KDM P.O.P. Solutions Group, led by President Bob Kissel, operates a committee to ensure a concerted company effort is being made to raise funds for local charities and nonprofit organizations.
During the first quarter of 2012, the committee selected the American Heart Association to focus on. Various initiatives, including a bake-off, jeans day and participation in the AHA Walk in March, resulted in $2,522 raised for the organization. KDM also sponsored a table at the “Go Red for Women” event.
Habitat Humanity was a focus during the company’s second quarter, with $1,500 raised via a pie-in-the-face contest that resulted in a record number of employee participants. And when tornados struck KDM’s community in February, the Service Committee hosted a food/supply drive for Matthew 25 Ministries. Employees also put in generous volunteer hours.
The third quarter brought the challenge of filling a 16-foot truck with school supplies for Princeton City Schools, as KDM partnered with Frame USA to work on the monthlong “Fill the Truck” project. The committee hosted several fundraising events and appealed to local businesses for donations. KDM employees also contributed several thousand dollars to the effort.
Other company contributions included a $2,500 donation to the Ronald McDonald House, $2,500 to the Sisters of Mt. Notre Dame, $1,000 to Kicks for Kids, $500 to the Hope Box Derby and $1,500 to the Dan Beard Council Boy Scouts of America. KDM also donates hams to Tender Mercies each year for the holidays.
