In July, over 90 of our employees suffered major damage to their homes and the loss of personal property. In response to the flooding, a relief effort was started to help offer financial support to those who were affected by the floods. In true SMP fashion, employees from all over banded together to raise money for our coworkers in need of help. In total, our employee donations totaled $15,802, and in addition to that, the company contributed $20,909, bringing the total to $36,711.

During the COVID-19 pandemic a majority of schools were forced to close their doors and practice distance learning. This left many teachers in new, uncharted territory and scrambling for material to use with their students. Fortunately the online arena is one that Standard Motor Products Pro Training team has been familiar with since 2008 when we began our Pro Training On-Demand program.
