All staff members, encouraged to participate at two locations of the area’s Boys and Girls Clubs, were given a full work day to contribute to the volunteer activities.
“We’re so proud to launch this program by engaging our staff in the community,” says Wolfgang Niedrist, CEO of Fronius USA. “The children and activities supporting those children are our future and we are committed to providing energy to those organizations through offering our staff as a volunteer workforce for the day.”
Fronius staff painted, landscaped and even used their product, the mobile welding tool Fronius Accupocket, to restore the Portage and South Haven, Indiana Boys and Girls Clubs. The United Way helped to support their efforts, which supports 39 nonprofits in the county in which Fronius is headquartered.
“United Way of Porter County is thrilled to partner with Fronius USA and their employees on the first Fronius Day of Hope. We want to thank the Fronius team for their hard work and commitment to children and youth in Porter County. They are awesome to work with,” says Sharon Kish, executive director of the Porter County United Way.
