Children and Pets are Printing Company’s Charitable Focus
SpeedPro Imaging Northern Virginia, a wide format printing company specializing in custom visual solutions, donated $1,850 to its 2016 Charitable Partner—YMCA Fairfax County Reston, in support of its programs that help youth. In addition, the company announced that Loudoun Habitat for Humanity will be its 2017 Charitable Partner.
“We are a young company but know that giving back is important for our community’s health. This program helps us spotlight great nonprofits that are helping our region’s most vulnerable children and pets. Having a stable home and fixed address is life-changing for families, including their furry friends. Habitat makes that happen, and we look forward to supporting their work this year,” explained Roman Blazauskas, SpeedPro Imaging Northern Virginia president.
In closing out the year, SpeedPro recently presented a $1,850 check to its 2016 Charitable Partner–the YMCA Fairfax County Reston and Executive Director Joe Crawford. The funds will support the Y’s efforts to help less fortunate youth attend preschool and day camp this year. There is only one YMCA in Fairfax County serving 10,000 individuals and throughout the year, many at-risk local youth and families apply for financial assistance to participate in the Y’s early learning programs, sports, STEM activities, child care, and summer camps at little or no cost.
For 2017, SpeedPro selected Loudoun Habitat, a nonprofit that makes safe, decent and affordable housing available to people in need in Loudoun County, as its 3rd annual Charitable Partner. Since 1993, Loudoun Habitat has provided 38 homes to homeowner partners, reaching over 140 individuals, including a number of children and pets. Habitat homes are in neighborhoods throughout Loudoun County. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With the support of the community, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.
Through its Charitable Partner program, the company commits to give a portion of its gross profits to a different Northern Virginia charity each year that focuses on either children or dogs…or both. SpeedPro NOVA started the nonprofit partner program in 2015 during its grand opening. Loudoun Hunger Relief was SpeedPro’s inaugural partner, receiving a year-end donation of $1,100 to help the nonprofit reduce hunger for children and dogs through its Food Pantry, which includes a Pet Pantry.
SpeedPro NOVA’s program serves as the cornerstone of its overall community relations efforts, which includes volunteerism and sponsorships. Recognizing this commitment, SpeedPro NOVA was honored as Volunteer of the Year by the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce in 2016.
