We work together to challenge and inspire each other. We are inventive and smart, thoughtful and generous. And, we believe in what we do.
Every day we operate by a common set of core values that make the right thing the first thing we do…every time
It's all the little things we do that allow us to give back and make an impact on people's lives. Here are our most recent adventures.
In 2018 we made it our mission to acknowledge stellar individuals in our community that embody our core values. With our Findaway Fund, we were able to reward 63 honorary Findawayers with over $7,000! These selfless, passionate go-getters were a true inspiration!
Our Back to School Drive was a success! Over the past two weeks, Findawayers collected school supplies for at-risk children in the Northeast Ohio area.
Some traditions mean more year after year. We are so glad we are able to make the season brighter for children by volunteering through Fostering Hope. Getting gifts wrapped and ready for kids brings out the true spirit of the season.
In one morning with Cuyahoga County Public Libraries, we sorted over 15,000 donated school supplies. The supplies were generously given to the different branches of the library by people in the community and will help hundreds of kids go back to school with everything they need to learn.
We kicked off our holiday season by volunteering with Fostering Hope at their Holiday Gift ‘n Greet events this year. Findawayers showed up for three days of party preparation and celebrations with the kids to show our love this season. A huge thank you to Fostering Hope for having us!
It’s everything we are outside of Findaway that makes us who we are inside of Findaway. Meet some of the Findawayers making it happen every day!
If you need something, a Findawayer will help, guaranteed.
“Do what’s right” is the most meaningful core value to me. This doesn’t mean do what’s easiest or most convenient, it means we are all called to have a strong moral compass that dictates all of our decisions.
Baking is something I love! Reading recipes and challenging myself to create something else to call my own inspires me.
I love traveling more than anything in the world. I’ve been to 29 states and 7 countries and plan on adding to that!
I want to put the great books I love in the hands (and EARS) of readers all over the world.
I allow myself to go on a crazy global adventure at least once a year. To experience random corners of the world, to learn as much as possible, and to embrace the generosity of humanity are the greatest treasures that I can afford.
The Chili Cook-Off is my favorite Findaway tradition. I was actually the one to initiate it in 2008 and was the very first winner. I enjoy tasting everyone’s culinary creations.
I love to build things. Whether that is digital with computers or analog with wood and steel, making is so much of who I am.
My core value? Treat everyone with respect. Being respected means you're freer to take chances and try to have an impact.
Work with passion. Then it isn’t work, but it is living. Being a Findawayer isn’t a job, but it is what I do each day. Surrounding myself with passionate people creates a positive energy for all.
Because of my education and career, I have been able to travel extensively. It has given me an appreciation for our country and for the things that make people unique.
Whether it's family, music, painting, acting, fitness, or any other passion, Findawayers are encouraged to explore and share their passions. We care about one another.
