CLEVELAND – More than 340 employees and retirees from diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton volunteered at Camp Ho Mita Koda in Newbury on Thursday, Aug. 15, and Friday, Aug. 16, in conjunction with United Way of Greater Cleveland’s Days of Caring. Employees from eight of Eaton’s Greater Cleveland locations took part in painting, miscellaneous improvements and administrative volunteer work. This is the 13th year that Cleveland-area Eaton volunteers have participated in the two-day Days of Caring event.
“Promoting healthy communities is a vital component of Eaton’s commitment to sustainability,” said Eaton’s United Way campaign chairman and senior vice president and treasurer, Trent Meyerhoefer. “Year after year, we strive to improve the communities where we work and live. Consolidating our donations of time and financial support through the United Way allows us to help build a brighter tomorrow for our Greater Cleveland community.”
Founded in 1929, Camp Ho Mita Koda is the oldest camp for children with diabetes in the United States. As a part of the Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland, the organization’s mission is to enable children to live well with diabetes through an enjoyable camp experience.
“Ohio’s weather and the age of the camp take their toll on the buildings on our 72-acre site,” said Tina Milano, president and chief executive officer for the Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland. “We could not continue to operate the camp for these children without the kindness and labor provided by Eaton’s employees. We are deeply grateful for their commitment to our children.”Tagged with tED
