In addition to our signature events, Bath Volunteers for Service hosts or participates in several other non-fundraising events throughout the year.
New Member Project - Akron Snow Angels
This year’s new member class has chosen to work with the Akron Snow Angels. This group’s mission is to “spread warmth and connect with the most vulnerable in our community by providing basic essentials and fostering compassionate friendships while inspiring others to do the same. They ‘Spread the Warmth’ by providing the less fortunate with warm clothing, blankets, toiletries and lunch.” Click this link to see how you can help this worthwhile project.
At least twice per year, BVS partners with the American Red Cross to host blood drives to meet the critical need in our community. Our November 2023 blood drive was a huge success with 53 units of blood collected! Thank you to all who donated blood as well as those who donated food for the food station. Save the date and watch this site for more info about our next drive scheduled for Thursday, April 11, 2024 at The Bath Church.
Fall into Nature / Spring into Nature
BVS supports these events held by our partner, the Bath Park Board, by volunteering and providing sponsorship. Fall into Nature 2023 was held October 14.
Salvation Army Bell Ringing
On Thursday, December 8, 2022, BVS had a wonderful turnout to ring the bell and fill the Red Kettle. We saw a lot of shoppers we know, recruited checks from friends and family, had a chance to catch up with some of our BVS friends and had a lot of fun!
The best news is that we collected $3,263.85 for the Salvation Army! Thank you to all who helped us have a very successful day for those in need. An added bonus was December 8th was also the “Commander Match”, so for each dollar we raised there was a 1:1 match! That made the day even better.
BVS will be ringing the bell again December 7, 2023!
