Community Outreach

Here is a link to Lancaster Online’s article about this year’s White Out Against Hunger.  This is the second year Garber Metrology has participated in this community event.


Eagle Lacrosse Update:

Here is a picture of Senior Calibration Technician Bryan Gamble with his daughter Shaely. Bryan has been an extremely active coach of girls Lacrosse for the past several years. This past weekend one of the teams he coaches came in 2nd place after losing the Championship Game by a close 2-1 margin at a tournament held at Millersville University. Garber Metrology actively supports and encourages staff to be engaged in passions that focus on the development of youth and community outside of our daily commitment to 100% customer satisfaction here at Garber Metrology.

 

 


16 employees and spouses of Garber Metrology participated in the 2012 United Way Day of Caring Event hosted on Friday, September 7th.  Our service this year focused on the internal cleaning at an undisclosed non-profit facility that focuses on supporting and housing victims of domestic violence and their children in Lancaster County. I think everyone left with a new found appreciation for the United Way and specific organizations that serve the needs of some of the more vulnerable neighbors within our community.

We have enclosed a few pictures below of our service team as well as the website to the United Way for further interest in their outreach opportunities and impact within our local community.  http://www.unitedway.org/

 


Garber Metrology sponsors the community work and outreach of our staff as well, the feature below provides a few pictures and a description of the valuable community youth outreach provided by Metrologist Bryan Gamble and his wife Dana.

The sport of lacrosse is often referred to as the fastest game on two feet.  It’s also a sport that encompasses a solid mindset of ‘everyone belongs’ – one that builds character and confidence both on and off the field in players of all ages, size, and skill.  In 2010, two families joined forces to create the Eagle Lacrosse Club, driven by a simple desire to better their community and enrich the lives of children in Dover, PA.  It’s been a fun journey…..

Eagle Lacrosse officially entered the scene in 2011, fielding three boys’ and one girls’ team with a total of 54 players. Some may say that victories were minimal, but members of the Club disagree. Children accomplished things they once thought they couldn’t. Relationships were built. A community was strengthened. The impact was clearly visible when 96% returned for a second season!  In 2012, Eagle Lacrosse soared as membership rose to 91 players, totaling four boys’ and two girls’ teams.  Victories were recorded, tournaments were played, and the girls were proud recipients of the Lumberjax Best Sportsmanship award.

Eagle Lacrosse also believes in giving back, raising money for an official whose house caught fire and for a fellow lax player who was diagnosed with a dreadful disease. Lives have indeed been changed. The journey continues….

Another great example of a Garber Metrology Team Member giving of her time and talents to raise funds for a worthy cause in the MDA. Gail Doorley has been with Garber for nearly 25 years and is truly an endearing example of someone that is ready and willing to jump in and help where needed. Thanks Gail for your example of what servant leadership is all about!
