This Month on The Spark the theme is
“Strengthening Home”


A monthly series about business and community leaders who are fueling change by giving back to the Mid-South. Each month on The Spark hometown heroes who are affecting change and leading by example are showcased.

This month on The SPARK the theme is “Strengthening Home.” There are countless organizations working hard to lift and strengthen our home by helping others; providing jobs, support services, and opportunities to learn and succeed; and doing whatever it takes to make a difference. Organizations like the Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis are taking a leadership role in aligning people and resources to empower women and children and to reduce poverty in Memphis. The Consortium Memphis Music Town is providing the mentorship, education, tools, and access needed to help local artists build successful careers in the music business; and they’re creating the next chapters in our city’s rich music legacy in the process. Then, companies like Mueller Industries are not only providing jobs for generations of family members, they’re creating products that help us improve health and comfort while also working to improve our community, as well. I love their statement, “More than the part we make is the part we play.”
