One important aspect of the BMS corporate mission is to be supportive and active members in the local community. Since 2005, BMS has been a proud corporate sponsor of the Friendship Circle Annual Walk Fundraiser called ‘Walk4Friendship’.
Aside from being an experience that builds stronger bonds between family members, the annual 5K Walk4Friendship has offered the team at Broaching Machine Specialties the opportunity to engage in helping to develop the well-being of young people in the local community.
Matt Egrin, President of BMS, personally participates in the Annual Walk Fundraiser and believes that by doing so it helps to show strong, positive support for a high-impact community organization like Friendship Circle.
About Friendship Circle
In 1994, Friendship Circle is founded with eight volunteers meeting four families in their homes every week with a mission to provide every child with special needs the support friendship and inclusion that they deserve.
Now, Friendship Circle offers more than 25 different programs for children and teens throughout the year that focus on personal development and growth.
For more information about the organization, local events, and its overall mission, please visit FriendshipCircle.org.
Resource for Finding an Organization
One challenge that a business may face is finding the right organization with the values that match its corporate mission.
Consider utilizing a free website such as www.GreatNonProfits.org. The website allows you to search by geographic location, topic, and it also shows reviews of non-profit organizations.
