MTM Giving Supports Unlimited Play, Paraquad, and the ALS Association
Through our award-winning MTM Giving program, MTM is proud to support organizations that serve the communities our teams work and live in. With a focus on organizations that are committed to diversity, wellness, and our youth, our philanthropic efforts strive to make a positive impact on societal issues that are important to our teammates. In fact, each organization we give to is nominated by an MTM employee who is inspired by the group’s mission and efforts.
Meet some of the incredible organizations that we recently supported!
Providence, Rhode Island
Unlimited Play is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps plan, design, and build fully accessible playgrounds that allow all children—regardless of their abilities—to play together. At Anthony Carnevale Elementary School in Providence, approximately 40% of students receive special education services. The school playground could not be enjoyed by many of these students, and two staff members identified an opportunity to make a difference. The school’s physical therapist and occupational therapist teamed up to form a committee to help create a fully inclusive playground. MTM’s $2,500 contribution will help the Carnevale Elementary School Playground be a place where children of all abilities can play together safely, build friendships, and promote diversity and acceptance.
