We really like smart people and good ideas. We also consider
ourselves a corporate citizen with a duty to enrich our community.
Which is why we're an avid fan, friend and member of Building
Impact, a locally born social enterprise with a model and mission
that we deeply believe in.
Armed with the theory that to engage some civic bystanders
opportunities must come to them, Building Impact brings volunteer
opportunities to office workers throughout the region. Since
meeting them in 2008 we have participated in a variety of their
programs to support the Greater Boston Food Bank, assemble
backpacks for Cradles to Crayons, and collect clothes for Goodwill.
And, several SM&ers serve on their Young Leaders Committee, and
Helene is on the Board.
Whether you are Boston-based or not, we highly recommend visiting
Building Impact's website for more information and creative ways
to support this innovative organization.
