While continuing the MSI philosophy of building relationships, we also strive to help build the community by participating in the charities and organizations featured below.
MSI Sheet Metal Field Supervisor Tommy Johnson attended a concert in Orlando where the performer, Aaron Tippon, assembled a bike on stage and then donated it to the Toys for Tots Foundation through the Mayor of Ocoee Florida.
This inspirational event motivated Tommy to get more involved in the organization, and thus, helped to integrate the Toys for Tots foundation into MSI's community outreach program.
By reaching out to neighbors, friends, and local service organizations, funds are raised to purchase the bikes and necessary tools to assemble them. Then, every December, MSI associates—along with their family and friends—gather to assemble, test, and then donate hundreds of bikes to Toys for Tots, Orlando.
In 1984, a long-time client encouraged us to visit Frontline Outreach, Inc., a Christian youth and community ministry serving the urban Orlando area.
Their programs help underprivileged families and children develop leadership, entrepreneurial, and academic potential.
After meeting with Frontline Outreach's founder, C.R. Smith, our management team decided to support this commendable cause.
Initially, 25 of our associates volunteered their time to inspect the facility's HVAC systems, to help ensure proper operation and efficiency. We later engaged the Associated General Contractors of America and the Associated Builders and Contractors associations to complete specific renovations within their 45,000-square-foot building.
Throughout out relationship, we have dedicated hundreds of hours of hands-on compassionate volunteer assistance. We also remain committed to raising funds that assist in covering Frontline Outreach’s yearly operation shortfall.
To achieve this, we host an annual Charity Golf Tournament that brings together more than 200 clients, business associates, family, and friends. It has become the signature fundraising event for Frontline Outreach.
Over numerous years hosting this tournament, we have raised more than $1,800,000. These proceeds help continue the programs of Frontline, as well as support Frontline’s ongoing service partnerships such as Legends Academy.
