Kansas City, MO
As part of Summit, its annual meeting, Garver hosted a GarverGives service project. Not for the first time, GarverGives partnered with Veterans Community Project in Kansas City to support homeless veterans. 200 employees volunteered at the Liberty Memorial, assembling 750 nutritious snack packs for veterans in need and raising more than $1,500 for the organization.
Birmingham, Huntsville, Franklin
What happens when you mix drones, soccer, and Garver? A whole lot of STEM fun! Employees in three Garver offices came together to raise more than $3,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Alabama's team to compete in the drone soccer tournament at the World Games in Birmingham. Not only did the students get a chance to compete in a unique esport, they also learned engineering skills geared toward careers in aviation.
Oklahoma City, OK
Garver partnered with I AM STEM to invest in the next generation of innovators through its summer program in Lawton, OK. Through GarverGives, Garver’s Transportation, Water, and Aviation Teams all led activities that demonstrated STEM concepts to 60 kids. The students explored water filtration, aerospace, roadways, and bridges. During tours of the water treatment plant and the airport, the kids interacted with real professionals in the field to see what careers in aviation, transportation, and water look like.
By supporting Truly Living Well, an organization focused on growing fresh produce in Atlanta, Garver employees want to build communities that are healthy and growing in every sense. A member of Garver’s Sustainability team stopped by to visit with farmers and to award a GarverGives grant.
