During the holiday season, JMX Brands’ CEO Jim Miller and Vice President Linse Miller offered to personally match employees’ gifts up to $1,000 and provided a company match of up to $2,000.

In alignment with the company’s core value of giving, a Giving Committee was established at the Sarasota-based business in September to foster a culture of generosity.

In under three weeks, 58 employees of the parent company of DutchCrafters Amish Furniture contributed more than $1,400, leading JMX Brands to donate nearly $4,000 to All Faiths Food Bank, in Sarasota, and Goshen Interfaith Hospitality Network, in Goshen, Indiana.

JMX Brands is a niche Internet retailer, selling more than 10,000 different products on a variety of websites, including its flagship Amish furniture site, https://www.dutchcrafters.com,

On Jan. 4, Harbor Chiropractic donated $4,100 to Loving Hands Ministries to pay for an advertising wrap on its delivery truck.

Every year, Harbor Chiropractic, based in Bradenton, chooses two nonprofits to receive donations. This year, the recipients were Loving Hands Ministries and Hope Domestic Violence.

Loving Hands Ministries has a long history in Manatee County as a residential program for men with life challenges, specifically drug addiction. It will soon open a third facility in Metter, Georgia.

Loving Hands opened a thrift store in October 2019. Shortly afterward, it purchased a pickup/delivery truck and hoped to wrap it with business graphics. But, COVID hit and the project was put on hold.
