OmnicomCares Teams Up With St. Jude’s Ranch for Children

Monday, June 14th, 2010

On June 12th, the OmnicomCares program will proudly join forces with St. Jude’s, Care Force, Perini Building Company and a host of local and national sponsors to revitalize the Boulder City St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Campus. More than 140 volunteers are expected to participate in this year’s service project, which coincides with Omnicom Group’s annual Financial Conference in Las Vegas.- Volunteers will refurbish one of the facility’s primary public buildings, including the Ranch’s Recycled Greeting Card mailroom where children recycle old greeting cards to earn money, conserve paper and spread joy.

A preview of the June 12th Service Day from OmnicomCare’s own Tracy Held.

St. Jude’s Ranch for Children was initially founded in 1967 and has provided healing and nurturing for more than 1,000 children during its celebrated history of healing and caring. St. Jude’s Ranch for Children has three campuses in Nevada and Texas whose focus is to provide nurturing in a safe home-like environment where children can learn life skills to start new lives with new chances, new choices and new hope. At the Boulder City campus, the Ranch also runs a recycled Greeting Card program where the children participate in making the new cards by removing the front of a used card and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by the children and volunteers. During this year’s service day, volunteers will painting the entire mailroom building, replacing damaged or missing light fixtures, replacing ceiling tiles, setting up new racks and re-organizing donation areas, removing trash and weeds from the property, and providing new computers and furniture for the classroom.

Video wrap-up of Saturday’s Service Project

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

We all had a great time at Saturday’s event… and as this video will prove, there is no reason why fun can’t mix with elbow grease! We’ll be posting lots and lots of pictures from the event on our Facebook fan page in the coming days and weeks, so please “fan” us there if you’re on Facebook. If not, maybe twitter’s more your thing? Whichever way you choose, please follow us to keep up on the latest news and events.

Thanks again to an amazing team of over 100 volunteers! As the school’s principal said in the previous post, you really are an extraordinary group of individuals, and make us all proud to be part of the Omnicom Family.
