As we’ve observed the heart-wrenching events unfolding in our country these last few weeks, we wanted to take time to reflect on how we can have the greatest impact on being a force for good in our community and beyond.
For the past 23 years, PMG has made it an ongoing practice to support local organizations in the Baltimore-Washington area through our “Spirit of Good” initiative, including financial contributions, volunteering, and in some cases board leadership.
We’ve supported Nick’s Place, a recovery home for young men battling addiction and alcoholism, Light House, a homeless prevention support center, Casey Cares Foundation, which provides uplifting programming for critically ill children and their families, and Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, among other local nonprofits.
We are now adding the Black Futures Micro-Grant Program, which supports black-owned small businesses in Baltimore and Baltimore County, to our “Spirit of Good” efforts. PMG is a small business, and we understand the positive ripple effect that a successful company can have by building strong relationships with employees and their families, customers, suppliers, and the surrounding community. We hope our donations and ongoing support for the Black Futures Micro-Grant Program can, in a small way, help support the black community during these most difficult times.
We also want to share a message of hope and healing with a gentle but firm request to eliminate hate and embrace love in ourselves and in our own families. Each of us in the PMG Family holds these words in our hearts, and we promise to continue working at making things better for all of us.
