Giving back to the community is one of the values that shapes the strong culture at Matt’s Automotive. Their organization is involved in giving, volunteerism, and donating goods for Giving Hearts Day. Matt’s Automotive financially supports charities near and dear to their hearts, invites employees, business partners, and clients to get involved (even putting Giving Hearts Day invitations into each vehicle they service!), and ran a “goods” campaign that offered a free oil change for those who brought in a bag of groceries for those in need.
Thunder Coffee exists to bring people together over community-driven coffee. This crew not only talks the talk, they walk the WALK. Thunder Coffee continues to foster community by: partnering with local schools to teach students about giving, inviting elementary students to color coffee sleeves of kindness for GHD, and donating dollars to causes near and dear to their heart. This year, Thunder Coffee is busy at their coffee roastery developing a one-of-a-kind “Giving Hearts Day Roast”. A percentage of sales from these limited edition beans will support local charities.
