Turning Goals Into Action
In 1992 our leadership team, then Herb and Nancy Stoller, established lasting stewardship principles. The people we work with—employees, customers, suppliers—aren’t just business associates; they are our business family and community.
This perspective inspires us to create brilliant workspaces for customers and to give back to the communities we serve. In the last decade, we’ve donated time, money, and furnishings to more than 125 non-profit organizations.
Maka Maka Fun Run/Walk
For the past several years, Widmer Interiors have been proud participants in the Maka Maka, which means “friend” in Hawaiian. The Maka Maka is a 3-mile fun run/1.5 mile walk to benefit the Peoria Friendship House. Widmer and Maui Jim are more than just neighbors on North Allen. They are also a client.
We enjoy helping programs like the Peoria Friendship House, which provides a variety of services including: a soup kitchen, food pantry, well baby needs for mothers including diapers and formula, tutoring and mentoring for at risk youth, and educational classes (GED, English, & Citizenship Preparation).
Helping the Midwest Food Bank has been a tradition of ours for many years. Our employees help in collecting canned goods and going to the site to sort and stack food. Not only does it help people in the community around the holidays but all year long.
Practically every holiday season, you can find Widmer staff ringing bells for Salvation Army. Bundled up and merry!
As a company, we encourage our employees to get out in the community. We also pay wages for hours spent volunteering. From helping rebuild homes in disaster areas hit hard by hurricanes, to helping children in other countries or here locally, we strive to always be that helping hand.
