Sunday, Metro Walls was proud to jump on the bus joining twenty-five other local businesses for the conclusion of Granite United Ways 2016 “Get on the Bus” Stebbins Family Challenge, led by PROCON owners, Sally and Mark Stebbins.
Metro Walls, Exterior Designs, Inc. and Atlantic Prefab teamed for our 2nd Annual campaign to benefit Granite United Way. We're proud to announce that with the help of our employees we were able to meet our goal by raising $20,000! Granite United Way improves the lives of countless people in our communities each year when we collectively make the decision to help.
Last weekend Metro Walls, Atlantic Prefab, and Exterior Designs came together for our first annual company outing! Hosted at Atlantic Prefab's new location in Wilton, NH, family and friends came together to celebrate with yard games, delicious BBQ provided by Alan's of Boscawen, a bouncy house for the kids, and classic hits played live by the JP and Friends Band. With more than 200 guests we shared laughs and a day of fun, food, and festivity. Thanks to everyone who could join us, and we look forward to seeing you all this winter for our annual holiday gathering!
“As a member of the New Hampshire community for more than 80 years, we are extremely grateful for the support we have received along the way from businesses and individuals who have joined us in our critical work of serving people with disabilities or special needs,” said Easterseals NH President & CEO Larry Gammon. “Our friends at Metro Walls have truly shown the importance of philanthropy by joining us in our renovation efforts to create a facility to meet the needs of people across the Granite State for years to come.”
We’re back! For another fun-filled New Hampshire Food Bank Mac Off event. For another year, Metro Walls employees teamed up to help fight hunger in New Hampshire.
With speed, teamwork, and donuts fueling the Metro Walls team, they competed against other local businesses to pack, seal, and box as many mac and cheese containers as possible in one hour. September marks the Food Banks ‘Hunger Action Month’ where they shift the organizations focus on finding as many stable meals as possible heading into the winter season.
Metro Walls, Inc., provider of full-service commercial framing and drywall, announced today that it has made a donation of $20,000 to The New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities NH, to assist in their hunger relief initiatives throughout the upcoming Holiday seasons. The critical funding will support the NH Food Bank’s efforts to distribute nutritious food to more than 400 partner agencies statewide. Metro Walls has made it a priority to help those in need with donations totaling $100,000 to the Food Bank since 2011.
“The NH Food Bank is very grateful to Mike Dion and Metro Walls for their continued generosity and support. On a daily basis, ten percent of men and women and thirteen percent of children go hungry in NH. Partnerships like this are critical in helping us feed people in need” said Eileen Liponis, Executive Director.
The Fall season brings with it Hunger Action Month, a nationwide awareness campaign urging businesses and residents to take action to fight hunger. In New Hampshire, the need continues to grow. One in nine New Hampshire residents—including one in five children—are food insecure, meaning they do not know where their next meal is coming from.
In 2016, the NH Food Bank distributed nearly 13 million pounds of food, which equates to more than 10.5 million meals with food distribution quadrupling over the last ten years. This year, the NH Food Bank anticipates distributing 14 million pounds of food to meet the growing need.
Metro Walls teamed up with Gutierrez Construction Co. Inc. (GCCI) to complete the construction at the new Keurig Green Mountain campus located at 63 South Avenue in Burlington. As part of a company-wide transition, the relocation from the Company's three existing Massachusetts facilities in Reading, Wakefield and Woburn is anticipated to take place in phases over the next several years and will include the move of GMCR's 519 employees in Massachusetts.
