We love to volunteer and give our time, money, resources, and talents. Loyal and Authentic are two of our values at Vivid Image. Our staff is incredibly loyal to organizations in which we’re involved. Our “Community Involvement & Service” means that after volunteering a minimum of 25 hours, each of us can grant $250 to a non-profit of our choice each year. VI staff are often endeared to organizations and causes that impact our lives. We care about the organizations and dedicate many hours to support the missions that matter to us.

Jackie’s Volunteer Passions:
- Coaching 212 Soccer and Baseball teams, St. Mary’s School, & 4H
One of my favorite volunteering memories of this year was a 4H Service project that I did together with my son Brody. He was collecting food donations at our local grocery store through 4H for the Renville County Food Shelf. A Vivid Image client came through the grocery line with a cart full of items. Most people would do their personal shopping and buy a few items to put in our Food Shelf donation cart. Well, this person gave us a whole cart of donations and walked out with a couple items for himself. It was fun to see my son’s expression when he witnessed that!

Danielle’s Volunteer Passions:
- RiverSong & Heart of Minnesota Animal Shelter
While it’s often hard not to want to bring all of the animals home, it’s so rewarding to see how everyone involved with the shelter (the majority of which are volunteers) works diligently together to care for and find loving, permanent homes for so many animals.

A part of my heart remains in Haiti. Once you call people by name and consider them friends, it’s hard to wait to see them again. Haiti Kids School is doing so much to change the lives of 200+ students, providing them with an education, school nurse, and a lunch each day.
