Clow Corona Focuses on Improving the Environment in April

Clow Corona team members in Corona, California turned their focus to the environment in April on Earth Day and Arbor Day.  Team members and their families volunteered for a clean-up at Citrus State Park on Earth Day to remove brush, dropped fruit and trash around the citrus trees in the state park.  At the end of the day the Clow team had cleaned up 35 bags of debris from around the trees.  On Arbor Day, volunteers cleaned-up litter and planted various shrubs and flowers in the area surrounding the Clow Corona facility.

Thanks to all team members that volunteered.

AB&I Team Removes Debris from Elmhurst Creek

At McWane, we are committed to giving back to the communities where our team members live and work.  One example of that commitment is AB&I’s adoption of Elmhurst Creek which runs directly behind the AB&I property as part of the Oakland Adopt-a-Spot Program. AB&I’s team members volunteered once again to remove debris from in and around the creek.

Andy Berg and Jesse Tom led the effort recruiting volunteers from different departments.  Volunteers worked tirelessly cleaning the creek and picking up approximately 3 yards of trash, including a shopping cart, fire hydrant, plywood, plastic wrappers, and lots of spray paint cans.  They also cut down overgrown weeds and bushes, and approximately 10 yards of brush.

Many team members expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to help clean up the creek.  This is an example of the AB&I spirit inside and outside the property boundaries.

Special thanks to the volunteers for your commitment to making the Oakland community the best it can be!

Tyler Union Helps With Relief Effort After Devastating Tornadoes

When the town of Jacksonville, Alabama and surrounding areas were hit by devastating tornadoes on the night of March 19, Tyler Union team members were quick to respond by donating supplies, working with local shelters and helping with debris clean up.  The destruction left in the storm’s wake was unimaginable and cleanup and rebuilding will be ongoing for years.  Tyler Union continues to raise money for the relief fund and work with the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce on the needs of the affected areas.

Lori Denton, Director of Business Development for the Calhoun County Economic Development Council said, “Local industry response has been overwhelming. The surplus donations of high demand items, financial contributions, labor, time, and meals, displays what it means to love your neighbor. We are so proud to represent the industries in Calhoun County because of the unwavering strength found in the people of this community. We are so thankful to our industrial partners that have already reached out and are continuing to work alongside the Calhoun County Economic Development Council with the relief efforts.”

Clow Valve Company Donates Historical Brass Sign Holders

If you want to know how and why a community is the way it is today, you have to look at its history. The Oskaloosa, Iowa community made the decision to display historical markers throughout the city to showcase the history of the buildings throughout the entire town. Unfortunately, they only had a $100 budget per marker so they relied heavily on local businesses and residents to contribute to the project.
Clow Valve was pleased to have the opportunity to donate the brass sign holders. The first marker was placed at the Oskaloosa Fire Department which was built in 1909.

Clow Canada Sales Team Volunteers at Romero House

Clow Canada held their annual sales meeting in Saint John, New Brunswick the week of January 22. A regular agenda item for these meetings is a charity event that doubles as a team building experience. This year was no exception.  The sales team volunteered to make sandwiches at the Romero House to put in children’s lunch bags for the following school day. The Romero House is a soup kitchen that was founded in Saint John in 1982 that serves free meals and provides food hampers and housewares to those in need 365 days a year, including Christmas day.

In lieu of a dinner out that evening, the day was topped off by the team presenting the money they would have spent going out to dinner at a restaurant as a donation to the Romero House. Take out food that night never tasted better!

The Clow Canada Sales team had a great time and came away knowing they had made a difference for those in need in the Saint John community.
