As Thanksgiving approaches, it is time for reflection and appreciation for the many things to be thankful for in our lives. I am thankful and appreciative of the hard work and dedication of our employees, particularly their contributions in our community. Too often we overlook the importance of companies contributing back to their communities.
This past year, eImagine employees took active roles supporting the Arthritis Society, Special Olympics of Central Indiana, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Being a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes, too often I feel alone and separated from the masses while managing the daily challenges. Witnessing companies being involved and contributing their time, talent, and treasure toward the community, you realize you are far from alone and separated. This corporate involvement instills hope in the impacted families and in many cases, positively changes the lives of those families as well as those giving their time. As Thanksgiving approaches, being a Detroit native, I’m hopeful for a Lions win, but I’m forever thankful to the individuals and companies who contribute to our community and give us all hope for a better future.
