The Magnetic Group is dedicated to engaging with the community around us.
There are so many wonderful people, businesses, and organizations in Louisville, and the more we can interconnect, the stronger the fabric of our community will be.
So here’s what we’ve been up to.
In March, those of us not suffering from Strep throat took part in the Brightside cleanup; did you see those nerds in neon green shirts picking up trash on Bardstown Road? We were those nerds!
In April, we were unable to physically join in the Central Park cleanup (a project close to our hearts since Central Park is the home of Kentucky Shakespeare), but we did send a donation to help the cause.
Even more valuable than money, we gave our time, as our entire company spent the day at Hawthorne to organize events and assist with all the fun activities. We were thrilled to hear that Hawthorne raised over $10k for new classroom technology!
[Note: in the image below, it only looks like Aaron does not know how to hula-hoop. In fact, that hula-hoop is on the way up; that’s right, he can start it at his feet and shake it up to his waist.]
Days later, Ziggy volunteered at a big warehouse cleanup for Kentucky Shakespeare, and he managed to break into the Macbeth costumes before security could restrain him.

On May 20, we spent a long, hot afternoon at Tyler Park removing invasive honeysuckle bushes to help preserve the health of the trees. We made another fun connection, as our Olmstead Parks coordinator happens to live just a few houses down from Zig and Jes. Great meeting you, Erin!
Tonight, we launch a very fun project for Actors Theatre of Louisville, in which we’ll be donating our qualitative expertise to talk with key stakeholders about fortifying one of the city’s best arts organizations.
And in June, we’ll be participating in the Jefferson Memorial Forest cleanup.
It’s a thrill to be part of such a tremendous community!
Thank you, Louisville.
