We’re honored to be recognized by PPAI (Promotional Products Association International) in their May feature article titled “The Heroes Among Us” which highlights companies that have established charitable giving programs or charitable outreach efforts.
The article (http://pubs.ppai.org/2017/04/the-heroes-among-us/) is a wonderful recognition for a small business trying to make an impact beyond the products/services offered. It’s a great affirmation that our global community values being a socially responsible company. Nimble is humbled by the exposure and also encouraged by it to continue efforts. “What an honor! We know we can do so much more, but are pleased to have a formal effort in place to keep momentum going. We can more easily rally internal and external support with what is in place” says Alan Haskins, CEO of Nimble Impressions.
Did you know about the philanthropic arm of Nimble Impressions? Nimble For Good was established in 2016 as a vessel for giving back and allowing our customers to contribute to worthy causes through working with us. Visit our page to learn more (https://nimbleimpressions.com/nimble-for-good/).
Great organizations like the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), National Parkinson’s Foundation, and Feed My Starving Children are current benefactors. Part of what caught the attention of PPB was the “1% of NOLS” initiative. Nimble gives 1% of Promotional Product Sales to NOLS. As a unique organization dear to the company, utilizing and encouraging sales of promotional products was a creative approach to giving back.
The drive to exceed customer expectations is inevitably connected to this recent attention. Steve Schendel, Sales Executive for Nimble believes that “our charitable efforts are an extension of our company beliefs. Authentic passion of serving people is part of our DNA.” The company is honored to recognize his contribution to the local community as a volunteer firefighter for the Apple Valley Fire Department.
We are very grateful to PPAI and PPB for spotlighting our efforts. We will use this attention as fuel to build on what has been done so far.
