Culture of Caring Stronger Than Ever
This year, employees at all of our Pennsylvania locations joined forces and raised $171,132 for the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley - the most successful United Way campaign in our history.
Annually, our employees participate in the company’s biggest community partnership to support the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley. The United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley is committed to ensuring that children receive a good education, that seniors are cared for, and families have healthy food and that everyone has access to emergency services during times of crisis and more. This year was even more meaningful, as the United Way celebrated its 100th anniversary!
"B. Braun cares about the Lehigh Valley and the difference that the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley makes to thousands of lives throughout the year," said Caroll Neubauer, Chairman & CEO, B. Braun America Inc. "This organization truly changes lives and makes our Lehigh Valley a better place to live, work and play. "
This year’s fundraising activities included a “Day of Caring,” where a team of employees volunteered at the Big Brothers, Big Sisters golf tournament. There were four bake sales at the corporate headquarters, and the ever popular basket raffle.
Employees also made pledge donations through payroll deductions to different organizations under the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley.
In 2016, B. Braun successfully raised $130,074.
"Through our employees' generous contributions and caring nature, we are making a better and stronger Lehigh Valley,” said Neubauer.
