Enoch Office Supports There Goes My Hero, Hero-Palooza

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Hero-PaloozaAs you may recall from previous blog posts over the years, Enoch Office is a big supporter of There Goes My Hero, an organization dedicated to raising money to fight Leukemia. Founded in in 2008 by Erik Sauer, a leukemia survivor who successfully received a bone marrow transplant, There Goes My Hero provides support for patients and families through various programs and events, like Hero-Palooza.

Did you know that just 30% of Leukemia patients are able to find a bone marrow donor?

Hero-Palooza is an annual event that seeks to match Leukemia patients with donors and change the above statistic. This wonderful event – featuring a 5K run/walk, a bike tour for cyclists, live music, a Beer Garden (plus wine), and, of course, a Crabfeast and Cookout – will take place on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 7:00am – 3:00pm at Oregon Ridge Park in Hunt Valley, Maryland. Register Now or Buy tickets to the Crabfeast! There is truly something for everyone.

Net proceeds from HERO-PALOOZA benefit There Goes My Hero’s mission to providing hope and nourishment to leukemia patients and their families. For more information, please visit theregoesmyhero.org!

 “Our mission is to restore hope to Leukemia patients and their families!”

Enoch Office participates in honor and recognition of its friend, Jenn Aparicio, wife of WNST’s Nestor Aparicio, who is well on her way to recovery after a bone marrow transplant.

We hope you will participate in this great event, but more importantly, get swabbed! Ten minutes of your time, might save a life. Every day over 6,000 men, women and children desperately search the Be The Match Registry® (operated by the National Marrow Donor Program [NMDP]) for a life-saving bone marrow donor. Yet, only 30% are able to find a matching donor. You can make a difference.

One way the organization accomplishes this is through great family events, like the two below.

Enoch Employees Deliver 3 Trucks of Clothing to the Helping Up Mission

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Enoch Office Equipment employees are proud to be part of the Enoch team, where giving back to the community is an essential part of our success. This past week, several Enoch Office Equipment employees – including Rick, Sherrie, Mike, and Alex – joined WNST radio personality Drew Forrester and delivered three trucks of clothing and toiletry items to the Helping Up Mission in Baltimore, Maryland. The Mission is a faith based initiative funded exclusively through donations. This facility seeks to help not only the homeless of Baltimore, but also those fighting addiction, or individuals struggling to get back on their feet after being released from prison.

Helping Up Mission

This is the fourth year in a row that Enoch has partnered with Forrester for this great event. It all started in 2010, when Forrester, host of WNST’s “Morning Reaction,” had a crazy idea: organize a coat drive. Forrester asked listeners to bring him coats that Friday, coats he would later hand out to the homeless of Baltimore City.

“I hoped to get 25 coats,” said Forrester, who was overwhelmed with the number of coats he received. 232 to be exact. The radio personality loaded the coats into in a truck donated by Joe Enoch, to an amazing facility called the Helping Up Mission.

Helping Up Mission

Four years later, we are still overwhelmed by the amount of clothing we receive. This year it took us three trucks to take the more than 2,000 pieces of winter apparel down to the Helping Up Mission. Wow! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. It is truly amazing to see the love and generosity of the people of Maryland, especially during the holiday season that is often marred by greed and commercialism. Everyone here at Enoch would like to thank you again for your generous donations!

If you have any questions or want to know how to get involved with the Helping Up Mission, contact Enoch by calling (410) 561-7600 or click here today!

Enoch Partners with WNST to Collect Coats for the Helping Up Mission

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

As we have for the past several years, Enoch Office Equipment is again partnering with Drew Forrester and Glenn Clark from WNST to collect coats, hats, gloves, socks, and other cold weather gear for the Helping Up Mission. There will be two large collection boxes at Enoch: 2400 York Road in Timonium, Maryland. These will be located in our showroom on the second floor and in our kitchen area on the first floor.

“Remember they also love to receive ladies’ and children’s items because the men at the Mission ‘shop’ for their families from the donations we provide too,” advises Enoch’s Sherrie Jones.

All items will be delivered to the Mission the week of December 16th.

“What a tremendous, heart- warming experience,” remarked Jones after last year’s coat drive. “To see the gratitude of those receiving these [clothing] items – it is difficult to describe.”

About The Helping Up Mission:

Helping Up MissionThe Helping Up Mission is a faith based initiative funded exclusively through donations. The Mission seeks to help the poor and homeless in Baltimore through programs designed to meet their individual physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. The Helping Up Mission also assists those fighting addiction, or individuals struggling to get back on their feet after being released from prison.

“We (The Helping Up Mission) believe every man is equally deserving of our help, because every man is equally in need of God’s grace.”

To more fully understand what the Helping Up Mission is accomplishing and how your donations have helped them in their efforts, please visit www.helpingupmission.org.

Enoch, WNST, and the Helping Up Mission:

This partnership began in 2010, when Forrester, the host of WNST’s “Morning Reaction,” asked his listeners to bring him coats, coats he planned to handout to the homeless men and women of Baltimore city.

“I hoped to get 25 coats,” said Forrester, not expecting to generate a lot of interest. The final total: 232 coats! Forrester then took those coats downtown, in a van donated by Joe Enoch, to the Helping Up Mission and distributed those coats to the needy men and women of Baltimore City.

