Big voluntary participation at charity event at WIKA USA

Uplifted , more than 6000 children all over the world die of hunger-related diseases. Intense from WIKA USA are determined to help reduce that number. The company?s largest volunteer effort up to now in the U.S. was the From Hunger to Hope MobilePack event this March in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
100 employees ? from WIKA managers to office and production employees ? spontaneously registered to pack meals for starving children around the world in two-hour shifts. WIKA USA was a Gold Sponsor, providing hundreds of volunteer hours and donating $50 per volunteer to support the event. Stephanie Jones, director of employee relations for WIKA USA, was among the company?s 100 volunteers. Her first Hunger to Hope day was an event she would long remember: ?It had been emotionally very touching. When you fill a bag with vitamin powder, soy protein, rice, and dried vegetables, you truly see what will provide six meals for someone who has nothing to eat. Each bag represents a kid.?
WIKA has participated in this event before, but only with 50 employee volunteers. ?This time we had a lot more than 100 people who wished to volunteer?, Jones said. ?But as a manufacturing plant, we have on-time delivery goals. With a total of 900 people in Lawrenceville, we decided we’re able to spare about 100. We definitely had no issue filling those spots.? As a leader in measuring instruments and technology, WIKA USA is doubtlessly committed to client satisfaction, employee education, and continuous improvement. But just as important may be the dedication to a company culture of social responsibility, a safe workplace, and a clean environment. To emphasize its spirit of unity and teamwork, WIKA USA has rallied around the slogan ?Better Together?.
