Q: Why do you think it is important for local businesses to give back to their community?
A: We all have a social responsibility to those around us, as individuals and as corporations. Local businesses thrive and grow when they are part of a thriving growing community. Giving back as a company builds stronger relationships with the community, customers and each other. Investing in your local community is like investing in your own home.
Q: What are some ways you give back at the holidays?
A: Giving back is a way of life throughout the year in big and little things. Two examples are Swan’s support of employee efforts in recycling and coaching a local soccer team. We sponsor local events like the International Talent Academy, Midwest Academy, and Zombie Town. Currently construction is underway for the launch of our new 6,000 square foot Carmel Business Accelerator, which will help new Carmel businesses get on their feet. This holiday season Swan will donate to those in need here in central Indiana as well as support orphanages and schools in our offshore communities.
