Fairfield Gives Back to Local Community
LENOIR, NC (August 6, 2018) — Fairfield is proud to share the various philanthropic ventures they have taken on this summer. In its commitment to support the local community, Fairfield worked with Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program, aided the renovation of Bethel Colony of Mercy’s new women’s campus, made generous donations to West Lenoir and Valmead Elementary Schools, and participated in Relay for Life events. Fairfield continues to demonstrate to its customers their dedication to serving the community.
Fairfield formed two teams of employees that each assisted in the last stages of building a house for the Caldwell County Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program. The Women Build program encourages women to use various resources and skills to help build a Habitat home alongside the future homeowner.
Fairfield employees also united to help clean the grounds of Bethel Colony of Mercy, a Christian ministry founded to aid men struggling with addiction and substance abuse. The facility recently acquired a property that will become its women’s campus, and Fairfield helped prepare the grounds for opening. The campus is expected to open in late summer.
In efforts to give back to the local education systems, Fairfield has been working to put together 300 backpacks filled with school supplies to donate to students at West Lenoir and Valmead Elementary Schools, two Title 1 schools in the area. In addition to backpacks, Fairfield gave a generous $20,000 donation to West Lenoir and Valmead Elementary Schools.
Keeping with its ongoing commitment to Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, Fairfield organized a cookout and pie-throwing contest to raise money as well as participated in the annual Relay for Life walk-a-thon. The cookout alone raised $984, and employees who participated in the walk-a-thon benefiting Relay for Life raised over $10,000. This amount was matched by Fairfield, totaling $22,827.50 donated by the company to fund cancer research.
“As a company, we put a lot of emphasis on the importance of supporting the surrounding community,” said Jamie White, Vice President of Finance (CFO). “It’s really exciting to see how eager people are to give back.”
