Thank you, Smartpress!
Partner: Hope House
Social responsibility in business means putting your money (and time and effort) where your mouth is. One of the charitable partners we’re more than happy to do that with is Hope House, an emergency shelter for youth who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in the southwest Twin Cities metro. We spoke with Hope House Executive Director Rodney Provart about joining forces with Smartpress and TBG.
How has TBG impacted your organization this year? Rodney Provart: “The generosity and support from The Bernard Group has again been a catalyst for positive change at Hope House. TBG has strengthened our programs and expanded our outreach, which translates to transformed lives. Smartpress’ support of our Border Battle baseball event not only provided valuable marketing support, but also heightened Hope House community awareness and provided a significant morale boost to our entire staff and volunteer team.
“The banners and table coverings added professionalism, legitimacy and excitement to the event for players, spectators, sponsors and event staff. Dedicated and supportive leaders at TBG and Smartpress have lent their time, energy and resources creating a sense of shared purpose and camaraderie that extends beyond golf and baseball events to helping us focus on transforming the lives of teens at Hope House.”
Why is it important to have a corporate partner helping to support your nonprofit organization?
“Hope House wouldn’t exist without the generosity and support of corporate partners like TBG and Smartpress – we couldn’t do it without you! It goes beyond financial support; it’s about forging a meaningful connection with a partner who shares our passion for making a positive impact in our community.
“TBG’s commitment to corporate social responsibility aligns seamlessly with our values, creating a synergy that propels our mission forward. Their expertise in printing and marketing and their passionate commitment to supporting nonprofits in the communities in which they work has been instrumental to enhancing the Hope House brand and outreach strategy.
“This collaboration not only amplifies our impact, but also opens new avenues for youth outreach, positive teen impact and Hope House sustainability.”
How will TBG’s support help Hope House make a difference in 2024?
“In 2024, the support from TBG becomes even more crucial in realizing our goal of building a new Hope House. With your continued partnership, we envision increasing our capacity and expanding the services available so we can serve more teens and their families. TBG’s financial contributions will directly fund construction, renovation and projects that’ll make a lasting difference in the lives of those we serve.
“Our partnership with TBG is not just a collaboration – it’s a shared commitment to building a brighter future for teens. Together, we are sowing the seeds of hope and fostering a community where every teen has the opportunity to thrive. As we express our gratitude for a transformative 2023, we eagerly anticipate the continued journey in 2024.”
