In our last blog, we talked about legacies and the impact we leave behind us. Lately I've been thinking about a related idea: community. For a while communities seemed to be disappearing, becoming less unique. We are a business that doesn't just want to make a living in the community, but contribute something special, something that our neighbors and friends can be proud of. We feel like part of the Greater Des Moines Area, and have been for many years. Just like local eateries and shops give off local flavor, we want to make local products.
This extends to giving back. In the coming months we will be looking at ways to help people in need in the Des Moines area. We've had the opportunity to give back before. With the holidays (and colder weather) approaching, people will be in need of a warm heart and open hands, and we want to help out again. The same hands that craft our work can be extended to help people and make our community a better place to live and work.
