Fairmont Supply Company, a Washington-based industrial distribution company for almost a century, is partnering with several non-profit groups that help the less fortunate and contribute to the common good. Through its corporate outreach program, Fairmont actively contributes to more than a dozen organizations demonstrating leadership in its headquarters’ location and beyond.
Paul Fichiera, President and CEO of Fairmont says, “community involvement and volunteering are a fundamental part of our business platform and brand. Although we believe our efforts make us a better company, we recognize that the real value of giving back is helping the progress of our communities. I am humbled by our employees’ generosity whether it is packaging and boxing food supplies for seniors, sponsoring a walk for cancer, or through a simple act of kindness. “
One of Fairmont’s preferred ways to connect with the community is through team service days, where employees volunteer at local non-profit organizations. Groups like the Washington County Food Bank, Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Toys for Tots, Boy Scouts of America, The American Cancer Society and Habitat for Humanity will see a positive impact from Fairmont’s participation. Employees roll up their sleeves and serve food, paint houses, work with hearing impaired children - they simply step-up to improve the communities where they live and work.
Beyond Fairmont’s corporate outreach initiatives, employees are also involved independently. Matt Babko, Vice President of Information Technology and eCommerce, has been a local volunteer fireman for 17 years. He believes that there is a tangible opportunity to give back and help shape the community. Babko says, “on a regular basis, you’ll find Fairmont team members serving individually on the boards of local organizations to help people in need. Our company is very proud of that.”
Corporate responsibility is an important part of Fairmont Supply’s culture and they want the charitable work of their company and employees to inspire others to follow suit.
