Be Part of Something Bigger

Posted on in Education/Training, Heartland 2017

 This year, all VGM Heartland attendees will be given the opportunity to build Something Bigger while donating to a worthy cause - Homes For Our Troops.

Upon arriving at Heartland Conference 2017, you’ll be given a LEGO® brick in your Welcome Bag. This LEGO brick represents a $1 donation from VGM to the Homes For Our Troops cause. However, to complete the donation, you must bring your LEGO brick to the Retail Training Lab and place it on the Something Bigger sculpture.

At the Retail Training Lab, you’ll be given the opportunity to purchase additional LEGO bricks to place as your own contribution to the Homes For Our Troops cause. You’ll have the opportunity to write your name and organization on their purchased LEGO brick and have your photo taken in honor of a fallen family member or patient.

“The HME community has always been servant-minded,” said Mike Mallaro, CEO of VGM Group, Inc. “We meet the complex healthcare and lifestyle needs of millions of people. We meet these needs with application of complex medical equipment and assistive devices, generally used in the home and which allow people to live a much higher quality of life than they would otherwise be able to do. We do all of this with tremendous compassion. That compassion carries over to the way in which we support our communities and those in need. Build Something Bigger is an accelerant to spur our industry to continue to serve those in need and maintain relevance in a changing healthcare world.”
