#NoMoreTrashBags: CEI Supports Comfort Cases

The mission of Comfort Cases touched CEI ‘s team. While in a search for a hand’s on a charity event to help bring together the team while giving back. Comfort Cases is an organization that focuses on giving care packages to foster kids who are going through hard transitions. They are given a backpack with items such as a blanket, pajamas, personal hygiene supplies, and a book. All of this is to help them transition with some belongings to make them feel more at home.

After hearing what the organization was doing, CEI planned a packing party as part of there 2019 Kick-Off Meeting. Not only did it help give back, but team members also had to work together packing the backpacks, creating a team-building exercise. Together we packed 20 cases for foster kids ages 10-18, we divided the cases into ten boy cases and ten girl cases.

After the meeting, the cases were shipped to the Maryland headquarters for quality inspection and distributed to other locations across the United States.

Hard Hats Against Hunger: National Roofing Week 2018

The NRCA’s 2018 National Roofing Week, encourages companies in the roofing industry to give back during the week! CEI chose to host a charity event over the week. Hardhats Against Hunger was CEI’s food drive during National Roofing Week. By teaming up with Gleaner’s Food Bank, CEI collected and donated 450lbs of food and $100 in donations to the food bank in Howell. Gleaners is a local food bank that helps support many food pantries in their effort to help those in need from going hungry. They also host there own pantry that is attached to there food bank warehouse.

Along with that, CEI donated $450 to Weekend Survival Kits, an organization that helps kids in need with meals and groceries to take home for the weekends. $450 equaled meals for five children for a whole year! Too many children rely on free school lunches for there meals during the day. Food shortage can make weekends and summer break hard for students. Weekend Survival Kits helps by providing meal kits to help fill this gap. Weekend survival kits use the support of the food banks to fill their bags and takes monetary donations to pick specific food items needed.

CEI was more than excited to help support both organizations in there missions to help the hungry. National Roofing Week is always a special week that brings the roofing industry together. CEI loves to help give back as a part of the week.

In February, CEI was called on to the roof of the Art Van Headquarters in Warren, MI. They were asked to do something out of the normal scope of work. CEI service crews took to the roof to help hang a poster in remembrance of Art Van Elslander.

Art Van Elslander was a Detroit icon and the founder of Art Van Furniture. Mr. Van worked his way up from humble beginning to owning one of the nations largest furniture companies. He donated a good portion of his fortune to the city of Detroit. He helped keep alive the Thanksgiving parade and well as feeding the hungry and healing the sick.

Art Van Elslander had a big heart for Detroit and will be missed greatly. CEI was honored to be apart of remembering him with helping hang the banner.
