In 2019, three of our sites celebrated eight years of supporting their chosen charities. High Point and Salisbury, NC, US, facilities continued their financial support for United Way, a non-profit organization offering support to 50 local community agencies across the areas of education, income and health.
In 2019, employees at the sites pledged a combined total of over US$72,000. Since fundraising started in 2012, employees have raised over US$300,000 for the charity.
Another eight-year fundraising effort was celebrated at Ellesmere Port, UK. Jenni Evans, a Project Chemist in our Global Research Center, has been the driver behind the site’s annual charity fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support. Each year, Jenni organizes a coffee morning and bakes a selection of delicious cakes for employees to enjoy while raising money for charity. To date, Jenni’s baking has raised nearly £8,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
