Philanthropy and Community Support
Being a family-owned business based in Grand Rapids for almost 100 years, community involvement and support is important to us at Proos. We have found it mutually rewarding to support organizations such as Goodwill Industries through their Power of Work program (mentoring employees through on-the-job training), as well as the Grand Rapids Urban League – providing jobs for those with barriers. Amy Proos is passionate about supporting the community and in addition to volunteering for Grand Rapids Opportunities for Women (GROW), a local organization that supports women who are building or growing a business, she is a member of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Proos also supports Toys for Tots, a local POW/MIA group, Festival of Trees, Special Olympics and The Humane Society of West Michigan. Proos is becoming known throughout the community as a company that cares, and we are creating a culture where every employee at our company participates in this vision.
