The Perks of Giving Back

20160316_104116

One of the joys of being a part of a community is being able to invest and give back to the place you have lived, worked, played, and raised your family. Sometimes it’s hard to know how or where to do that.

Lately at Roland Digital Media, we’ve been led by Dave and Diane to care for a project they have birthed with the help of other members of the community – churches, civic leadership, business owners, leaders in the judicial system, and more.

It’s called Next Step for Life and will serve at-risk young women ages 18-25 in Cookeville and the surrounding areas by providing a 12-18 month transitional housing and life skill mentoring program. The goal is to provide life skill training and support to stop and prevent destructive cycles of substance addiction, abuse, and codependency, as well as to provide resources to separate from generational poverty.

By the grace and generosity of God, the house is paid for, transportation has been provided, the right staff has been put in place, and the first residents are scheduled to move in very soon.

As employees at Roland, we are all very excited to help in big and small ways. We want to invite you to join us in assisting with this work in big and small ways. Would you consider contributing to the fund that will allow this important work to sustain and grow for a long time to come?

And, because we like to add fun and cool stuff to most things we do (and because we love these things and want to give them to people), we’re going to give anyone who contributes any amount to Next Step from Mon, March 28 – Sun, April 03 the chance to win two 20 oz Yeti Ramblers with custom-designed vinyl decals (designed for you by our creative director, Shane!).*

That’s an $80 value, y’all. Our gift to you for joining us as community partners.

That’s all we’ve got friends. We love this town, we love this next generation of young people coming into adulthood and we want to make sure they have what they need to be successful and well. Let’s come together and help them do that; let’s come together to make a difference.

*You must be 18 years of age or older to enter. Winner will be chosen at random from the group of individuals who have contributed financially via the Next Step for Life website between the dates of 3/28/16 and 4/03/16. Winner will be announced on Tue, 4/05/16. It is the winner’s responsibility to respond in an adequate amount of time and pick up their prize. If winner does not respond, the prize will be awarded to the next individual chosen. Employees and contractors and family of employees and contractors of Roland Digital Media and Next Step for Life are not eligible to enter. 

By entering this contest, you completely release Roland Digital Media and Next Step for Life from all claims or actions relating to or arising from the same. This contest is not sponsored by Next Step for Life.

    Myself along with Ellen Wolfe are coordinating Celebration of local foods, a farm to fork event which is to be held on July 16, 2016 at Dogwood Park. Proceeds will be donated to Seed Fork of the Highlands, local 4-H and FFA clubs, as well as the Teens Need Training group. It’s going to be a night of good food, good friends, and bringing our community together for a good cause. I can’t wait!
