Employee makes company donation to Riddle High School.

I'd been putting together a plan that would give responsibility to our employee's to participate in deciding what groups or organization recieve money or equipment donations beginning with the next calendar year budget. However, our mechanic Mike Jarvis came to me with a request recently and it was so well thought out that I agreed to start early on this idea!

Yesterday Mike used the company credit card to order bleacher seat cushions for Riddle High School with their logo on one side and our information as a sponsor on the other. These will be sold to those attending the events as a fundraiser for the school. Additionally, our investment will be returned to us over time so that we are able to reinvest in another program later! This is the kind of win-win collaboration I hope to see more of between "for profit" and "not for profit" organizations in the future. Hats off to Mike for the vision and implimentation required to put this opportunity together for us and the community, I'm proud to have him on our team.
