SERVING THE COMMUNITY IS MORE THAN OUR JOB.
IT’S OUR HONOR.
At MRP, we believe in supporting the communities that support us so passionately. We call it the MRP Purpose and it is our promise to help promote prosperity and enhance lifestyles throughout the communities in which we reside. We don’t do it to promote ourselves. We do it to promote prosperity.
Since 2009, MRP has contributed and/or raised $3,400,000 for charitable organizations.
Secondly, and more personal to our staff, is our dedication to mentoring highly-motivated young men and women through purpose-finding and aptitude assessment. We meet with these students, be it one-on-one or as a team, to help and identify the unique gifts each and every individual can manifest in their daily lives. We utilize our vast professional network to make introductions to other mentors in various industries to further enhance personal growth. When the need extends beyond our capabilities, we work closely with Launchgrad, LLC in Atlanta, Georgia, a firm specializing in this area that has demonstrated time and time again how their personal touch and dedication takes these motivated students to new heights.
