3 Ways We Give Back to Our Community
When you choose an equipment rental company, you’re obviously looking for a reliable, reputable company; one that has the equipment you need at the right price. But do you stop to consider how they give back to the community? Work with a company that is dedicated to social responsibility as well as quality service. You’ll participate in supporting the communities where you live and work.
At Vandalia Rental, we care about our community, and we make sure to give back. When you rent equipment with us, you can feel good about choosing a company that helps local organizations. We encourage our team members to connect with their communities. This creates positive impacts in our communities through volunteerism, in-kind giving, and leadership. We know that strong communities are important and we work to pitch in wherever we can. Whether it’s through direct donations and sponsorship, participating in local events, promoting important causes, or encouraging our team members to donate volunteer hours, we want to be a true member of our community, not just a business.
Ronald McDonald House Charities
In 2018, we launched a program to benefit the Dayton Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). RMHC helps families with a child in critical care by providing comfortable lodging near the hospital. Vandalia Rental pledged to donate 10% of the revenue earned from renting our Genie SX-180 lift to Dayton RMHC. In fact, we guarantee a $5,000 minimum annual donation amount. We wrapped the Genie lift with special graphics to promote RMHC’s cause. Our team voted to support this charity that aims to improve the lives of children and families in our community.
Pink Ribbon Girls
Vandalia Rental is also a proud supporter of Pink Ribbon Girls, an organization that supports women with breast and reproductive cancers by providing meals, transportation, and house cleaning. In addition to giving back financially, Vandalia Rental has participated in Pink Ribbon Girls’ Driven by Hope program. In this program, local transportation and equipment companies use pink vehicles to raise awareness of women’s cancers. You may have seen our partially pink truck in the area.
Mud Volleyball for Epilepsy Foundation Ohio
Vandalia Rental is a Champion Sponsor of the annual Mud Volleyball tournament to benefit Epilepsy Foundation Ohio. This organization works to improve the lives of those living with epilepsy and is a local chapter of a national organization. The Mud Volleyball tournament is a fun way for the local community to support their work and is a highly-anticipated annual event in the local community.
We give back to our community to uphold the values Vandalia Rental was founded on. We have a history of building strong relationships, not just with our customers but with organizations in our surrounding communities. Other causes we support include the ALS Association, Ohio’s Hospice, United Way, Humane Society of Greater Dayton, Vandalia-Butler City Schools, and many more. We encourage our team members to give back to their communities with donation matching and events. As one team member put it in an interview, giving back to our local communities gives our staff “a sense of pride and satisfaction”.
While we are proud of our efforts to give back to the community at Vandalia Rental, we also pride ourselves on our outstanding customer service and a large selection of quality equipment to rent. Whether you need earth moving equipment, concrete tools, landscaping machinery, or many other types of equipment, Vandalia Rental has a well-maintained selection of tools for all of your needs.
