Practice Makes Perfect

Our partnership with College Bound paved the way for our Toastmasters Club to work with students for the annual Cap and Gown Gala to perfect their speeches and offer a forum where they could give their presentations and receive valuable feedback.

Helping Each Other

Our partnership with the St. Louis Special School District gives students in the vocational skills program classroom space on our campus. The students perform various tasks with our employees and contract vendors, gaining marketable skills they can use in the workforce.

A group of Maritz team members had some fun giving back with Rebuilding Together-St. Louis to freshen up the library at Patrick Henry Downtown Academy. They built furniture, cleaned, repainted walls and even painted a Dr. Seuss mural to inspire kids to enjoy reading.

Flood

Our event planners know you can’t plan for everything, but you can prepare.

When flooding occurred in May 2017 and wreaked havoc near our Fenton, Missouri, offices, we took comfort in knowing that we contribute funding to the Red Cross Ready 365 Giving Program, which offers immediate disaster-relief funding.

We also encouraged our people to take advantage of the paid time off we offer to work with our non-profit partners.
