Since 1986, EverDry in Toledo has waterproofed over 80,000 basements throughout Ohio and Michigan. Owner Ken Rusk has been in the industry for almost 30 years, and believes deeply in local charities and continues to drive his company in the direction of giving back and making a difference in people’s lives. They have worked with The Make-A-Wish Foundation to help send local children to Disney, and even funded a humanitarian trip to Haiti where their friend Shane visited several orphanages. EverDry also works with several local charities that provide food and shelter to children in need.
Most recently, EverDry met and started raising funds for Will Jonsson. Will is just like any other 9 year old boy. He loves to ride horses, go swimming, and play baseball, but unlike most boys, Will suffered a brain injury during delivery and now lives with cerebral palsy. One of the biggest challenges for his parents was being able to transfer him in and out of their car. They started a fundraising campaign for a new accessible van and when EverDry caught wind of it they knew they could help!
They generously agreed to match any funds raised by the community, with an end goal of $22,000. Last month EverDry reached out to MobilityWorks of Toledo, and Certified Mobility Consultant Matt Roeder was able to help find the perfect vehicle for the Jonsson’s needs. After meeting with the family, Matt said, “It was definitely one of those moments that really showed me why I do, what I do every day.”
