Jenna Kramer, WinR Co-Chair, and the team at Wm. Kramer & Son Inc. got involved in a project with a local Girl Scout Troop to do just that.
Girl Scouts of Western Ohio Cincinnati Troop 41356 chose a very exciting project that allowed the Troop to learn many things including stewardship to the environment and giving back to their community. This project was done in conjunction with Green Tree Plastics located in Evansville, Indiana. Green Tree’s ABC (A Bench for Caps) Promise Partnership transformed the plastic bottle caps and lids that the Troop and the Kramer Roofing Team had been collecting for months into beautiful and durable benches. The Troop was responsible for collecting, washing and weighing the bottle caps and lids. With the help of Wm. Kramer & Son, Inc., the Troop got the caps and lids over to Green Tree.
After the new benches were made, Kramer Roofing delivered them to the Saint Ignatius of Loyola School of Monfort Heights, Ohio. The benches were placed along their outdoor track. They were a great addition for the St. I’s Wildcats athletics area.
Getting involved with the young people of your community can seem like a tall order. Most people find it a bit daunting to figure out how to dive in, especially when they don’t currently have young children of their own. Wm. Kramer & Son, Inc. is a great example of using your readily available resources to make an impact and help give others a push to achieve their goals.
The benefits of what we get done when we work together can certainly be felt by those who participate, but they also radiate out beyond just those who were involved. When this kind of thoughtful collaboration is present, it is seen by others and it can inspire them to go on and do more. It has a tendency to activate a desire in people to consider how they too can get involved, and so a wonderful cycle begins. Get creative and do your part, especially now during these times when everyone could use a little help or a little push from someone.
