2015 Employee Outreach

Meister Media Wraps Up 2015 Charitable Giving

Willoughby, OHIO – March 30, 2016 – “As part of a larger initiative directly linked to our core values, Meister Media strongly believes in being a positive influence in the communities where we live and work through our outreach efforts,” said Gary T. Fitzgerald, Chairman and CEO.  Last year, Meister Media’s nearly 100 employees raised more than $2,300 for Feed Lake County through bake sales, chili and soup cook-offs, Pi Day, jeans week and other fun activities. And they don’t stop there. Through the company’s employee-managed, formal outreach effort, employees continue to generously donate to local nonprofit organizations in an effort to give back to the community throughout the year. In 2015:

  • Employees donated $2, 346 to Feed Lake County, a 5% increase over 2014.
  • Six Meister Media employees participated in United Way’s Day of Caring.
  • Hundreds of chemo care items were donated to Seidman Cancer Center for Make a Difference Day.
  • Well over 100 winter items were donated to the Coats for Kids drive.
  • More than 120 gifts were provided to children in need through Meister Media’s Giving Tree program.
  • 30 employees served 800+ meals at the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen.

In addition, proceeds from other internal events helped the company collect $2,334 in 2015, a 26% increase over the prior year.
