“The premise behind our community engagement program, Lives in Motion … is that we’re working to move communities one step closer to fulfilling their dreams,” said Wills Group President and COO Blackie Wills. “For our nonprofit partners, it’s a matter of how can we provide the resources to help them deliver on their purpose, because by doing that, that’s keeping Lives in Motion. Whether it’s being able to put meals on the table for the food insecure or providing that welcoming outdoor space for the community, it’s a little bit of inspiration that you’re taking one step closer to helping you reach your goals.”
