SMX was able to give back to a community that it only recently became a part of. Our partnership with Sauder Woodworking and Manufacturing kicked off in Archbold, Ohio in July 2013, however we received such a warm welcome that we immediately felt right at home.
In an effort to give back to this community, Director of Operations Nick Radoicic, Account Manager Valerie Meyers and Account Supervisors Kevin Baez and Curtis Turner sought out to support the Archbold Community Library through five thousand dollar donation. The Archbold Community Library has moved several times since its initial opening in 1917. A new library was opened in 1940 and remained in the same building until 1995, when Sauder donated over $1.5 million to build a new building directly across the street. Library facilities nearly tripled. The new building opened in August of 1995 and was dedicated on November 12, 1995.
Days before Staff Management
SMX announced its intentions to donate, the library was denied a five thousand dollar grant to buy new children’s books, as spending for this section of the library was reduced by state budget cuts. Upon receiving the news of the five thousand dollar donation, Joyce Klingelsmith, Director of Archbold Community Library stated, “We deeply appreciate Staff Management
SMX’s desire to support the community in this way and the enthusiastic spirit in which it was given. A gift to the library truly is a gift to everyone in the community.”
On Wednesday, December 18 Staff Management
SMX held a holiday open house for Archbold associates and presented the check to Ms. Klingelsmith. Staff Management
SMX donated five hundred dollars to Sauder’s United Way Campaign as well. The holiday open house was available to all associates before or after their shifts. Open house attendees were treated to food and raffle prizes and a fun spin-the-wheel game. The event was a success as it gave Staff Management
SMX an opportunity to share our appreciation for our client, our associates and the entire Archbold community.
