Faurecia team members answered the call to make a difference in their communities across North America by exceeding the monetary and volunteering goals set for this year’s Faurecia Unites with Employees for Local Service (FUELS) Food Drive.
During the 9th annual campaign, Faurecia and its team members surpassed their food goal by donating more than 1,188,000 meals to community food banks. Since the annual campaign kicked off in 2010, Faurecia teams have donated more than 7.6 million meals to their community food banks.
Team members from all 44 Faurecia sites across Mexico, Canada and the United States also came together to invest 4,160 hours in their local communities during September.
“Faurecia has a longstanding tradition of investing in the communities where we operate,” said Kevin Lammers, president of Faurecia U.S.A. Holdings Inc. “As a company, we believe that acting responsibly is key to ensuring the sustainable development of our community ecosystems for future generations. We have a responsibility to have a positive impact on society.”
The annual FUELS Food Drive is a signature part of Faurecia’s North America community outreach program. The company aims to support non-profit organizations doing important work in the communities Faurecia serves in a number of ways including: encouraging team members to volunteer, using skills-based volunteerism to drive impact, providing financial support for team-driven projects and providing sponsorships and donations to local events and organizations. The company supports work in several different areas, including STEM education, youth and career development, ensuring access to basic needs and promoting environmental sustainability.
