Integrity Marketing Group, LLC (Integrity), a leading distributor and provider of retirement and wealth management solutions, has announced that the Integrity Foundation completed the first in a series of community legacy initiatives and support projects to come – building a modern playground for Norfolk, Nebraska, which will benefit future generations of families and children. The playground, located in Norfolk’s Liberty Bell Park was designed for several months, then built on a single day in partnership with KABOOM! Premier Marketing, WealthFirm, and the City of Norfolk. Integrity’s revitalization of this beloved community park will have a positive and long-lasting impact on the health of children and their families.
The Norfolk playground is one of Integrity Foundation’s largest charitable projects. Integrity Foundation was founded in order to create meaningful and sustainable changes that will improve the health and well-being of millions of people across the country. Integrity has an extensive national network of employees, agents and customers, and is able to connect its stakeholders to enriching opportunities to protect life, health, and wealth for people across the nation.
Integrity values service as a core value. The company offers its employees two days paid leave per year to volunteer in the community in various settings. Integrity Foundation relied on the talents, time and dedication of hundreds volunteers to complete the massive and impressive task of building the structure from top to bottom in one day. In a spirit that embodied generosity, Integrity, Premier, and WealthFirm employees and their families joined forces with local community members to build the playground and gathering areas at an unprecedented pace. Volunteers performed physically demanding tasks, such as mixing 13,000 pounds concrete by hand, moving 150 cubic yard of mulch that weighed more than 100,000 pounds and assembling picnic tables and benches.
The playground structure was designed before the historic build date, using the input of more than 550 local kids who submitted drawings depicting their dream playground. More than 200 members of the community reviewed the designs and incorporated them into the final artistic design and functional decisions. The Integrity Foundation also worked alongside the community throughout the process. The playgrounds and picnic areas are intended to serve as gathering places for families, and will increase a sense of pride and belonging for all community members.
Integrity Foundation and its partners are committed to continuing sponsoring local initiatives in support of the key areas of investment for the Integrity Foundation across the United States.
