As part of our commitment to community involvement, in Q3 PMG directed an internal school supply drive to collect donations for the Twin Cities Kids in Need Resource Center (TCKINRC). Coupled with the school supply drive, PMG’s Executive Team proposed to match up to $2,500 worth of school supplies raised and donate the money to Second Harvest Heartland, an organization that provides meals to communities most in need.
Over the course of three weeks, the PMG team managed to raise a total of 278 backpacks filled with supplies and $8,817.80 in cash donations for TCKINRC. Alongside this, PMG donated $2,500 to Second Harvest Heartland.
“I was really proud to see what our organization pulled off in the little time we had,” said Paul Kelly, Office Administrator. “The enthusiasm that buzzed around the office in those weeks was so great to see! Learning about TCKINRC and the impact they have directly on our community really made it easy for all of us to jump on board.”
To wrap up the initiative, PMG employees delivered the donation to TCKINRC on August 10 and spent the afternoon working in the warehouse and packing nearly 400 backpacks to be given to kids for the 2018 school year.
“PMG and its team never cease to amaze me with their commitment to wanting to give back to the community,” said Senior Accountant, Sonya Troje. “The fundraising everyone did to be able to help ensure kids have the necessary supplies they need, in addition to the donation to Second Harvest Heartland, is nothing short of amazing! It was so much fun to volunteer and see what went into the ‘works’ for the Twin Cities Kids in Need Resource Center. Just an overall amazing experience and I feel very fortunate to be part of this amazing company & team!”
