Metal Recycling Services Supports Local Monroe Fundraiser

Metal Recycling Services – Monroe proudly supported local Monroe Police Department Detective Johnathan Williams, as he participated in the 14th Annual Cycle to the Sea bike ride.  This April 25 – 27, 2013 event was a 180 mile bike from Charlotte, North Carolina to North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Cycle to the Sea supports the programs provided by the Adaptive Sports and Adventure Program (ASAP). These programs celebrate the abilities of the physically challenged rather than the disabilities.

Most of these unique individuals would not have the opportunity to participate in handcycling, rugby, golf, tennis, water and snow skiing, and kayaking without ASAP. Often, this participation becomes a turning point in people’s lives, by creating an environment where confidence is bred and self-esteem soars!

Metal Recycling Service’s culture and philosophy revolves around being good neighbors in and giving back to the communities in which we do business.  For example, all our facilities support local community fire departments, providing space and vehicles for firefighters training with “Jaws of Life”.   MRS works with fire and police departments, and has developed strong community partnerships.  MRS is proud to be serving those who serve and protect, and to support its local Monroe Police Department detective.  The contribution to Cycle to the Sea is just another example of MRS’ commitment to do the right thing and give back.
