Here at Magnetrol®, we strive for excellence in all of our endeavors. That includes delivering high-quality, reliable level instrumentation for all your applications, of course. But we don’t want our efforts to stop at the office door. We’re committed to giving back to our communities through corporate philanthropy, service projects and participation in charity events. Across the globe, MAGNETROL associates can be found generously donating time and money to a wide variety of causes. Below are the stories of two recent projects that connected MAGNETROL with important needs in our communities.
Run for the Mind
On September 22, 2018, MAGNETROL associates and their guests joined in on the Run for the Mind fundraiser in Wheaton, Illinois, United States to benefit NAMI DuPage. NAMI DuPage's mission is to provide support, advocacy, and education in order to improve the quality of life of individuals with mental illness and their families. The MAGNETROL Philanthropy Committee also set up an additional sponsorship in the memory of Dr. Stephen Labbie, previous counselor for MAGNETROL. Dr. Labbie was a respected clinical psychologist for 45 years and touched the lives of many.
On November 13, MAGNETROL sent a team of volunteers to assist with turkey distribution at the Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry in Aurora, Illinois, United States. The volunteers helped stock shelves, distribute food and assist with loading groceries in cars. Aurora Food Pantry describes their mission as “ending hunger in the community by providing nutritious food in a humanitarian and compassionate manner.” The volunteers found it to be a fun and rewarding experience.
We’re grateful to all MAGNETROL associates who volunteer in the community and participate in our corporate philanthropy initiatives. Together, we hope to share our skills and talents wherever they’re needed, outside as well as inside the workplace.
