Epitec is pleased to announce that we have been honored by Vista Maria as Outstanding Corporate Partner of 2017. We are so excited to earn this designation. Epitec has been partnering with Vista Maria since 2003, and this is our second time garnering this prestigious designation.
Vista Maria is the largest non-profit residents and community-based treatment agency for abused and neglected girls in Michigan. Girls, ages 11-17, in need of mental health or substance abuse treatment, trauma recovery or other psychosocial issues help rely on Vista Maria. Throughout the years, Epitec has proudly donated and assisted to Vista Maria’s mission of positively affecting vulnerable youth.
In 2017, as the presenting sponsor of Vista Maria’s Dolly Drive, we helped bring awareness to the agency’s cause while raising almost $17,000 and collecting approximately 750 dolls, stuffed animals or action figures for youth in Vista Maria’s care. Epitec is proud to once again, be the presenting sponsor for the 2018 Dolly Drive.
Epitec’s involvement went well beyond our sponsorship and Dolly Drive donations. For the holidays, we collected and delivered gifts for an entire hall, providing “supreme stocking” filled with MP3 players, fleece blankets, electric shavers and other everyday necessities to help boost self-esteem among the young women. In addition, we support Vista Maria READS, a literacy program that brings books to the residents on campus every month.
The award was bestowed at an appreciation breakfast, on June 22, at the Dearborn Inn. Many Epitec employees and Vista Maria representatives were present.
This is the latest of many awards Epitec has received over the years. And, like every award we receive, we owe it to our hardworking and talented staff. They make us what we are.
