TVH Americas, a global provider of quality replacement parts and accessories for the material handling, industrial, and construction equipment industries, has announced that TVH employees raised over $4,000 for Melissa’s Second Chances, a non-profit animal shelter located in Shawnee, Kansas.
As part of the Health and Wellness Program at TVH, Health & Wellness Coach Lucy DelSarto put on several events during June relating to pets including puppy therapy. During this event, Melissa’s Second Chances brought three puppies to the Olathe facility for the employees to play with during their break. Employees collected supplies for the shelter and used 8000 Health and Wellness Points to purchase Giving Cards to donate $4000 to the shelter. Employees earn these points through participating in events and challenges that can be redeemed for a variety of items, including Giving Cards.
“Employees donated a van full of items including kennels, blankets, and more. I had tears of joy flowing from my eyes after finalizing the incredible donation amount of $4,000 for Melissa’s Second Chance Animal Shelter,” said DelSarto. “The shelter was in awe and incredibly grateful as they rely on donations and this has been a financially challenging year. The ripple effect of small acts of kindness definitely made a huge impact. I’m looking forward to doing this again and making it an ongoing part of the program.” In addition to all of the donations, two of three were puppies that were adopted by employees.
The Health and Wellness Program is one of the many programs that TVH offers employees to give back to the community. TVH also has a variety of benefits that they offer to their employees, including full health care coverage, 401k matching, employee discounts, tuition reimbursement, and much more.
