Giving Back to Our Communities
Per Mar believes in giving back to the communities we serve by actively volunteering and giving monetary support to local organizations.
In 1980, we established our own Charity Fund, which is an internal account funded completely by employees and the company. The Charity Fund gives monetary support to organizations that work to alleviate community problems and strengthen cultural and educational programs within the communities we operate.
Since 2001, Per Mar has matched every employee contribution dollar-for-dollar, which enables all of us to do more for our communities! To date, contributions total $1.2 million and counting!
Not only do we give monetary support to organizations in our communities, but our employees fund raise and donate their time to local organizations as well.
We volunteer our time and support numerous organizations through our Charity Fund and employee fundraising efforts.
Some of the organizations we support include the American Heart Association, Junior Achievement, Rotary, YMCA, Make a Wish, Toys for Tots, Autism Society, American Diabetes Association, Mercy Foundation, Hand in Hand, and the Handicapped Development Center.
We also support Student Hunger Drives, Shop with a Cop and Run with a Cop events, museums, libraries, boys and girls clubs, senior programs, educational institutions, parks, and many more.
