Making a difference in people's lives through our commitment to serving and
our passion for hobbies
Hobbies for Good represents all the ways Horizon Hobby extends our time, talents and resources into the community at large. Our people love to serve others and engage in meaningful causes. They've raised money for cancer research, provided food and shelter for families in need and contributed aid for victims of Katrina and the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan. Some of our largest hands-on efforts have included the complete sponsorship and construction of two Habitat for Humanity homes in Champaign-Urbana, IL as well as the construction of 10 cinderblock homes for poverty-stricken residents of Juarez, Mexico.
Whenever possible, we strive to make a difference using our model hobbies as a platform to help people. We are honored to donate our own radio controlled cars, helicopters, airplanes, boats and model trains to help numerous charitable organizations raise money for great causes. One of our biggest thrills is when we send product overseas to help our active military men and women relax in their much deserved time off. It's not uncommon to find "Horizonites" sharing their passion for our hobbies by helping out in schools, youth groups and clubs.
At Horizon Hobby, we believe that financial success flows from our core value of servant leadership, not the other way around. For us, doing good and doing well are directly linked. We are motivated by our vision and values to serve and to make a positive impact in the world. We are proud of our employees' dedication to stepping up whenever there is a need. Our people are part of something much bigger than themselves and they can be counted upon to make a difference in people's lives.
