Garmann Miller was founded on three core values: Provide quality design, deliver exceptional service and always do what’s right. Nearly 30 years later, this client-first approach remains steadfast in our purpose to make a positive impact in the communities we serve.
One unique way the firm gives back is through the Game Changers, a dedicated team of GM employees who plan and perform philanthropic endeavors throughout the year. In June, the group implemented its Summer of Service campaign, where it challenged team members to perform 150 volunteer hours over a three-month span. The final tally of hours of service was 153, which Game Changers leader Becky Baumer is proud of.
“Our service goes beyond design,” said Baumer, who also heads Garmann Miller’s interior design department. “The hours spent giving back to our communities in so many awesome ways show how we truly embrace our purpose to enhance lives.”
Organizations that welcomed the Game Changers this summer included:
- Elida Local Schools – Elementary move in
- Allen County Board of DD – playground install
- Furniture Bank of Central Ohio – paint, assemble furniture
- The Foodbank – Montgomery County Mobile Farmer’s Market
- Win on the Wabash – Setup assistance
- Rustic Hope – Donated school supplies to them
- Kids Book Bank – Free book distribution
Through the Game Changers, GM dedicates eight hours per employee of paid volunteer time annually—that equates to approximately 500 hours of giving back to worthy causes and organizations. Collectively, GM provides volunteer time, talent and treasure to more than 100 philanthropic, educational and non-profit groups annually.
