Approximately 100 attendees and exhibitors at RIMS 2009 Annual Conference & Exhibition volunteered to build a sensory garden, gazebo and park benches for Give Kids the World Village during the third annual Aon-supported RIMS Community Service Day, on Sunday, April 19. Give Kids the World Village is a 70-acre resort that fulfills the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses and their families at central Florida’s attractions.
In a separate event on April 17, RIMS presented a donation to the Russell Home, a private, non-profit facility for severely handicapped children in central Florida, on behalf of RIMS 350+ conference speakers.
“RIMS is pleased to make contributions to organizations such as Give Kids the World Village which, like other charitable organizations today, are feeling the impact of the recession,” says Joseph A. Restoule, CIP, CRM, RIMS president and leader of risk management at NOVA Chemicals Corporation.
