New office means new flooring for March of Dimes
Posted on April 30, 2014 by H.J. Martin and Son
Moving to a new office often means new flooring. But when it’s an area non-profit organization doing the moving, the funds aren’t always readily available to make that improvement happen.
When the Green Bay Division of March of Dimes was readying for a shift to new workspace at 677 Baeten Road, H.J. Martin stepped in to assist. Again demonstrating an ongoing commitment to its hometown community, the company donated over $7,500 in new carpeting and employee labor.
The resulting change was remarkable. Now in place is bright, patterned carpet whose sunny tone will welcome visitors and provide an upbeat environment for March of Dimes staff and volunteers.
“The carpet looks great! We couldn’t be more appreciative of what H.J. Martin has done for us,” says Tammy DeJardin, executive director of the Green Bay Division of March of Dimes’ Wisconsin Chapter. “We rely on support from the community, and H.J. Martin really came through for us at our new offices.”
March of Dimes is a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to help moms have full-term pregnancies and to research the problems that threaten the health of babies. It has 51 chapters across the United States, including the Wisconsin Chapter.
“We feel an ongoing responsibility to stay connected to our community through work like this,” says H.J. Martin CEO Edward Martin. “We are happy to have positively impacted March of Dimes.”
H.J. Martin made contributions to more than 90 charitable efforts in Wisconsin during 2013, focusing primarily on Green Bay and the Fox Cities.
