Gilbarco Greensboro Facility Donates more than $40,000 in supplies and 10,000 Hours in Service to Triad communities.
Greensboro and surrounding areas, NC, October 12, 2018 – More than 1000 Gilbarco employees will join forces to give back to their communities. Gilbarco and its parent company, Fortive, have offered every employee a day to volunteer as a team, or with the community organization of their choice. The Gilbarco’s Greensboro facility team joins over 100 events around the world, sponsored by the other operating companies and locations of their parent company, Fortive Corporation. In Greensboro, the employees will be working on more than 25 projects to feed the hungry, provide supplies for churches and nursing homes, help veterans, fight homelessness, give back to our local police and firefighters, provide supplies for our local animal shelters, and help those impacted by Hurricane Florence.
“With over 1,300 employees in the area, Gilbarco is committed supporting the community by giving back our time and resources,” said Lakita Robinson, HR Director for Operations. “Many of our employees are already very active in their communities so we are so excited to take this opportunity to give back as one team.”
Throughout the day, employees will be contributing over 10,000 hours, cleaning up parks and recreational areas, visiting schools and assisted living centers, making care packages for veterans and hurricane relief, and packing over 25,000 toiletry, snack, and first aid kits for those in need.