Three years later, Forrester and Enoch are still getting together each and every holiday season to collect and distribute coats to the less fortunate.

Everyone here at Enoch would like to thank you in advance for your donations!

Enoch participates in the Baltimore Running Festival for Team Best Buddies

Monday, October 14th, 2013

 

For the second straight year, members of the Enoch Office Equipment family, including company President Joe Enoch and wife Candace Enoch, participated in the Baltimore Running Festival (5K) as part of Team Best Buddies Maryland. This exciting and fun charity event, which took place on Saturday, October 12, 2013, helped support the programs and services of Best Buddies Maryland, while at the same time raising fundamental awareness of its vital friendship, integrated employment, and leadership programs.

 

Team Best Buddies

Congratulations are in order for the youngest Enoch, nine-year-old Caroline Enoch, who completed her very first 5k run. Great job Caroline!

 

Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies is a vibrant, international organization that has grown from one original chapter to almost 1,500 middle school, high school, and college chapters worldwide, engaging participants in every state and in 50 countries around the world. Best Buddies Maryland directly serves more than 3,500 individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) each year, and through its programs reaches out to more than 35,000 people.

 

People with disabilities are often excluded from society because of their differences. Best Buddies was created to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with IDD.

 

Help make a difference.

Enoch supports TasteBuds, a great event presented by Best Buddies Maryland

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Enoch Office Equipment is proud to support local charities and charitable events, like the 2nd annual TasteBuds event presented by Best Buddies Maryland. Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies has grown from one chapter on one college campus to a vibrant international organization, impacting more than 350,000 people every year. The mission of Best Buddies is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

TasteBuds, in its simplest form, is a fundraising event presented by Best Buddies. But TasteBuds is so much more than that. First, this great event brings people together, many for the first time, to witness the magic of the life-changing friendships Best Buddies strives for. Secondly, TasteBuds gives hope to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

 

“Last year was such a success that our mission was clear,” wrote committee co-chairs Scott Reber and Mike Stack. “We would make it our commitment to attempt to bring you another incredible event even more notable than last year.”

 

Well, mission accomplished. The 2nd annual TasteBuds event took place on Thursday, September 26, 2013 at the beautiful Hunt Valley Golf Club in Phoenix, Maryland. TasteBuds was a great event, allowing people to enjoy a night out together, while eating fabulous food from some of Baltimore’s top restaurants – including Mamas on the Half Shell, La Cakerie, Fusion, Towson Tavern, Tark’s Grill, the Capital Grille, and so many more – and helping to support Best Buddies Maryland.

 

“We could not have begun to do this without the inconceivable support of our local community, local businesses, colleagues, and friends,” added Reber and Stack.

 

You may notice a few familiar names among TasteBud’s host committee, including Enoch Office Equipment’s Rick Donovan, Joseph Enoch – who also serves on the 2013 Best Buddies Maryland Baltimore Advisory Board – and Joe’s wife Candace.

Enoch again partnered with WNST & Helping Up Mission this Holiday Season

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Enoch Office Equipment employee Rick Donovan once again partnered with WNST radio personalities Drew Forrester, Glenn Clark and WNST CEO Nestor Aparicio to collect and deliver coats and clothing to Baltimore’s Helping Up Mission, a faith based initiative dedicated to helping not only the homeless of Baltimore, but also those fighting addiction, or individuals struggling to get back on their feet after being released from prison.

 

Throughout this year Enoch Office was a designated ‘drop off” location for the coat and clothing drive.

 

This partnership began in 2010, when Forrester, the host of WNST’s “Morning Reaction,” asked his listeners to bring him coats, coats he planned to handout to the homeless men and women of Baltimore city.

 

“I hoped to get 25 coats,” said Forrester, not expecting to generate a lot of interest.

 

Forrester got more than he had expected – 232 coats to be exact! Forrester then took those coats downtown, in a van donated by Joe Enoch, to an amazing facility called Helping Up Mission and distributed those coats to the needy men and women of Baltimore City.

 

Three years later, Forrester and Enoch are still getting together each and every holiday season to collect and distribute coats to the less fortunate.

 

 

During a holiday season that is marred nowadays by greed and commercialism, it is nice to know that philanthropic events like this still take place. Everyone here at Enoch would like to thank you for your generous donations!

 

“Seeing the gratitude of those receiving these [clothing] items – Is just tremendous,” said Forrester.

Enoch Sponsors a Hole at the Salvation Army Play More Feed More Golf Tournament

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Enoch Office Equipment is proud to be a part of the Baltimore, Maryland community. That is why we volunteer our time to help support local charities, like the Salvation Army. In fact, just earlier this week, Enoch sponsored a hole at the Salvation Army’s Play More Feed More Columbus Day Golf Tournament at the Rolling Road Golf Club. This was the Salvation Army’s third annual Golf Tournament to benefit its Play More Feed More Program.

 

The Salvation Army, which first came to Baltimore in 1880, ministers to the moral and physical needs of all those who seek its help.  As part of its mission to serve the people of Baltimore, the Salvation Army developed its Play More Feed More Program. Six nights a week, the Salvation Army mobile feeding unit takes to the streets of Baltimore City to provide hot meals, clothing, warm blankets, and toiletries to homeless and impoverished men, women, and children.
