Holiday Wishes from the NAM

By December 25, 2006General

Christmas is the season of giving, and giving is a subject manufacturers know a lot about.

Manufacturers and their employees contribute, not just during the holidays, but every day to charities and community groups that help people all across this country.

Business owners and their employees appreciate that they owe much to the communities where they live and work.

And they give back.

There are thousands of examples among the members of the National Association of Manufacturers. And it’s not just the big companies, the everyday names we hear so much about.

For example:

  • Williams-Pyro of Fort Worth, Texas recently held a chili cook off to raise funds for the heroic firefighters who died and other victims of the California wildfires.
  • Power Curbers, Inc., of Salisbury, North Carolina, donates about 10 percent of its pre-tax income to organizations like hospitals and colleges.
  • The Nordic Group, up in Baraboo, Wisconsin, awards educational grants to college and vocational students.
  • This list could go on and on — So many companies involved with local charities that make sure families enjoy a happy holiday season, complete with meals and toys for needy children.

    Manufacturers are happy to support their communities. It’s part of being a good corporate citizen, with the spirit of the season.

    Merry Christmas, everyone.
