Supporting Our Communities
Creating brighter futures for all
At The Morse Group, we believe giving back to the communities we call home is important. We are proud to consistently support local organizations that promote youth development, support hardworking families, and connect veterans with the support and services they need.
A Little Help Can Go a Long Way
Community Construction Zone
We had a great time volunteering at CareerTek’s and Corporate Contractors Inc’s Community Construction Zone. It was exciting to see so many young people exploring the trades! Special thanks to Werner Electric Supply for generously donating the conduit for our hand bending activity and the large cuts of wire display!
Girls That Build
Introducing High School Girls to Careers in the Electrical Industry
In honor of Women in Construction week, The Morse Group held our second annual Girls That Build event for local high school girls to learn more about opportunities available in the electrical industry. In total, 18 girls from four area high schools attended the event and had a fun morning learning about the electrical industry and completing three hands-on activities. Special thanks to Werner Electric and Leeding Services for their generous donations that helped make this event possible!
Habitat for Humanity
We’re honored to have worked with Rockford Area Habitat for Humanity on our first Habitat home! Volunteers spent multiple Saturdays onsite to install the 100 amp electrical service for the home. Special thanks to all The Morse Group team members and their families who donated their time and talents to make this home a reality. We’d also like to thank our vendor partners Revere Electric, Springfield Electric, and Crescent Electric for their generous donations. We couldn’t have done this without you!
Hendricks CareerTek invited three alumni back to host a career panel for South Beloit Middle and High School students. Included in the panel was our very own electrician, Nolan! Nolan shared his career path with the group, starting with job shadowing and internship opportunities in high school through Hendricks CareerTek, to joining an apprentice program where he could “earn and learn”, to ultimately becoming a journeyman electrician. As someone who once sat in a CareerTek classroom, Nolan could offer unique insight to the group about what their path might look like. Great job Nolan!
Don Morse Charitable Foundation
Since 2012, The Don Morse Charitable Foundation has hosted The Don Morse Golf Invitational to honor the late Don Morse and his commitment to helping others in need. Proceeds from the event benefit local charities including Malcolm Eaton Enterprises, The Boys and Girls Club of Freeport, The Humane Society, and Little Cubs Field. The Don Morse Golf Invitational is an annual tradition at The Morse Group and our golfers look forward to hitting the green in support of a great cause!
The Vegas Veterans Hockey Foundation
VVHF supports veterans and their families in the Las Vegas community. Each year they host a hockey tournament to raise the funds that help connect their veteran members with the support network they need. The Morse Group was proud to sponsor the Vegas Veterans Hockey Foundation’s Charity Golf Scramble held on June 5th, 2021.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library mails one free, age-appropriate book to a child every month to inspire an early love of books and reading. Through the generous donations of our employees and a dollar-for-dollar match by The Morse Group we were able to sponsor 44 local children to receive 1 book a month for the next year and 32 local children to receive 1 book a month from birth to 5 years of age!
We truly believe that with a love of reading and learning, the sky is the limit!
Craftsmen with Character
The Morse Group is proud to partner with Beloit Memorial High School for the Craftsmen with Character program offering job shadowing and hands-on experience to high school students interested in a career in the trades. Over the course of the Fall 2022 semester, The Morse Group hosted students in a three week rotation with other local businesses. In total, seven students took part in the program. We couldn’t be more proud of this promising young group of students! May your futures be bright!
Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels is a volunteer-based program that strengthens communities by delivering hot, nutritious meals to at risk, homebound senior citizens 365 days a year. These volunteer drivers deliver more than a hot meal-sometimes, they are the only personal contact that senior has on a given day, so the friendly visits also serve as safety checks. Meals on Wheels is proud to have empowered seniors to live valued, independent lives in their own homes for 50 years! Employees from our Beloit and Verona offices worked hard to support Beloit Meals on Wheels during the Mushing for Meals 10K run and 5K walk/run held on June 26, 2021.
The Morse Group proudly supports “The Mane Event” benefiting SMILES, an equine based therapeutic program for people of all ages with special needs. This event was held on June 23, 2021 at Hawk’s View Golf Club. A fun time, for a great cause, was had by all!
Afton Hunter Safety
The Morse Group team members give back both in and outside of work. Project Manager Duane Mundth has been involved with the Afton Hunter Safety Program since 2009. They hold two classes annually and incorporate a hands-on approach to teaching local youth hunter safety. The Fall 2021 class included a field day held at Magnolia Game Farm in Evansville, WI. The day culminated with a guided pheasant hunt for each student. This session was especially near and dear to Duane’s heart as there were four children belonging to The Morse Group employees that participated in the program. For Duane, it’s truly rewarding to see students mature from the first night of class to graduation day and watch them demonstrate the skills and hunter ethics learned during the course. To date, the program has graduated over 1,000 students!
CPR & First Aid Training
The Morse Group is proud to offer CPR and first aid training to our team members. Taught by Morse Electric Safety Manager Brad Dieterman, team members learn how to apply basic first aid in several emergency situations including wounds, shock, burns, falls, and overdoses. They also learn how to recognize the signs of other serious conditions like heart attack, stroke, heat exhaustion, frostbite and hypothermia. They gain valuable, hands-on experience while learning to properly perform CPR. Through the use of light-up training manikins, participants can visually see when they were applying the right amount of pressure at the proper speed during chest compressions and watch the chest rise and fall during each breath. To wrap up the course, each participant uses an AED and provides CPR for five continuous rounds to get a feel of just how taxing it is to perform CPR until emergency personnel arrive. Fast action saves lives, and thanks to this training, more people have the knowledge and skills to assist in the case of an emergency both at work and in our community!
