited to contact Erin Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
