In addition to celebrating 15 successful years in business, we reached a significant milestone with our community service initiative Fuelanthropic. Since our inception in 1999, inferno and its employees have contributed more than 10,000 hours of community service, which equates to more than $1 million in time and service donated to area nonprofits.
To commemorate this milestone, Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell, Jr., and City of Memphis Mayor A C Wharton, Jr., proclaimed September 25, 2014 as Fuelanthropic Day. That same day, inferno partners and employees gathered with clients and our nonprofit partners for A Million for the Mid-South celebration. Mayor Wharton and Mayor Luttrell’s Deputy Chief Administrative Officer, Kim Hackney, were there to present the proclamations.
“We’re certainly proud of our work for area nonprofit organizations as an agency, but we are truly humbled by the investment made by our employees to give back on their own,” said Tim Sellers, Agency Partner at inferno. “We have our clients to thank for equipping us with the resources to make this work.”
With these resources inferno Partners are able to provide all employees with a week of paid civic time to volunteer for the causes they value most.
