NMG is a proud partner of BGCA, which serves 4.6 million kids and teens across 4,700 Clubs nationwide.

"As we lead with love, our philanthropic focus this holiday season is more critical than ever. Our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America ensures kids have the resources they need to thrive and contribute to sustainable positive community growth," said NMG Vice President of ESG and Belonging Mimi Sterling.
NMG's corporate social responsibility efforts are focused on being "All Heart" and leading with love, which means serving our customers, communities, and each other with heart. NMG's BGCA partnership comes to life in several ways this year:
