October 25, 2023
Elkhart, Ind. – Lippert Components, Inc. (Lippert™), a leading supplier of highly engineered components for top original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) in the recreation and transportation product markets and their related aftermarkets, celebrates the success of the first-ever seRV Volunteer Rally held at Champions Run RV Resort in Ocala, Florida, from October 19th through the 22nd. The event brought together passionate RV enthusiasts, nonprofit organizations and community members, uniting them in a shared mission of purpose-driven travel and volunteerism.
During the four-day event, 50 attendees collaborated with rally hosts Sean and Christina Conlon of @PawsForLove, racking up over 380 volunteer hours dedicating their time to various local initiatives. Six volunteer opportunities were offered during the seRV Volunteer Rally, including donation collection for multiple needs at Interfaith Emergency Services, where over 1,017 pounds of goods were collected for their thrift store, food pantry and shower ministry. Additionally, participants joined four off-site volunteer events and one on-site volunteer event. They also contributed to multiple on-site volunteer activities, including creating nearly 150 cards for hospitalized children. The Conlons, along with their dogs Nash and Maverick, served as official seRV and Lippert Brand Ambassadors, guiding attendees in making a tangible difference in the Ocala community.
Christina Conlon, @PawsForLove, shared her excitement about the event, stating “This weekend, 50 volunteers are gathered together in Ocala, Florida, to give their time, talents and resources to give back to six nonprofits here in the community. This group of volunteers represents the heartbeat of the RV community, a group that cares deeply and shows up to help in any way they can. It’s an honor to host the first ever seRV Rally in Ocala and link arms with these amazing people to give back to these nonprofits in such a tangible way. While our goal for this rally is to spend time seRVing together, we’re also focused on helping rally attendees identify what their passion is and help them find creative ways to seRV in that capacity to continue getting them involved after this rally for many years to come!”
“seRV is about bringing people together from all over the country, encouraging them to discover ways to give back while they travel along their planned route. The inaugural seRV Rally took this to a whole new level by establishing a location and saying, ‘Come join us here!’”, said Michilah Grimes, Director of Corporate & Community Impact at Lippert. Grimes continued, “To have so many people respond and make their way to Ocala with the sole intention to “seRV” was incredible. The Conlons led efforts that truly impacted the lives of the Ocala community. I am beyond grateful for every person who put their heart into what was accomplished.”
