A group of SRMC employees spent the day assembling and staging furniture, applying new bedding, hanging new shower curtains, and organizing supplies for Project Serve at the center, which is a United Way of the CSRA non-profit partner agency.
SafeHomes was established as a shelter but has become much more than just a shelter and impacts the lives of more than 2,000 individuals and their families each year. It is an agency that transforms victims of domestic violence into survivors.
The team was guided by Keisha Martin of SRMC Tank Farm Facility Engineering, who serves as a United Way volunteer.
“The work conducted annually through Project Serve helps diminish the need for area United Way agencies to allocate resources toward general maintenance and upkeep,” Martin said. “Any funding saved through the efforts our various Project Serve teams offer can go toward the agency’s day-to-day services provided to those in need. It’s a good feeling at the end of the day knowing our teams have made a difference.”
SRMC President and Program Manager Dave Olson applauded the volunteers for giving of themselves to support the community.
“The SRMC team works hard every day to keep the environment and their neighbors safe, and seeing our employees dedicate their time to help members of this same community who are victims of domestic violence speaks to their character,” Olson said. “I am greatly moved and inspired by them.”
