Jeff, Gordon and Jim, 

You guys did an awesome job in pulling this all together! I loved working the volunteer day and can't wait until a project is sourced and approved for Orlando for 2016. Having co-chaired one of these in the past and serving on the Steering Committee for several years, these projects are special to me and quite rewarding. I wish you, the volunteers and the staff at RFMA a Happy New Year!!

 

Thanks for all you did in Murphreesboro, TN

RFMA Give Volunteer Day

Posted By Jeff Dover, CRFP, RFMA, Tuesday, September 29, 2015

"What a wonderful day!!!" Those were the words from many of the generous volunteers that showed up on Saturday, September 12th at The Journey Home (TJH) in Murfreesboro, TN for the annual RFMA Gives Volunteer Day. There were well over 100 individuals that worked diligently in remodeling both the inside and out of TJH. The activities included repainting the entire facility, remodeling offices on both floors and also in the basement, exterior landscaping, rebuilding a staircase and assembling tables.

I was truly amazed with all the work that was completed in just one (1) day. A special thanks to the Co-Project Managers, Jim Roeger (Olive Garden) and Gordon Bruner of VMC Facilities. Also thanks to the following Task Leaders:

- Keith Moore, US Exterior

- Gordon Bruner, VMC Facilities

- Brian Foster, Paint Folks

- Jack McNertney, Red Lobster

- Tommy Guerra, Water Heater Man

- John Getha, Wendy's

- Patrick Hentzen, KFC

- Brianne Rechy, Dwyer Service Group

- Tim Corcoran, Jack in the Box

- Craig Buck, Chipotle

The following companies who contributions made this event such as success are:

- Starbucks for providing breakfast

- Chipotle for supplying lunch and the materials and manpower to rebuild the rear stairs

- Benjamin Moore for purchasing all the paint

- Paint Folks for providing all the painting materials

- US Exterior for having their crew professionally paint the upper exterior of the building

- Westrock for supplying the construction dumpster

- Progressive Flooring for providing and installing new carpet in both the office areas

- Restaurant Lighting Concepts for supplying new energy efficient LED lights throughout the facility

- VMC Facilities for providing various construction materials for all the projects

- DWM for filming the activities throughout the day

- Cintas Corporation for supplying shirts, gloves, goggles, and First Aid Kit

RFMA is proud of the efforts of all the volunteers and companies that made this such a success. Even the rain held off until we were finished. Stay tuned for further updates as there are many major projects yet to be completed. My apologies to whoever I may have left out.

Again, Thank You !!
