Michelman recently held its 7th annual Commitment to Community Day. Teams of employees from offices in the U.S., Belgium, Luxembourg, China, Singapore, India, and Japan volunteered their time at numerous non-profits, schools, and charitable organizations around the globe.
“While giving is a core value here at Michelman and can be seen on a daily basis”, said Steve Shifman, president and CEO. “Our annual Commitment to Community day has become a special day that our entire team looks forward to each year. I’m extremely proud of the energy our associates put into this important event and thank each and every one of them for their caring and volunteering spirit.”
In the U.S., associates spent the day assisting staffers at organizations including Teen Challenge Cincinnati, Easter Seals, People Working Cooperatively, and Redwood School and Rehabilitation Center.
In Europe, Michelman volunteers were spotted building a henhouse at Ecole Communale, a local village school in Belgium; weeding and gardening at Maison des Jeunes Aubange, a local youth house also in Aubange; and renovating furniture at Fondation Kraizbierg Domaine Schumansbongert, a resident care center for elderly disabled.
In Asia, Michelman teams spread out across China, Singapore, India, and Japan.
Michelman’s volunteers in Singapore spent the day with a team from MINDS (Movement for the Intellectually Disabled).
In Mumbai, volunteers in their distinctive matching black shirts, enthusiastically helped out at EarthAngels Welfare Foundation. Associates provided building maintenance and distributed clothing and other supplies to children and their families.
In Japan, the team made donations through the Japanese Red Cross Society to assist victims of the numerous natural disasters that occurred in Japan this past summer. Two Michelman representatives visited the Japanese Red Cross Society office in Minato-ward, Tokyo to personally make the donations and express their sympathies.
“The organizations we had the privilege of helping and the countless others like them are in need of volunteer help each and every day.” said Shifman. “I’m humbled each year, not only by our associate’s enthusiastic participation, but by the organizations helping those in need that so graciously welcomed our help.”
