SARASOTA, Fla. (CW44 News At 10) – In a busy season where most companies are focused on generating revenue, JMX Brands decided to give back to the community. Ending a record year for the niche e-commerce retailer, JMX Brands CEO Jim Miller and Vice President Linse Miller personally offered to match employees’ gifts up to $ 1,000 and gave a business match up to $ 2,000.
In line with the company’s core value of giving, a Giving Committee was established in the Sarasota-based company in September to promote a culture of generosity at JMX Brands. The funds raised by employees will be donated to All Faiths Food Bank in Sarasota, Fla. and the Goshen Interfaith Hospitality Network in Goshen, Ind.
“Expressions of gratitude and generosity are fundamental responses that make us human,” Miller said in a statement. “We are grateful for the beauty, abundance and relationship around us – so encouraged by that gratitude we are moved to share it with others.”
In less than three weeks, 58 parent company of DutchCrafters Amish Furniture contributed more than $ 1,400, leading to JMX Brands donating nearly $ 4,000 to All Faiths Food Bank and the Goshen Interfaith Hospitality Network.
