VME SHARE

VME believes it is important to support the community in which we live and work. VME supports several organizations corporately and encourages employees to individually support local organizations that are important to them.

The VME SHARE (Simply Helping Area Resources Exist) policy outlines how VME will support our community and how VME will support employee efforts to support our community.

We’re so thankful to have the opportunity to assist families wondering “could this be Autism?!”   Because of the generous support of VME, we’re able to keep our fees very low for families who live daily with the challenges of Autism Spectrum Disorder.  1 in every 43 boys are diagnosed with Autism today.  It is a joy to assist East Texas families with early diagnosis so that early intervention can begin.  With early diagnosis, the long-term outcome for these children and their families can be very positive.
Thank you VME!

“It’s great to work for a company that doesn’t hesitate to reach out and help people in need.  I’m grateful that VME supported me and many of my coworkers to help the people of Van, Texas immediately after the devastation of a tornado that hit last year.”

“The VME SHARE program makes it easy for me to invest in my own community through our partnership with the United Way. As a result, my eyes have been opened to the needs of children living in terrible home environments right here in East Texas. I love working at a company that gives me an easy way to have a positive impact on hurting children.  Our people truly care about others – and together we’re making a difference.”
