Every year, the Monadnock United Way honors a local organization that exemplifies the spirit of the Monadnock region in their strong commitment and continued support for their local community and the MUW. This year, they chose EIM as the recipient for the Spirit of Monadnock Award!
Helping Our Local Community—19 Years and Counting!
EIM has been supporting the MUW and ‘loaning’ its employees for their annual Days of Caring for the last 19 years. From our first volunteer day helping out at the American Red Cross and Community Kitchen in 2001, to our recent 2019 trips to Monadnock Family Services and Rise, EIM values giving employees opportunities to support their local community in ways that are personally meaningful to them, whether that’s by arranging car-pooling to day of caring events or by donation matching employees who choose to pledge support during MUW campaigns.
“I’m very pleased that we had both increased employee participation and increased overall giving in our fall campaign for the Monadnock United Way,” says Heather Bell, EIM’s Vice President and Co-Owner. “I’m extremely proud to be part of an organization that values community involvement as part of the best way to do business.”
Our Current Efforts: Providing COVID-19 Relief
Coming into 2020, The Label Experts had philanthropy on our mind and were looking for new ways to support our community. We weren’t expecting our first charitable donation in 2020 to be the Monadnock United Way’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, but we’re glad we were able to partner with them again and take care of members of our community in need.
The MUW’s COVID-19 Relief Fund is providing emergency and long-term services to families of our region who have been affected by COVID-19—many of whom are facing a lack of food, safe shelter, critical services and lost wages. Click here to add your support to our community’s COVID-19 Relief Fund!
