April is National Volunteer Month, although giving back to local communities is not a new concept for our team. Enhancing lives has been a priority for Garmann Miller since our founding in 1993, and it will continue this year as we celebrate our 30-year milestone.
At GM, employees are allotted eight hours of paid volunteer time annually. Recently, creative leader Jamee Thobe used a portion of her volunteer hours.
“I’m currently enrolled in Mercer County Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership in Action Class,” commented Thobe. “After visiting multiple non-profit organizations throughout the county, our group collectively agreed Hand-Up Village is a cause we’d love to support.”
Hand-Up Village is a non-profit organization that builds and maintains houses for the homeless through donations from businesses, churches and individuals, and has served more than 250 Mercer County residents since 2015. Jamee spent her time capturing photos that will be used in flyers to promote the group’s fundraising campaign.
Thobe is the face behind the camera for Garmann Miller’s recent project photography. “It’s rewarding when you can combine a personal passion with giving back.”
These philanthropic efforts will far exceed National Volunteer Month. Collectively, our firm touches over 100 organizations each year with time, talent and treasure.
