VT RAISES MONEY FOR CLARKSVILLE EMPLOYEES
In the month of September, substantial flooding took place across Eastern Iowa, and especially so in Clarksville. Many of the VT employees at the Clarksville, Iowa door manufacturing facility experienced substantial flooding in their homes.
In an effort to focus on the positive, the most important take away from this unfortunate event is the fact that no one was critically hurt or killed. Jason Farver, Vice President Architectural Wood Doors, said it best, “VT is not made up of people who shrink and fold under pressure moments. We actually improve, grow, learn and develop through the difficult times....and that is what we will do once again.”
A month after the flooding, in the spirit of giving, VT’s Holstein employees came together to support their colleagues who were personally affected by the Clarksville flooding by hosting a benefit. This benefit included a soup luncheon, bake sale, and a raffle drawing for a large variety of donated items.
Holstein employees raised over $5,000 from these events. Doug Clausen and family also generously matched the company’s efforts, bringing the grand total to $10,727.62. This generous donation will go to help the three Clarksville employees with the clean-up and repair efforts to their homes. VT Industries could not be more proud of the way employees came together with this cause to help those less fortunate. This just goes to show the kind of employees you find at VT!
