Big voluntary participation at charity event at WIKA USA

Each day, more than 6000 children all over the world die of hunger-related diseases. Our colleagues from WIKA USA are determined to help reduce that number. Signs ?s largest volunteer effort up to now in the U.S. was the From Hunger to Hope MobilePack event this March in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
100 employees ? from WIKA managers to office and production employees ? spontaneously registered to pack meals for starving children worldwide in two-hour shifts. WIKA USA was a Gold Sponsor, providing hundreds of volunteer hours and donating $50 per volunteer to support the function. Stephanie Jones, director of employee relations for WIKA USA, was one of many company?s 100 volunteers. Her first Hunger to Hope day was an experience she’d long remember: ?It was emotionally very touching. When you fill a bag with vitamin powder, soy protein, rice, and dried vegetables, you actually see what will provide six meals for anyone who has nothing to consume. Each bag represents a kid.?
WIKA has participated in this event before, but only with 50 employee volunteers. ?This time around we had more than 100 people who wished to volunteer?, Jones said. ?But as a manufacturing plant, we’ve on-time delivery goals. With a total of 900 people in Lawrenceville, we decided we could spare about 100. We definitely had no issue filling those spots.? As a leader in measuring instruments and technology, WIKA USA is doubtlessly committed to customer satisfaction, employee education, and continuous improvement. But just as important may be the dedication to a company culture of social responsibility, a safe workplace, and a clean environment. To emphasize its spirit of unity and teamwork, WIKA USA has rallied around the slogan ?Better Together?.
