Giving Back

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Our community in Beatrice, NE is nothing short of amazing. We love being here. Working here. And for the majority of us, living here. It’s more of a family than a community. And as with any family, pitching in and helping out is the responsibility of every member. One of the ways we stay involved in our community is through the Exmark Community Giving Back Program. Recently, we made a $20,000 donation to Main Street Beatrice, specifically for the beautification of downtown Beatrice’s Charles Park. This helped Main Street Beatrice install a Toro irrigation system and benches throughout Charles Park. A portion of the money was used toward the park’s various operation expenses.

Now that the days are warm, you can see families out enjoying the park. That’s what it’s all about for us – not the media write-ups or pats on the back or name recognition, but giving members of our family a nice outdoor environment where they can catch up and spend time together.

Donating money is only one way of giving back to your community. If you want to donate and money isn’t an option, think about donating your time and your machines to help beautify your town. Just imagine what your local park would look like if you had a chance to cut it. A simple phone call or two to your local city office or parks and recreations office can get the ball rolling.

We’d love to hear how you give back to your community. Leave a comment below.
