Community involvement means a lot us.

Where we live, where we work, where we raise our children, where we care for the elderly all begins in the community.  It’s more than a name or group, it’s a place where life happens.  Our team hopes to help to make life better for others.

As Henry Ford famously said, “A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.”

For that reason, both as a corporation, and as a team, we support several local community groups and charities.  We also encourage our employees to sponsor a charity and pay them to donate two days a year to the charity of their choice.  For our team, commitment to community means more than writing checks or payroll deductions. Twice a year a local charity is the recipient of an employee’s “Volunteer Day,’ where a team an employee invests a day of labor, including serving, building, cleaning or making other onsite improvements.  In addition to cash and sweat, the MotionSource team invests leadership in the communities they serve.

Below are some of the business, community and charitable groups our team are involved in.
