MaintenX International Helps Make a Difference Through RFMA Gives

Share Article

The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen in South Carolina has been selected the recipient of RFMA Gives 2021, and a MaintenX VP will help project manage the charitable effort.

MaintenX is a total facilities repair company based in Tampa, Fla., that can help facility managers with all manner of services from HVAC and plumbing to roofing and general contracting.

MaintenX International will help give back to The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen as part of RFMA Gives 2021.

RFMA Gives demonstrates what is possible when we all work together, and is an incredible opportunity to unite the restaurant facility management community.

MaintenX International believes that giving back to the community is key to their success. In service of that ethos, MaintenX VP of Business Development Bill Schaphorst will represent MaintenX as a project manager for RFMA Gives 2021, the Restaurant Facility Management Association’s (RFMA) yearly charitable project.

RFMA Gives 2021 will support The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen in Rock Hill, SC. The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen provides a hot lunch, resources, and a friendly smile to those in need in the South Carolina upstate. In June 2020, the kitchen set an all-time record for meals served, due in large part to the economic and social disruptions created by the COVID-19 pandemic. These challenging times have created an even greater need for food assistance, making RFMA and MaintenX’s commitment to serve even more vital.

“MaintenX International is always ready to give back to the cities we live, work and play in, and I’m thrilled to be able to give back to my own community” said Schaphorst, who resides just a few miles north of the soup kitchen in Charlotte, NC. “RFMA Gives demonstrates what is possible when we all work together, and is an incredible opportunity to unite the restaurant facility management community. By contributing our professional knowledge to the project, we get to help the community by doing what we do best.”

As a project manager, Schaphorst will be joining two other facility management professionals - Jeff Wells, CRFP, recently retired from Bojangles and Josh Greco from 23rd Group – to do a deep dive at the facility, and determine the wish list of needs to help further Dorothy Day’s growth and ability to serve their community. While a major volunteer day is scheduled for October, and a celebration of The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen is planned for RFMA’s annual conference in Spring 2021, plans and dates remain flexible due to the ongoing pandemic.

RFMA Gives is celebrating its tenth year of remodeling or repairing a deserving charitable shelter or kitchen.
RFMA member companies donate their talents and resources to help restore the year’s selected facility. RFMA’s charitable efforts have aided organizations across the nation, including Denver’s Stout Street Foundation, Austin’s Mobile Loaves & Fishes, and Orlando’s The Daily Bread.
