Community Initiatives and Charitable Involvement
Source employees are committed to giving back to our surrounding communities. Annually, we participate in various community activities to help advance education, research and medicine.
Source has partnered with Read To Lead, a multi-tiered campaign that promotes literacy through reading and the vital benefits reading brings to our communities and way of life. Superior reading skills stimulate the mind, are fundamental to learning and are essential in the development of many aspects of leadership. In the immediacy of our “flash culture,” when most information is consumed via compressed snippets and sound bites and our principal distractions are video or online gaming, reading and its myriad advantages have taken a hit, and learning has suffered. Source is committed to promoting the benefits of reading to all ages and is actively working with Read To Lead to support this message. Learn more at www.ReadToLeadToday.org.
Patriot of the Year
Super Chevy Magazine, a Source Interlink Media publication, was rewarded for its charitable efforts on behalf of the Armed Forces Foundation when it was presented with the Sheldon and Dr. Miriam Adelson Patriot Of The Year Award for 2011.
The Patriot of the Year award is the Armed Forces Foundation’s highest honor for a group or organization. Editor Jim Campisano and Publisher Jim Foos accepted the award for SIM at the Armed Forces Foundation’s seventh-annual Congressional Gala at the Ronald Reagan Building.
Super Chevy Magazine conceived and spearheaded the effort to build a trio of classic automobiles that were sold at Barrett-Jackson Collector Car auctions between 2007 and 2010 and raised a total of $880,000 for the AFF. Construction of Project American Heroes IV, a 1970 Camaro, is scheduled to begin this summer.
Super Chevy Magazine is the largest all-Chevy publication in the world and has been published for more than 40 years. The Armed Forces Foundation’s mission is stated as “serving those who serve” and “to promote the morale, welfare and quality of life of those within the United States Armed Forces community.”
American Heart Association
Each year, Source employees actively participate in the START! Heart Walk for the American Heart Association. The Start! Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premiere event for raising funds to save lives from the No. 1 and No. 3 killers: heart disease and stroke. Last year, local offices placed third in fundraising efforts and were active participants in the event, raising more than $27K for the Lee County Chapter of the AHA.
