PHILADELPHIA, PA – Harmelin Media has been named a 2021 honoree of The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia by Philadelphia Foundation, in partnership with Points of Light and local partners. Modeled after Points of Light’s national program, The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia provides a standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how employers use their time, skills and resources to drive social impact in their communities and company.
Lyn Strickler, Executive Vice President & Managing Director, says “Since our founding almost 40 years ago, Harmelin Media has strived to be a company with a caring culture. This caring culture focuses on our employees, of course, but it also extends to the Philadelphia community as a whole. We’re honored to be recognized by the Philadelphia Foundation and the Points of Light organization for our efforts in being community-minded.”
The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia honorees are private and public companies and other employers operating in the Philadelphia region. They have been selected based on four dimensions of their community engagement program:
