Reaching out into our communities
We work at the office, but we don't live there. We live in
Everyone at Malace|HR take pride in our corporate efforts to support the communities that we live in with volunteer efforts that aren't just good for business, they're good for people. From packing food parcels for hungry families to staffing water stations for charity runs to playing Santa Claus for kids in need, the Malace|HR family gains much from giving, and makes every effort to support to our communities more each year.
Malace|HR Takes a Trip to the Ronald McDonald House – 125lbs Donated!
April 2012 - It was a true team effort this past month as Malace locations nationwide banded together to collect non-perishable food donations on behalf of the Ronald McDonald House in Detroit. Spearheaded by Ashley Clark, HR & Benefits Administrator at Malace HR, the collection drive resulted in a total of six boxes (over 125 lbs) of donated food goods that were dropped off for use by the organization.
"We were really pleased with the response from our staff," said Clark, who has worked to support the RMH for years. "We received donations (both food products and aluminum pop tabs) from as far away as our Memphis satellite location. We'd like to give special thanks and recognition to Account Manager Nathan Berra, Division Manager Amanda Gilbert, Chief Operating Officer Tom Rourke and President Larry Malace, all of whom went 'above and beyond' on behalf of this charity."
"Malace|HR has a long history of supporting local charities, and I knew our staff would 'step up to the plate' as always," said Risk & Safety Manager Martin DiLoreto, the company’s Volunteer Events Coordinator. "We are proud of the continuing response from our staff each time the call goes out for help."

Malace|HR Caught in Action - Recycling!
April 2012 - Malace|HR prides itself on its sustainable energy and resources policies. From using Energy Star approved lighting and computer equipment, to a robust recycling program (including paper, cardboard, plastic and glass), the staff at Malace understands that our environment is a finite resource and one that must be cared for and maintained.
"We started our recycling program in earnest over a year ago, and have achieved 100% compliance on a recurring monthly basis," said Account Manager Jessica Dues, who implemented and oversees the program. "This is truly a 'labor of love' on my part; by taking simple steps and encouraging positive behaviors, we are recycling hundreds of pounds of material that would otherwise end up wasted and in landfills. As a socially responsible company we feel it is our responsibility to do so and are pleased to set a good example for others."
Malace|HR Helps Fill Planes With 'Good Cheer'
December 2011 - A team of volunteers from the Malace|HR Corporate Headquarters joined hundreds of others for Operation Good Cheer 2011. This is a state of Michigan sponsored effort that delivers holiday gifts to thousands of children in need, many of whom reside in rural areas (the gifts were delivered by private aircraft). Team Malace spent the day at the Oakland County International Airport loading donated gifts onto privately owned small planes (whose time, fuel and use were donated by the pilot owners for the event). Malace|HR was honored to be a part of this effort and looks forward to future annual participation.

Malace|HR Packages Food for the Hungry
In September of 2011, a team of volunteers from the Malace|HR Corporate Headquarters spent a day working at the Macomb County Food Warehouse. The Warehouse takes in a regular stream of food donations from restaurants, grocery chains, charitable collectors and private individuals and distributes them (free of charge) to over 50 entities and organizations that provide meals to those in need. Because the warehouse is completely dependent on funding from the County and State, they have a limited budget for payroll and full-time employed staff and count on volunteers to remain in operation. The Malace Team sorted and packaged for shipment several tons of donated goods, and received kudos from the Facility Supervisor for their efforts.
