Giving Back

Running a business is about more than profit and loss. Those things are important, yes, but it’s just as important to be a part of the community. That’s why we make giving back an integral part of our practice by supporting local charities like Alternatives in Motion, Small Talk Children's Advocacy Center, and Muskegon County’s Meals on Wheels program run by AgeWell Services. 

Alternatives in Motion

Alternatives in Motion

In 1993, two courageous gentlemen founded Alternatives in Motion, hoping to meet the West Michigan community’s growing need for mobility equipment and repair services. The new nonprofit began raising money and making its cause known, believing access to mobility equipment is the path to independence for those in need. Since then, Alternatives in Motion, which remains entirely funded by independent donations, has continued to grow and strives to keep up with the need for mobility equipment.
