The mission of Ridgeview Valley and the Ridgeview Valley Home Owner's Association (HOA) has always been to be as environmentally conscious as possible. With the use of underground storm water management, Ridgeview Valley is dedicated to the protection of 150+ contiguous acres of the 308 acre project. Recently, Lori Malcolm of Coldwell Banker Deep Creek Realty, the listing agent for Ridgeview Valley, was awarded the national Association of Realtors Green Designation, which provides resources to promote awareness to the unique balance of environmental responsibility and the sustainability for the future.
In 2008 the Ridgeview Valley HOA made the decision to give back to the community by allowing non-profit organizations to host fundraising events in the community's red barn. The Barn at Ridgeview Valley has become a preferred location for special cultural events, such as performances by Theatre on the Lake and The Annual Garrett Mentors Barn Dance, as well as private parties, weddings and family reunions.
All events held at the barn are by, or for a charity or non-profit, and proceeds from each event benefits the charity or non-profit entirely. In lieu of a facility charge, those holding private functions are asked to donate to a charity of their choice. With this clever way of giving back to the community, Ridgeview Valley HOA offers brides a unique venue that allows them to personalize their big day, while helping their favorite charity. In 2010 the Ridgeview Valley HOA supported donations of over $2,500 to various charities.
With their environmental tag line of "Every Little Thing Makes a Difference" the Ridgeview Valley HOA has designed a program called "Recycling for Charity", it's convenient and economical to the participants and beneficial to the recipients. To date, the Ridgeview Valley HOA is collecting soda can tabs and soup can tabs for Ronald McDonald House. In 2010, Paula Thomas, the Ridgeview Valley Home Owners Association Manager, and her family, collected 25 pounds of soda can tabs. They are hoping to exceed this goal in 2011. The tabs are collected for the aluminum value, sent to a recycling center and the funds collected help to pay for general operating expenses of each Ronald McDonald House. The Ridgeview Valley HOA is also collecting used eyeglasses on behalf of the Deep Creek Lions Club. The Lions Recycle for Sight program collects used prescription eyeglasses to send to developing countries. In addition, the Ridgeview Valley HOA is collecting used cell phones and empty ink cartridges to support efforts by the Zion Lutheran Church in Accident, Maryland. The church ships the phones and ink cartridges to The Orphan Grain Train to be used in conjunction with their many humanitarian programs. All of the above mentioned items can be dropped off at the Ridgeview Valley Preview Center during regular office hours. Although this is just a simple recycling program, the benefits are large to the recipients. Simply state, every little thing makes a difference.
