PPG recently announced that its Colorful Communities program – the company’s signature community engagement initiative – has received the 2019 GOLD Halo Award in the Employee Engagement Group Volunteering category from Engage for Good. The Halo Awards are among North America’s highest honors for corporate social initiatives and cause marketing, showcasing successful consumer engagement and employee engagement efforts.
PPG’s Colorful Communities program was recognized at the 17th annual Engage for Good Conference in Chicago on May 30.
“The Halo Awards were created nearly two decades ago to publicly recognize best-in-class corporate social impact programs,” said David Hessekiel, president, Engage for Good. “This year’s winners are a wonderful representation of the effective and innovative ways companies and causes can work together to build a better world and the bottom line.”
“We are honored to receive this national recognition for the Colorful Communities program and its impacts on the communities we call home,” said Malesia Dunn, PPG executive director, PPG Foundation and corporate global social responsibility. “The program thrives because of the dedication of PPG employees around the world. Together, we leverage the power of color to bring happiness and a sense of pride to community members.”
The Colorful Communities program, PPG’s signature initiative for supporting communities, aims to protect and beautify the neighborhoods where PPG operates around the world. Through the Colorful Communities program, PPG’s committed volunteers contribute their time and PPG paint products to help transform community assets – from painting classrooms, to bringing color to a maternity ward and redesigning a playground. Since 2015, PPG has completed more than 200 Colorful Communities projects, impacting more than 5.2 million people in 30 countries.
