What People Are Saying

{Myself, along with the Sales Support Interns and Sales Support Representative Team had the opportunity to give back because of BVU. BVU set up a fantastic clean-up project at Huntington Beach in Bay Village, Ohio. Our team of 25 Hylanders were able to collect about 20lbs of plastic, paper, and styrofoam trash. While giving back in general is a great thing, doing so in your community makes it that much better! Thank you to all at Hyland and BVU that made the clean-up a success!

{Thank you and the team for being so great to work with yesterday. The impact you all made on those two homeowners and their yards was dramatic and I know they were most grateful. We too are very appreciative of your support and eagerness to volunteer with us in the community.

{BVU makes it easy for small nonprofits, like RePlay for Kids, to reach volunteers. The service they provide of coordinating team events and connecting us to local business is invaluable. Their services allows our small staff to focus on our mission of increasing the availability of adapted toys to kids in need.
Natalie Wardega
Director of Operations, RePlay for Kids
{Every year we do a Done-in-a-Day volunteer project called Fields for the Future. This is a project where our staff volunteers their time to renovate and beautify a baseball field in the City of Cleveland. BVU really does a lot of behind the scene work for us to set it up so that when we go out there that day, it’s really easy for people to engage and just get into the work and have a great day.
Rebecca Kodysh
Executive Director of Community Impact, Cleveland Guardians
{Community outreach has become a large focal point for our team here at OverDrive. Partnering with BVU was one of the best decisions we made this year for OverDrive, our team and the community. It has ignited our desire to give back and has helped us do it with success and impact.

{I can’t say enough how incredible the organizers of this event are for putting this together. They created such a welcoming atmosphere for the guests, who were able to stop at many different stations to receive backpacks, new shoes, clothes, undergarments, haircuts, and so much more. It was so uplifting to see the guests getting the care and attention they needed and deserved. I am so grateful to have been a part of it. I met so many new people, learned so many stories, and made new friends along the way. Thank you BVU for putting together this event, I can’t wait to participate again next year!

{I have worked the Stand Down for many years. I didn’t get to see anything else, but I felt like the guests were happy and I loved doing one meal and that they didn’t all come at once. They did not have long awful waits for food.
{This was a life changing experience for me. The BUV co-ordinated such an amazing event. I was nervous, at first, to be a personal shopper, but within minutes it turned into one of the most satisfying days of my life.
Mary Juhasz
{I was a volunteer for this event for 5 hours. The leadership did a great job communicating our responsibilities and were quick to make adjustments and changes as needed. I was pleased and happy that the event had returned. I enjoyed being part of this worthwhile and needed event for my 4th year. Thank you for all you do!

{Volunteers are a significant addition to McGregor. BVU did an amazing job coordinating all the wonderful volunteers for McGregor’s Carnival Day. Medical Mutual spent meaningful time with residents and kept residents engaged in all the fun activities. The time spent with the residents helps enhance the quality of their life by improving their mental, physical, and psychological well- being. The staff and residents at McGregor are happy to partner with BVU.
