By Johns Manville.
At Johns Manville, we always want to make a meaningful connection with the communities we serve. That’s why this last holiday season, our new plant in Hillsboro, Texas donated toys and jackets to the Optimist Club. This organization provides financial support and active programs to youths in the local community. And every year they provide clothes and other gifts to children in need in the Hillsboro area. Last December, our employees bought over $500 worth of clothes for the organization.
The team knew that taking in their donations was just the first step of helping the Optimist Club and their efforts to bring joy to children in the community. On Monday, December 13, 2021, our whole production team and our Production Supervisor Brian Girard, arrived to help the Optimist Club wrap all the donations they received.
“I have never done anything like this with work and to know that JM cares not only about us but also our community is an amazing feeling.” – Edgar Salvador
“It feels good to do something nice for people in need.” – Oscar Beltran
Our JM team was featured in the local newspaper as the largest group to volunteer to wrap the donations. This event has really inspired the team at Hillsboro who can’t wait to look for more opportunities like this one to make a difference in their local community.
In addition to Hillsboro, our plant in Scottsboro, Alabama worked with a local high school that needed food and hygiene products for several students. The team hosted a donation drive to collect several items that were later delivered to the high school.
