Faurecia SA has launched a corporate giving program to support the communities where it has a presence throughout North America. The program, called FUELS (for Faurecia Unites with Employees for Local Service), will involve more than 9,000 Faurecia employees in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The goal is to contribute to the fight against hunger. Each of Faurecia's 34 sites throughout North America will collect non-perishable food items to donate to its food bank of choice, where employees will also spend time volunteering. Auburn Hills, Mich.-based Faurecia North America also is setting up a competition among its plants. Sites that meet a collection goal will receive a $500 donation for its local food bank, and the site that collects the most pounds per person in the U.S./Canada and in Mexico each will receive $5,000 for its local food bank. To follow the progress at each of the automotive supplier's plants, connect with FaureciaFUELS on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. (That's an interesting use of social media, for charitable purposes, by the way. Perhaps something that other companies can emulate).
Hats off to Faurecia
