Volunteers gather for inaugural Community Impact Project

Jun. 20, 2021

More than 20 volunteers from six rental companies and two Cleveland area organizations joined together to take part in the inaugural Community Impact Project, a joint effort of the ARA Foundation and The Toro Company Foundation.

The group of volunteers revitalized a pollinator garden, created new landscaping beds and refurbished the baseball infield at the Broadway Club of the Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Ohio. The volunteers and equipment used for the project came from:

  • Bobcat of Cleveland – Leppos Rent, North Ridgeville, Ohio
  • Event Source, Cleveland
  • General Rent-All, Massillon, Ohio
  • Handy Rents, Eastlake, Ohio
  • Miller’s Party Rental Center, Akron, Ohio
  • Sun Rental Center, Mentor, Ohio

ARA of Ohio helped support the event and provided lunch.

The Community Impact Program involves both foundations working with local nonprofit organizations to give back to communities across the country through various rental-related projects. Three additional projects are planned for this year and will involve the collaboration of American Rental Association (ARA) members, ARA state associations, and Toro and Ditch Witch representatives in each of the select locations who will source donations and volunteers to work on the project.

The next Community Impact Project will take place in Denver on July 21. For more information, contact April Kleckner, ARA Foundation program manager, at 800-334-2177, ext. 234.
