At PPT Solutions, supporting our local community is incredibly important to us. It’s embedded into our culture.
“Being a part of the community is important to us,” said Jim Reeb, PPT Solutions President. “If we are able to participate in community events and give back with our time and resources, that is the true definition of success.”
While we support various organizations, the American Heart Association is one that is near and dear to our hearts at PPT Solutions. We are able to support this organization in two primary ways.
Each year, PPT Solutions participates in the Huntsville Heart Walk alongside millions of others across the nation who are eager to raise funds for lifesaving science and technologies. The goal of this walk is to reduce death and disability from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20% by the year 2021. The Heart Walk promotes fun ways to be physically active and make healthier choices every day. Employees from PPT Solutions participate by either walking with our team or donating to the event. Together, we strive to make healthier, longer lives possible for everyone.
