Aviall decided to take a trip away from the office to receive a new kind of delivery. The teams at both the Human Resources and Sales department helped man GRACE resale sites, including Donation Station and GRACEful Buys.
A subsidiary of The Boeing Company, Aviall is no stranger to mastering the supply chain, with product distribution to more than 240 manufacturers generating 2,000,000 products across the world. Aviall has also been a proud sponsor of Drive into the Night, which takes place on April 21 this year.
Serving at Donation Station is popular for corporate or large groups because it allows volunteers to personally interact with donors as a representative of GRACE, as well as lend hands-on projects that directly impact families seeking assistance.
While the end goal of resale is purely missional, many are surprised to know that our resale operations function much like a business in order to turn over proceeds and material assistance to displaced families.
With such a constant influx item donations, volunteer work is crucial to the process to ensure that every day is efficient and successful. Volunteer groups with a greater awareness of the importance of resale operations are greatly valued.
Thanks to the hardworking teams at Aviall for pouring back into your local community! Partnering with GRACE with your group is simple. Start by contacting Volunteer Manager Lara Hohweiler for tailored options.
100% of all resale revenue at both GRACEful Buys locations and Style & GRACE fund GRACE programs, which provide food, clothing, medical care and shelter to families facing crisis due to limited income or recent emergency. Items collected at Donation Station are utilized for families through resale revenue or material assistance.
