Giving Back with Hope Starts at Home
It is extremely important to our community, business and members of the Forerunner Signs & Graphics staff give back to the community. My last position was VP and General Manager of a wireless company that I took from a concept to reality. Our business was based on helping the underprivileged in communities all across our country. Now that I own and run my own business I can take control of how that’s done instead of getting bogged down in the minutia of corporate politics and agendas.
Where It All Began
I grew up in a non-profit household where my mother held several director positions over the years with United Way, the American Heart Association and eventually retired from the Ronald McDonald House. Growing up in this environment helped me realize the importance of giving back to the community and underprivileged individuals. That is the whole reason I’ve started the Hope Starts at Home program at Forerunner Signs & Graphics.
What is Hope Starts at Home?
The Hope Starts at Home program is about building partnerships and relationships that enable companies, individuals and us to produce a win/win situation for our community and those in need. We are committed to donating 10 percent of our proceeds on behalf of our partners (any partner who purchases $2,000 or more in signs in any given quarter) to non-profit organizations of their choice or ones that Forerunner Signs & Graphics has chosen to support. For partners not purchasing $2,000 or more in signs in a given quarter, Forerunner Signs & Graphics will still donate 10 percent of our proceeds to an organization from our list of non-profits.
A Win/Win for All
Who benefits from Hope Starts at Home? The real question should be, who doesn't benefit from it? When businesses and individuals learn to give back, everyone will come out on top for the better.
The Community Wins- Underprivileged individuals benefit from the donations in an effort to improve their lives. Non-profits benefit from funding in an effort to continue the amazing work they’re already doing in our communities.
Our Partners Win- By showing that they too care about the community and partner with us to make that a reality. Partners can also benefit for their business gaining trust and credibility within the community and country as a whole.
We Win- By seeing the positive impact we can make on the lives of individuals and our communities.
Give us a call today if you’d like to discuss the Hope Starts at Home program further or if you’d like to set up a face-to-face meeting to see how we can partner together. We look forward to building strong, long-term business relationships and positively impacting our communities across this great country.
