Eric Sponauer's Story:
A hands-on approach to helping
It's early on a Sunday morning, and the sun is barely up. But Eric Sponauer is already on site at The Spring a domestic violence shelter, helping organize a diverse group of Lazydays employees who've shown up to paint the administration building. By the end of the day, Eric and his coworkers will have completed the entire 3,000-square-foot building. Next weekend, many of them will return to landscape the 6,000-square-foot grounds surrounding the complex.
Eric Sponauer is the Crown Club Delivery Foreman at Lazydays. Like many of our employees, he works hard all week, often putting in overtime to get the job done. Even with a busy work schedule, Eric still finds time to pitch in on the weekends to build a playground, paint a building or do whatever other work is required to help out children in need.
Eric is part of the Lazydays Dream Team, an informal group of employees who use their hard-earned days off to help others. Their physical contributions are over and above the financial support the Lazydays Employee Foundation provides. Although in many cases, the Foundation antes up for some of the supplies the Dream Team uses.
As Eric puts it, "It's not about the glory. We do it out of a genuine desire to help." He advises others to come out and join the Lazydays Dream Team. "If you're interested in volunteering, take action. You'll be glad you did."
