Community ServiceCommunity involvement is the power to bring positive, measurable change to both the communities in which we live and to our business. Supported Charities
Corporate Community Services
Madrid CPWG believes in supporting the communities in which we work and live through a combination of volunteerism and sponsorship. We also support programs that provide national and international support to communities in need.
We take an active role in encouraging our employees to pursue volunteer activities. Our employees regularly volunteer to promote the health and safety of children walking and biking to school, provide staff for information kiosks, prepare food for the needy and perform fundraising activities.
Supported Charitable Organizations
Below is a sample of the worthy causes supported by Madrid CPWG or our employees.
The Sidewalk Stompers Walk to School Wednesday was attended by Councilman Joseph Citro at the Roosevelt Elementary in Tampa. Being a part of Sidewalk Stompers is easy: just walk, bike, or scooter to school! Their programs can be part of any elementary or middle school. You can learn more @ https://sidewalkstompers.org/

Palabra de Vida, Mexico
Larry Madrid and several of his employees came up with the plan to develop a new soccer field including the method to irrigate it in an extreme arid environment. Madrid financed the work for a Christian camp, called Palabra de Vida in Mexico. Larry cut the ribbon at the dedication and was able to see the first game of a tournament hosted there. The field has been used by hundreds of soccer players, those attending the camp and those from the surrounding communities. The field is one of the few green patches in that very dry area of Mexico.
Hispanic Heritage Festival
Madrid CPWG hosted a series of festivals to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. The festivals were designed to recognize the past contributions of Hispanics and celebrate Hispanics that are making a contribution to their communities. The festival provided a forum to discuss issues affecting the community as well as potential solutions.
Madrid CPWG worked with Team Pain (in photo) during the design and construction of the new 22,000 square-foot skateboarding facility at Lake Bonny Park. After the park was closed, the skating community unified to begin lobbying and fundraising. Everyone’s efforts led to the creation of a great new skate park.
Madrid CPWG hosted a series of parties for local Chamber of Commerce members. Sinkhole de Mayo is an Annual Bartow Chamber just-for-fun event.
