Martin Waymire Gives 2019 recipients and staff

MW Gives 2019 Wrap Up

In News by martinwaymire

‘Tis the season for giving back, and this year, Martin Waymire celebrated organizations that light up the Lansing area with their work and make Michigan a better place.

For our 10th annual MW Gives Project, our team of creators and communicators chose to support arts organizations right here in our community.

We made financial donations and volunteered our time with each organization: Peppermint Creek Theatre CompanyAll of the Above Hip Hop Academy, and the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. These wonderful groups work tirelessly to make Michigan a better place to live, work and play, just like we do here at Martin Waymire.

  • Peppermint Creek works to produce theatre that both entertains and addresses societal issues, all in an effort to make our community a more inclusive and welcoming place.
  • All of the Above Hip Hop Academy is a non-profit organization made up of artists, educators, and advocates that mentor youth, support artistic expression and serve communities as a Hip Hop Cultural resource for the purpose of youth development.
  • The Arts Council of Greater Lansing supports, strengthens, and promotes arts, culture and creativity in the Capital region.

To top it all off, this year’s recipients were invited to our office for a happy hour to connect with each other and enjoy some holiday spirits. Thanks for following along with our 2019 MW Gives Project, and remember, the spirit of giving back can make an impact year-round!
