Northeast Ohio-based materials firms Avient Corp. and Geon Performance Solutions have made the holidays brighter by donating to a local charity.
Both Avient of Avon Lake and Geon of Westlake made donations to Elyria-based Neighborhood Alliance, which has been supporting those less fortunate in Lorain County since 1927.
Neighborhood Alliance serves Lorain County neighborhoods through several programs, including child and senior enrichment, family supportive services, emergency services and the Haven Center Homeless Shelter.
Avient employees donated two truckloads of items to Neighborhood Alliance, while Geon employees donated many items as well as a check for $5,000.
Avient and Geon each rank among North America's largest compounders and concentrate makers. Avient also is one of the region's largest resin distributors.
