MaintenX firmly believes in supporting the work of nonprofits in their local communities.

As part of its philosophy of philanthropy and community involvement, MaintenX has donated $1,000 to the Skills Center of Tampa. The money will help the Skills Center, a local nonprofit, further its mission of creating academic and leadership success for youth through the power of sports. MaintenX tries to give back whenever they can, and this gift is part of its observance of National Nonprofit Day.

“I cannot express my gratitude enough for [MaintenX’s] help,” said Jenn Townsend of the Skills Center. “You are helping an amazing organization that is doing amazing things in our community!”

The Skills Center was founded ten years ago by a trio of concerned community members who, drawing on their own experience and expertise, set up a program to help at-risk youth excel both inside and outside of school. Using sports, their specialists instill children with strong values and the discipline to succeed.

MaintenX firmly believes in supporting the work of nonprofits in their local communities, and looks forward to participating in further National Nonprofit Days. However, MaintenX supports local nonprofits all year long. Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development, notes that their company tries to give to organizations committed the community whenever they can.

“Supporting nonprofits is something we think is incredibly important,” Schaphorst said. “We love when an organization asks for help and we can say yes.”

National Nonprofit Day, observed annually on August 17, was founded by Sherita Herring in 2017 “to educate, enlighten and empower others to make a difference, while acknowledging those that are in the trenches.” The Day celebrates the altruism of nonprofits along with their social and economic impact.
