The Test & Inspection Division of AFL Global completed their annual
United Way campaign with the total donation amounting to $17,000. The donation
was distributed to local United Way organisations in New Hampshire and
Massachusetts with Granite United Way receiving $8,000 and United Way of
Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley receiving $9,000.
Supported by AFL’s associates and their Community Outreach Program, this
year’s donation increased by 21 percent over last year.
According to San Adam, general manager for AFL’s Test & Inspection
Division, their local United Way organisations have first-hand knowledge of their
communities’ greatest needs, which are communicated to AFL associates. The associates
responded to the need and made a difference, he added.
This year’s United Way campaign theme was ‘Lights. Camera. Take Action’.
Through AFL’s Community Outreach Program, donations were matched
dollar-for-dollar up to $100 and for those new to the United Way campaign,
donations were matched dollar-for-dollar with no limit.
AFL locations in South Carolina, North Carolina and Washington
participated in the campaign, which generated $325,000 for United Way organisations
in the United States. AFL locations internationally also supported the annual
campaign, helping raise $352,000+ worldwide.
AFL has an extensive Community Outreach Program that provides grants,
sponsorships, associate engagement projects, disaster relief and more. For
