Volunteering where it counts

EY Cincinnati employees show they care by getting involved 

Volunteers at EY’s Cincinnati office have been active in several projects ranging from leadership development to helping people with disabilities on their journey to independence.

Camp Joy offers outdoor education and leadership development. Its vision and mission are to encourage participants to become better people in order to make changes in the community and create a better world by helping people grow and succeed through lifelong experience-based learning.

The Freestore Foodbank’s vision is to lead the community to help end hunger and address its causes. EY volunteers assemble food boxes for projects such as the Senior Box program and assist with components of the food bank’s upcoming events.

Stepping Stones aids people with disabilities, helping them find their way to independence by improving their lives and enabling them to fully participate in their communities. For example, EY volunteers painted a playground and built “cubbies” for a pool house.

Gorman Farms’ mission is to support the connection between the food everyone eats, the life everyone lives and the health of the community. EY volunteers performed outdoor work there, such as weeding, planting and cultivating.

The Redwood Center guides children and adults with severe and multiple disabilities to achieve independence and reach their highest potential. EY volunteers performed maintenance work and painted, while some engaged in activities with the residents. ●
