At Maidstone, community involvement plays a very important role. That's why we've instituted the Positive Work Environment (PWE). Not only do we work hard for our customers, but we also work hard for our community. We do this because we feel that it is a company's responsibility to give back to the communities where we live and work. The PWE is comprised of employees that volunteer to select and coordinate our company-sponsored fund-raising events that positively impact the quality of life in the communities in which we live and work. We may be a small company, but each year, we donate to and involve ourselves in numerous charity events.
Maidstone has contributed thousands of dollars each year to charities through employee-supported functions. These contributions touch lives through education, culture, the arts, health and human services and more. But this only begins to tell the story of each employee's charitable contributions, personal achievements and willingness to donate their time.
Here are some of the charities we've donated supplies for or fundraised for in just the last couple of years:
Maidstone has been involved with Make-A-Wish for numerous years. Each year, we have helped fulfill the wishes of a special child with our fundraising events. In just the last two years, Maidstone contributed thousands of dollars to the 48 Hours of Tristate Subaru Enthusiast Charity Drive Event, contributing to their two year grand total of $81,502 donated directly to Make-A-Wish.
