As a community-focused business, the Ross Group of companies is delighted to see our associates making a difference both in and out of the workplace through our What We Do Matters (WWDM) Fund!
Ross Environmental Services Senior Communications Specialist Justis Clifford and Ross Incineration Services Welder/Pipefitter Dennis “Denny” Rourke are just a couple associates who recently made a contribution to their communities. By submitting applications to our WWDM Fund they were able to support two organizations near and dear to their hearts – the Friendship Animal Protective League (FAPL) of Lorain County and Amherst Girls Softball Association.
As a member of the FAPL’s Board of Directors, Justis received a donation from the WWDM Fund to sponsor a table for the private, nonprofit humane society’s Wags to Riches Casino Night. The affair is the organization’s largest with a fundraising goal of $60,000 and proceeds helping to continue the shelter’s mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and finding forever homes for companion animals throughout Lorain County.
Denny also gained a WWDM donation to support the Amherst Girls Softball Association and its annual Night at the Races event. This marks the second time Denny has submitted an application, over the last two years, to the WWDM Fund to support the softball association and his daughter, Britnee, who plays for a softball team within the group.
Since the fund was put into effect two years ago, 28 associates from the Ross Group of companies have received donations to support local organizations in which they or their family members are involved with.
