Making a difference is how we do business.

We know that it’s not just customers that make up a community. Other businesses, local organizations, and a network of neighbors all contribute to the health of the place we call home, and helping to build and maintain a healthy community has always been a priority at Microcom. Over the years, we’ve worked with a number of local and national organizations to help bolster our community’s foundation, and we continue to seek out new ways to promote growth and change every day. If we’re not making a difference, we’re not doing our jobs right, and we encourage everyone to join us in our continued support of our community.

We’re proud to support these local and national organizations!
