As your local Vancouver plumbing company, we strongly believe in giving back to the community. Here are some details about Simpson Plumbing’s recent volunteer efforts. Stay tuned! More to come!
Simpson Plumbing in the Community
November 9th, 2019
We had the great opportunity of volunteering at Race to Remember in downtown Vancouver. Our ladies: Beth, Cheri, Emily and Marianna came out Saturday morning to set up a company booth and run one of the water stations. Beth and Emily passed out snacks at the booth to the runners once they crossed the finish line.
Meanwhile, Cheri and Marianna ran a water station, offering cups of water and gatorade to the runners at the turnaround point. Though it was a gloomy and rainy day, it was a wonderful way to join the community in remembering those who served our country!
2019 Food Drive
We also wrapped up our first food drive that we hosted as a company! On behalf of our company and those that participated from our community, we were able to give to the Family Community Resource Center of the Camas School District and the Family Resource Center at Hathaway Elementary (in Washougal).
Our donation to Hathaway Elementary helped supply 21 families representing 29 children with weekend food in their building alone. We are so happy to be helping the students in our community.
June 6th, 2019
We donated food to the St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Washougal, Washington, to support students who rely on school lunches for their main source of food. When school ends, there are a few weeks before summer programs start, which means students can’t go to school and eat. The church was collecting food to be able to send home with the students during that time, and we were happy to help!
January 17th, 2019
Vince and Christian joined Habitat for Humanity in Vancouver to work alongside other volunteers at one of their newly built houses. They became painters for a day — but of course only for a day. They’re much better at plumbing, anyway!
October 5th, 2018
On this rainy Friday, our team split up into two groups and went to work! One group picked up trash from all around the streets of downtown Camas. We picked up enough trash in the area to fill three large garbage bags!
Next, we went to the Inter-Faith Treasure House in Washougal, where we did a little bit of everything.
Beth reorganized clothing. Donovan swept floors. Kent and Bob helped move furniture and wiped down clothing racks and shelves.
Meanwhile, our other group went straight to the West Columbia Gorge Humane Society, where they dug out rocks so they would have some space out front for a small garden. A few others were loading the truck with old cat towers, scratching posts, and other things to take the dumpster.
