Every year, R.V. Evans Company selects a charity to support, and this year we have chosen to support the Gary Sinise Foundation’s Snowball Express program. This program serves the children of our fallen military heroes, surviving spouses, and Gold Star families.
Snowball Express began in 2006, and Gary Sinise has personally supported their efforts for the past 11 years. Since the Gary Sinise Foundation’s inception in 2011, it has supported Snowball Express through its Relief & Resiliency Outreach initiative. In December of 2017, Snowball Express became an official program of the Foundation. Their community driven events throughout the year provide these families an opportunity to bond with the only people who can truly understand their loss: one another. Every December, the Snowball Express program hosts a four-day, fun-filled experience that brings these families together from all around the nation. Through activities and entertainment, the Foundation keeps spirits high and provides emotional healing by forming a community of strong friendships. This annual event serves as a reminder that our country will never forget our fallen heroes and the thousands of military families left behind.
R.V. Evans Company has always been committed to serving our countries veterans. In 2017, we were honored to support America Vet Dogs that trains assistance dogs for disabled men and women how have served our country. Two years ago, we rallied behind Folds of Honor and their mission to provide scholarships to children of fallen or service-connected disabled veterans. In 2014, the company supported Honor Flight as the charity of the year and welcomed home veterans from their day trip to see the WWII memorial in Washington D.C. Along with charity events, R.V. Evans Company began a tradition of holding a flag raising ceremony for Armed Forces Day each year. When asked why charities supporting our veterans and U.S. Armed Forces have been such an important part of the R.V. Evans Company’s culture, Kelly Evans proudly responded with “We have always had a passion for showing our humble support to those who have served our country both past and present. From the Veterans within our company to those in each of our communities, we owe a great deal of gratitude for their service and sacrifice in defending the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of this great nation!
