We’ve been headquartered in Kansas City for 28 years and giving back to our community is not just important to us—it’s a part of our company culture. Each employee is given eight extra hours of paid time off each year to use toward a community service project of their choice. And throughout the year, our designated charity cadre organizes multiple events and opportunities for SMG team members to give back. From holiday gift drives for Homeless Angels to weekly reading sessions with Lead to Read KC, community involvement is one of our top priorities.
This year we went a step further and held our first annual Day of Giving. Every employee at our KC headquarters was given half the day to volunteer their time at several local non-profits. Here are a few of the amazing organizations we partnered with:
The event was a huge success, with more than 150 SMG employees spending their afternoon giving back to our community. Not only was it an opportunity to help someone out, it was also a chance for coworkers to bond outside the office and spend time with people from other departments who they don’t always get a chance to engage with. Working together to make a difference was a pretty great way to spend the day—and we’re looking forward to doing it again.
