From its humble beginnings in founder Thom Schulz’s home in Loveland, Colo., 39 years ago, to its wide-ranging product line and team of 250 staff members, Group Publishing still believes in its community. One of the ways the company does so is through its annual Community Service Awards, the most recent of which was held in at the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse in Johnstown, Colo., on Aug. 29.
Every year, Group gives a portion of its profits to service-oriented organizations and leaders in northern Colorado. Since 1997, Group has donated more than 1 million dollars to non profit organizations in the area through the Community Service Awards.
This year, Group awarded $61,000 to local organizations in such categories as Educational Services; Social Services: Faith-based; Services for Youth; and Church-based Outreach. pecial awards were also conferred, including the Special Church Award, which was presented to Warriors for Christ, and the $25,000 Outstanding Award, which was given to Amy's House for Girls.
