INVISTA continues contributions to Boys and Girls Club of Victoria
Backpack donations, volunteer events set to benefit local children in the community
INVISTA continues to support the Boys and Girls Club of Victoria (BGCV) through sponsorships, volunteer opportunities and in-kind donations. Most recently, INVISTA employees and contractors donated 200 backpacks to the BGCV student members for use at home and school.
"We are so very thankful for companies like INVISTA who invest both their time and monies to the future of our club,” said Roxanna Salinas, BGCV Board of Directors president. “The children come to the club to learn, play and grow in a safe environment. The backpacks generously donated will allow each child the opportunity to benefit from them far beyond the club.”
In addition, INVISTA helped sponsor the United Way’s Day of Caring earlier this month. This year, the community service project focused on the BGCV, where INVISTA Victoria employes joined other community volunteers to replace air vents and ceiling tiles, clean and paint rooms, and provide other facility improvements.
“INVISTA strives to be a good corporate citizen and make a positive impact in the areas where it operates,” said Kevin Burke, INVISTA Victoria site manager. “The BGCV provides a service to the community through its youth-enablement programs that we are proud to support.”
INVISTA was also a title sponsor at this year’s annual Boys & Girls Club golf tournament, providing a $5,000 donation and employee volunteers to further the BGCV’s cause.
