In celebration of our company’s 125th anniversary, employees were challenged to reach a goal of 125,000 recorded volunteer hours in 2016. Employees were encouraged to seek volunteer opportunities with nonprofit organizations dedicated to the causes that mean the most to them through the program themed, “125 Years of Helping the World Be Well - A New Way Every Day.”
