Teasdale Fenton is proud to support and give back to our local community. Here are some of the programs we've supported to strengthen and rebuild our community.
Every quarter we like to give our team an opportunity to give back to the local community and worldwide through volunteer initiatives. #teasdalecares
In June of 2023, our team volunteered at A Childs Hope International and helped pack food and water tablets to support 2,160 meals! These boxes we made will then be shipped all around the world to help fight hunger and provide safe drinking water to children and families worldwide.
In July of 2022, our community in Goshen, Ohio, was hit by a tornado, devastating hundreds of people and destroying many homes and businesses. We were on scene with 1-800-BOARDUP of Greater Cincinnati & Dayton at Goshen Township Fire Station 18 to provide board-up service and temporary AC for the living quarters. At the Goshen Police Station and Administrative buildings, we provided temporary power so they could run all EMS systems, servers, and operations, as well as temporary AC due to the damage to their rooftop units. At the Maintenance Department, we provided mitigation services for the water damage that occurred during the storm. At Goshen High School, we provided temporary power to the school and AC in the gymnasium for the Red Cross and power distribution for those staying there at the shelter! At the middle and elementary school, we provided mitigation services for the rain and roof leaks. Lastly, we provided temporary power to the building for the maintenance department to be able to do their job!
Did you know 30,000 children die of hunger daily, and 4,500 die from dirty or lack of water daily? A Child's Hope International is a non-profit organization that aims to care for orphans and vulnerable children worldwide. We have volunteered with them several times through the years. In February of 2022, our team of only ten people provided 96,000 gallons of clean water, fed 200 local children, and relabeled 600 packages of cereal for local ministries! And in April of 2022, our team filled ten boxes, which fed 2,376 children!
Teasdale Fenton and 1-800-BOARDUP of Greater Cincinnati & Dayton proudly sponsor Sharonville Fire Department's ATF K9, Sonnet! We provide all food, vitamins, and minerals that she needs. Sonnet is a K9 trained in Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Accelerant Detection, which means she is trained to sniff out any accelerants to determine if a fire could have been caused by arson!
The Tri-County Soul Pantry is a non-profit founded in 1988, made up of churches and civic groups that have come together to provide services and outreach to people in our area who are in need. We held a coat drive with them, and our team was able to donate 44 coats!
The Caring Closet is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children grades K-12 in the Hamilton City School District by providing clothing and necessities to those in need. In May of 2021, we donated five boxes loaded with toiletries, new underwear, and new socks to the Caring Closet kids!
Every year we look to donate back to a local organization. In 2020, we created a Giving Tree and donated items to 3 organizations: Hope House Mission, Graceworks Lutheran Services, and St. Vincent de Paul Society, Dayton, Ohio. We are so happy we got the opportunity to contribute to these organizations, and we hope we were able to make a difference this holiday season!
In September 2021, we raised money to help support five teachers with classroom supplies!
One of the teachers, Natalie, said: "We teach a group of amazing 4th graders in a low-income urban school. Many students do not come to school prepared for their day due to financial situations at home. They are such a sweet group of kids who always pour their hearts into everything they learn. They enjoy learning about the world, STEM projects, different cultures, and reading! The items purchased will help our classrooms be able to be an environment that genuinely reaches all students to learn based on their unique learning styles. Thank you for all your support!"
