Community Responsibility

Community Responsibility

As we reflect on the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's contributions there is no greater way to celebrate his legacy than to serve the communities where we live and work. 

That is exactly what Milone & MacBroom employees did for the seventh year in a row. The Milone & MacBroom Community Outreach Team organized a variety of community service projects in which our employees took part in. We are proud to share the extraordinary results from our Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service 2015. 

Christian Fellowship Center
The Christian Fellowship Center serves as a food pantry and provides cooked meals and food for those in need of meals in the Bristol, Connecticut community. A large group of MMI volunteers assisted in off-loading the Food Share trucks and stockpiled several thousand boxes of dry and canned food items.




Bikes for Kids

This was the fourth year a team of enthusiastic volunteers partnered with Bikes for Kids, a charity located in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, to repair used bicycles which are reconditioned and given to children in need. The vast majority of bikes go to kids in Connecticut, however, many are shipped to other countries or areas in need. 





Simsbury Volunteer Ambulance Association 

Simsbury Volunteer Ambulance Association is a nonprofit organization that provides training and paramedic services to the Simsbury, Connecticut community. MMI volunteers painted the entryway, hallway, and bathrooms to the facility, which built upon the previous years' work of painting the meeting room, living room, and kitchen with the goal of revitalizing the facility. 




South Park Inn
MMI employees and family members were excited to serve at South Park Inn in Hartford, Connecticut,which is an agency that provides outreach programs for the homeless including temporary and long term housing. The team's day of service included painting the hallways and bathrooms, cleaning the furniture in the front lobby, and organizing crafts and activities for children currently living in the shelter.




Girls Inc. of Greater Waterbury
For a second year, MMI employees volunteered at Girls Inc. of Greater Waterbury, Connecticut. The team designed and constructed several much needed improvements including two coat racks with storage cubbies for 24 girls and two separate lighted trophy display cases with storage areas for 42 girls. Girls Inc. can now proudly display the trophies it has earned in gymnastics, karate, dance, Lego robotics, and other sports.



 

St. Martin dePorres Academy

This was the first year volunteers served at St. Martin dePorres Academy located in New Haven, Connecticut. The Academy serves kids in the Greater New Haven area where there is significant rates of unemployment, teen pregnancy and crime. The MMI team assembled office dividers and painted two large classrooms and a large hallway.

 



Habit for Humanity
MMI was happy to partner with Habitat for Humanity to assist with the rehabilitation of an existing home on Berkeley Avenue in Waterbury, Connecticut. The team's work included washing walls and cleaning and painting, Thanks to the diligence and hard work of team, all scheduled work was completed and the interior of the home was transformed into a bright and clean space ready to welcome a new family.

 


Nathan Bill Community Room
The Springfield office employees assisted the City of Springfield's Park & Recreation Department and painted the community room at Nathan Bill Park in Springfield, Massachusetts. The room received a new coat of paint on the walls and ceilings and will be enjoyed by residents of the Nathan Bill community.


 

Operation Military Kids & Teen Center
Vermont office employees participated in making Valentines cards for local senior citizens and letters for veterans and military families. The cards were handmade and personalized. This service was run by the local Teen Center in conjunction with a group called Operation Military Kids in Essex, Vermont.

 

Preble Street Soup Kitchen
The Maine office employees volunteered at the Preble Street Soup Kitchen in Portland, Maine, preparing and serving over 300 meals for the breakfast and lunch shifts. They prepared over 50 bagged lunches for the organization. 

 


Neighborhood Focus
The South Carolina office employees volunteered at Neighborhood Focus, a nonprofit free faith-based out-of school- time program that provides year-round academic support, spiritual enrichment, and life skills development for under-resourced children and students in Greenville, South Carolina. The team assisted with reorganization of books and labeling shelves for the new library and crafting supplies.
