One of the most rewarding parts of what we do is to give back to the community and environment in ways that are beneficial and impactful to our society.
Here are some examples of how we get involved:
- Giving interview and time management tips and advice to upcoming graduates at the North Central Michigan College Career Day.
- Judging Girls Outreach Grants with the Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce. The Petoskey Chamber fundraises for and awards grants to local school-aged girls with financial need who want to try a new activity (e.g. drawing class, summer camp, etc.) but need additional resources to make it happen.
- Donating to the National Forest Foundation to offset the carbon footprint related to our operations and travel. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and take every effort to respect our planet.
- Presenting on customer service to the Dress for Success Professional Women’s Group. Dress for Success provides suits to women with limited financial resources re-entering the workforce. Their Professional Women’s Group provides training and support to help these women keep and advance their careers.
