At Rob’e Mans, we believe not only in providing you with great customer service and quality work, but also in giving our time and money to causes we care about. Our success enables us to pay it forward with donations of our time and money to the following causes:
Spring Valley School
Eddie’s own son attends the local Spring Valley School, a sanctuary for students with dyslexia, ADHD, dysgraphia, and other learning differences. In addition to supporting the school, Eddie and his wife Trish are involved with the school’s annual Feed the Need program, which provides 10,000 meals to Haiti and Birmingham. Trish served as the Feed the Need Event Director and Corporate Captain helping the school to raise $80,000 in 2015 and over $60,000 in 2016. During the summer of 2016, the couple helped Spring Valley School transition into their new school building. They had more than 150 service hours between them. Some of the activities they completed included cutting the grass and hedges, pressure washing the playground, putting up new playground equipment, cleaning, taping, putting down drop cloths, ordering supplies, painting, moving furniture, and directing other volunteers.
In March 2017, Spring Valley School took their 8-12 graders on a school trip to Washington DC. Eddie accompanied his son and served as a chaperone. In July, Trish worked closely with the BIRMINGHAM NAPA AUTOCARE GROUP to host a golf tournament benefitting Spring Valley School. In addition to working the tournament, she helped obtained sponsorships and golfers. The tournament was a success raising $12,609.17. August, we had a water filter installed in the school’s water fountain to improve the taste of the water for students and faculty. Eddie and Trish have been volunteering by cutting the grass, weed eating, blowing the parking lot, trimming trees, spraying weeds, and putting out ant killer around the school grounds. In September, we donated new double pane windows with argon gas in all the classrooms to replace the old cloudy single pane windows. The students and faculty are enjoying being able to see outside. November, Rob’e Mans added signage to the brick monument in front of the school along with a side gate in the parking lot to provide extra security. Also in November, Trish assisted with the annual school fundraiser called Circle of Giving, which raised over $59,000. During the campaign, Trish was able to work along with Protective Life employees to build an outdoor nature walking trail and outdoor classroom area.
In 2018, Eddie and Trish continue to maintain the school grounds by cutting the grass, weed eating, blowing the parking lot, trimming trees, spraying weeds and putting out ant killer. In May 2018, Spring Valley School took their 9-12 graders on a school trip to Boston, Massachusetts. Eddie volunteered to be a chaperone. The students found the trip to be both educational and fun. Also in May, Spring Valley School presented Eddie, Trish and Dylon Cleveland with the 2018 Community Partner Family Award. Trish assisted the students, parents and faculty with packing 13,000 vitamins for Children in Guatemala and afterwards helped serve the students ice cream. In June, Trish and Eddie Cleveland hosted Spring Valley School’s fishing team at their lake. The fishing team had a great time and caught over 35 fish. In July, Trish spent a Saturday painting the new classrooms and stairwells with other parent volunteers. August-October, Eddie and Trish continued to maintain the school grounds and had a plumber service the school’s water fountains in preparation of school starting. In October, Eddie and Trish donated a shipping container to be used for storing grounds equipment. Trish prepped/cleaned areas that were going to be painted on school workday and hired a crew to clean the school’s gutters. In November, Trish directed the school’s workday to complete the following projects: painting, trimming trees and bushes, changing light bulbs, assembling shelving for shipping container, repair fencing, blowing parking lot and edging the grounds. Trish assisted with the annual school fundraiser called Circle of Giving which raised over $49,000.

Soldiers’ Angels is an organization that supports our military families, deployed service members, wounded service members and veterans. Soldiers’ Angels has a campaign called Warm Feet For Warriors.

We proudly donate to this organization that works to enhance the lives of children and families in South Africa by providing the resources and education they need to improve their family situation financially, educationally, and spiritually. We started sponsoring Asemahle Yothwana from Umzimvubu, South Africa in Sept 9, 2009. The World Vision office in South Africa has informed us that Asemahle Yothwana is no longer available for sponsorship because her family has moved away from the community. We have a new precious child, Anothando Mdoyi from Mbhashe, South Africa that we will be sponsoring. Anothando was born on July 6, 2011 and lives with her grandmother. World Vision supplies family farms with chickens and seeds so they can both eat and sell eggs and food they cultivate. Each year as a family, we decide what animals or supplies we want to sponsor for that year. We have donated food, chickens, goats, ducks, rabbits, clothing, medicine, necessities and soccer balls. Through their Channels of Hope program, they address the AIDS health crisis in South Africa by empowering church leaders to provide education programs and care for people living with AIDS. World Vision also uses donated funds to help train healthcare workers, improve childhood education, and train families on how to grow small businesses.
