  • Vandalia Team Donates to Make-a-Wish Foundation; Helps Grant Wish of 12-Year-Old Boy

    Inteva employees from Vandalia demonstrated their dedication to community by donating $1,500 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation on June 11. The donation made it possible to grant the wish of 12-year-old Ashton, giving him the opportunity to meet Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime, and to ride the Transformers roller coaster with him.

    In order to raise the funds for Ashton, the Vandalia team hosted a pancake breakfast and sold raffle tickets. In addition to donating to Make-A-Wish foundation, the team selects a different charity each month to support. They raise the money for these monthly donations by participating in a weekly “Giving Day” in which employees are encouraged to donate a dollar to wear jeans to work.

    “We care for the world and our communities” is an Inteva core value held dear by employees around the world. Thank you to the Vandalia employees for working together to make a difference.

  • Gadsden Volunteers at United Way Day of Action​

    At United Way Day of Action, the Inteva team from Gadsden, AL  split into groups and completed work for four different agencies. One group conducted a landscape project at a local elementary school. Another group volunteered at the library where they were tasked with typing descriptions to accompany more than 2,000 old pictures. Two other groups painted at the Boy’s and Girl’s Club and a local Drama and Arts Studio.

    This event is the county's largest single-day volunteer effort in action. Hundreds of volunteers from local businesses, companies and schools fanned out across the county to help local non-profit agencies catch up on the long list of projects needing to be completed. Tasks such as painting, landscaping, cleaning and general maintenance needed attention and 16 employees from Inteva's Gadsden location volunteered to take part. Some team members even recruited their family members to help. 

    A job well done by our team members in Gadsden, Alabama.
