This is our profession because it’s our passion. That goes for every person who joins our team. For all of us, it’s the fulfillment we get from helping things grow. Companies, cultures, crops, profits, the list goes on. We take great pride in the work we do and accountability for the opinions we shape. We have fun doing it. And we hope it shows.
It’s not just our brand purpose – we live it. In November 2017, we launched “Just Cause,” our community service initiative inspired by our involvement with the United Way over the last 10+ years. Just Cause began with a day dedicated entirely to the service of others in our respective communities.
Our Columbia office worked with First Chance for Children – an organization that offers early childhood programs and family resources – designing and placing stickers on books that will go out to kids in the community through Baby Bags and the Lend & Learn Libraries.
In Kansas City, we assisted reStart, Inc. – a local homeless shelter that focuses on empowering KC’s men, women, youth and families – by repainting one of the floors belonging to teen residents. We also worked with one of the youth to design a mural, which we then brought to life.
Our Red Wing team served United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha & Pierce Counties by assembling “Packs of Care” that were full of blankets, pillows, toys and more to help ease the transition for local children into the Goodhue County foster system.
And that’s just a single day in 2017. We can’t wait to see what’s ahead.
