Pro Tapes® prides itself on being a positive influence in the communities in which we operate. Through our C.O.R.E. program, we look for ways in which we can invest in programs that help empower people who reside in the local community, programs that provide unique training and educational skills to their participates.
One such program is Minding Our Business (M.O.B), which provides at risk elementary aged school children with an opportunity to learn and develop entrepreneurial business related skills. Chris Hart, V.P. of Sales & Marketing, and Dennis Mirabella, Arts & Entertainment Business Unit Director, presented M.O.B with the sponsorship check on Thursday, March 24th in Trenton, New Jersey. During their visit, Chris gave a presentation on Pro Tapes® and our manufacturing facility in North Brunswick, New Jersey. Chris and Dennis also assisted the students with preparation tips and pointer’s for presenting their business plans in the competition. Pro Tapes® is sponsoring the program that holds an annual business plan competition for the second year in a row. The quality of work displayed by the children each year during the competition demonstrates the effectiveness of the M.O.B entrepreneurial skills program. Last year, Pro Tapes® sponsored the M.O.B. program in Perth Amboy.
Minding Our Business is exactly the kind of program that provides the type of self-empowerment and confidence building Pro Tapes®’ is looking to be a part of and that’s why we are excited to announce sponsorship of the program in Trenton this year.
