RMC - The Perfect Time of Year...for Beanbag Toss

By Adrienne Moulton - Marketing & Communications, RMC

 

The Holidays are the perfect time of year for lots of things … spending time with family & friends, reflecting on the past year … preparing for what’s to come in the new year. At RMC it is also the perfect time to honor our most treasured (and oft overlooked) US citizens … Military Veterans.

We are proud to announce the 3rd Annual Vets Returning Home Fundraiser for the Holiday Season. Vets Returning Home (VRH) is a Michigan based nonprofit with a mission to support American Veterans in crisis, and return to them the Stability, Pride, and Honor they deserve as they return home to Michigan.

Vets Returning Home is a non-government funded program which benefits greatly from local fundraising efforts, and new this year, RMC will be directly supporting the VRH facility, and all 43 Veterans currently housed there. We will be providing Smart Bus Passes, to help with transportation to job interviews and doctor appointments, as well as take trips to the VA and visit family. We will also be providing each Veteran with an individual gift for the Holidays. Our goal is to contribute to the stability of these Veterans and to decrease the amount of stress and worry they endure so they can focus on experiencing a Joyful Holiday Season.

As part of the effort to raise funds, on Thursday, November 30th, RMC hosted, a “Vets Returning Home Bean Bag Toss Fundraiser”, at the Project Management Institute’s Michigan Capital Area Chapter Professional Development Day at Country Club of Lansing. The goal of this effort was to encourage participants to donate $5 to toss four bean bags, and the participant with the most cumulative points at the end of the day received an RMC Gift Bag and Amazon Echo Dot. This activity attracted several individuals, including Veterans, and turned into quite a competitive event. These players’ donations coupled with the generosity of bystanders helped us raise over $200! All of the money raised as well as a 100% match made by RMC will be used to directly support the Veterans at the VRH facility.

A huge thank you goes out to all who participated in the “Vets Returning Home Bean Bag Toss Fundraiser”. The money raised from this event added to our fast growing total which includes donations from other local meetings and online donations to put us over the $500 mark!

If you would like to help support our Veterans and want to give back this Holiday Season in appreciation of their service, we welcome you to make a donation here. Every dollar donated will go directly to supporting VRH, and RMC will be making a matching donation.

Recruitment Management Consultants would like to give a sincere thank you to our Veterans and would like to thank those who have been associated with their organization this past year. RMC would also like to extend Best Wishes for a Warm and Happy Holiday Season and a New Year filled with Hope, Joy and Success.
