Rick Wiegand told the crowd at the 2nd Annual Garden Party that as a resident of the neighborhood MTM has the social and moral responsibility to be active in and contribute to it. MTM has been strong and active supporters of The Felege Hiywot Center where their Mission is; “We, the Felege Hiywot Center, serve urban youth of Indianapolis, second generation Ethiopians in Indianapolis, and orphans in Ethiopia. We teach gardening and environmental preservation. We encourage youth to embrace the virtues of community service. We perform this mission as an expression of our Christian faith.” At Major Tool and Machine our charitable philosophy is simple in that we support community organizations local to our campus and groups that our employees are active in. We work with well-known community partners such as Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and Indiana Blood Center as well as organizations such as Felege Hiywot Children’s Center, Oaks Academy, and local student organizations and athletic teams.” Click here to read the speech.
