B. Braun Employees Make Wishes Come True
At B. Braun, we cultivate a strong culture of caring through our employee engagement efforts. This year, more than 70 B. Braun colleagues participated in a 1.5 mile Fun Run/Walk to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania & West Virginia Chapter. This non-profit foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy in 57 Pennsylvania counties and West Virginia.Our employees hosted an additional company-wide fundraiser and raised a total of $16,000.
A company match increased the total donation to $32,000. In addition, employees donated 267,560 frequent flier miles to the foundation. Every mile donated helps Wish children and their families travel to destinations around the world. B. Braun has kept the tradition of raising funds for the Make-A-Wish for the past several years. The company plans on making more wishes come true in 2018.
Ann Waltman, Director of the Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania & West Virginia Chapter expressed: "We are grateful to everyone at B. Braun for partnering with Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia Chapter once again in 2017," said Ana Waltman, director of the chapter. "We couldn’t do what we do without the support of donors such as you. B. Braun is our largest corporate donor and 'Wishmakers at Work' group in our chapter and we thank you for your continued support of our mission. Thank you for bringing smiles to the faces of eight more children in the surrounding local communities of your corporate headquarters."
