14 • June 2017 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S NBM Gives Back to Local Habitat for Humanity Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver hosted two days of charity and cheer as employees of Sign & Digital Graphics' parent company National Business Media spent two days in April giving back to the local non-profit. With 29 volunteers signed up, three teams were divided over two days and pitched in on two Habitat work sites in the Denver Metro Area. NBM employees spent the day building and repairing Habitat homes. "The NBM (volunteers) were great," Habitat representative Jose Elizondo tells Sign & Digital Graphics magazine. As construction supervi- sor, Elizondo is responsible for ensuring the houses are built to code and that the volunteers have a good experience. "The day was a lot of fun. We always appreciate the help," he says. NBM's CEO Bob Wieber adds, "It's another great example of the unselfishness of our people, willing to give time and energy outside of our regular day-to-day responsibilities." Following the success of the company's volunteer efforts, NBM hopes to give back to Flatirons Habitat for Humanity, which serves the area sur- rounding the company's headquarters in Broomfield, Colorado.

Over the last two decades, Canon U.S.A. has worked together with NCMEC to help find missing children and drive awareness about child safety, and with Yellowstone Forever to raise awareness about the importance of environmental stewardship and conservation.

Canon saw the possibility to truly effect change when we started these partnerships two decades ago; realizing the impact that we have made together is extremely rewarding," says Joe Adachi, chairman and CEO of Canon U.S.A. "We are honored to work with NCMEC and Yellowstone Forever to help increase aware- ness around these matters, and drive their missions forward."
