The Spirit of Giving Makes Our Community Great

“If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far, go together.”  These words, from an often-quoted African proverb, reflect the true spirit of community.  At Muir Omni Graphics, supporting the community is woven into the fabric of who we are and what we do – and has been since our founding more than 50 years ago.

Mary Sutton, Vice President, explains “At Muir Omni Graphics, we strive to be a good neighbor,” noting that in 2016, Muir Omni Graphics supported a variety of community endeavors that benefitted the youth of the greater Peoria area – from the Peoria Riverfront Museum to Peoria Youth Hockey, and from the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital to the Memphis to Peoria Run.

“Children are our future,” Sutton adds. “Empowering young people with the tools they need to succeed will help create a more promising future for us all.”

In addition to corporate sponsorship of community initiative, Muir Omni Graphics encourages its employees to give back too, hosting toy and canned food drive during the holiday season.

“We can all contribute something…as an organization or as individuals…in the form of time, talents and treasure,” she added. “The holiday season is a wonderful time to reflect on the power of community, express gratitude for all that we have, and recommit to continuing our good works in the New Year. In the words of artist Pablo Picasso, ‘The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.’ On behalf of Muir Omni Graphics, I wish you and yours a very happy and healthy holiday season – and encourage you to share the many gifts you’ve been given.”
