The Importance of Giving Back to Our Community
Our team embraces this important life lesson: “No matter how tough you think your life is, there’s always someone who has to face challenges that are even tougher than yours.”
Since 2009, GMI has concentrated our giving on the needs of our community and nationwide. We contribute monetarily to various organizations throughout the year but we also roll up our sleeves and get downright dirty, too.
Chester County Food Bank
Chester County Food Bank takes a holistic approach to combating food insecurity through four major pathways. While they distribute nutritious foods through their network of agencies, they go beyond hunger with wellness, education, and gardening initiatives to strengthen the community and build community engagement.
Our employees assisted with building a community garden in the Senior Development.
Good Samaritan Services
Serving over 500 citizens, Good Samaritan Services compassionately responds to homelessness and poverty through a unique and personalized approach to help our neighbors journey from crisis to stability.
GMI volunteers cleaned and painted the interior and exterior of their Phoenixville facilities.
Phoenixville Area Community Services
Since 1972, Phoenixville Area Community Services (PACS) has been dedicated to helping people get through difficult or challenging periods in their lives. Emergency assistance is provided through food distribution and Information & Referral services that help get their clients back on their feet.
We collect food donations several times of the year and participate in "Operation Holiday"—adopting multiple families and providing them Christmas gifts—every year.
Annual Community Shred Event
We started our Shred Event in 2018 and it was a smashing success! Folks from all over bring non-perishable food items and in return can shred personal documents for FREE. We also raffle off prizes as a way to thank the community for participating in giving back to a local charitable organization. Shred Events are held annually in October. We hope to see you at our next event.
