2017 was a big year for SoG, as we celebrated our 10th anniversary by distributing $100,000. This year, we will accept grant applications through July 2, 2018, and will announce recipients by the first of September. We then ask our partners to join us in funding those who will be benefiting, and we all start working together to raise money and items to help their cause. In early December, we will meet for a great Christmas party, and invite the grant recipient groups. The PM Company matches whatever dollars have been raised, and our gifts have increased steadily since our first year. In 2015 and 2016, we donated over $60,000 each year to area organizations. We trust that our efforts will continue to grow, as we continue our goal to give back in the most positive way.
The Spirit of Giving truly speaks to the mission of The PM Company, and to the spirit instilled in our family by our patriarch, Pat, Sr.
