Hendrix Genetics employees give back
US Thanksgiving is right around the corner. In the spirit of giving, we are proud to highlight the generosity of our employees. Each year, we encourage employees and contract farm owners to give back to their local community. The program enables our staff to make financial donations to our charitable partners. Hendrix Genetics then matches their pledges, dollar for dollar.
We are happy to announce that this year’s community giving efforts totalled over $81,000 for Nutrition for Learning and Food & Friends. This is the third year in a row that our employees’ giving efforts have surpassed previous year pledges!
This gift will be used to support both programs that are committed to ensuring every child in their region has access to healthy food during the school day. The programs offer all students a safe, welcoming, and inclusive atmosphere that models the benefits of good nutrition and healthy eating habits.
The high level of engagement from our employees, both financially and through volunteering, shows the enthusiasm to support programs that help to feed the children in our community. The programs also teach children about the importance of generosity. We hope that this inspires the next generation to help others in the future when they see someone in need.
