Supporting Our Community
Plex believes in giving back to the community through support of local, national and international organizations that strive to improve the lives and wellbeing of others. Through corporate donations, fund-raising events, matching contributions and support of our employees’ volunteer efforts, we at Plex seek to share the fruits of our success with those needing a helping hand.
A Heritage of Giving
Our philosophy of giving back to the communities in which we live and work is woven deeply into the fabric of our company culture. From day one, Plex employees have made it a priority to not only provide quality services to our customers but also to support others in need.
We feel that giving back shouldn't just be a one-time gesture; it should be a continuous partnership that grows over time. We established the Plex Giving program to do just that — to rally our employees around a specific cause or community organization on an annual basis. Since 2007, Plex Giving has partnered with organizations like the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Humane Society of Monroe County, Make-a-Wish Michigan, St. Clair Butterfly Foundation and this year’s partner the National 4-H Council. Fundraising activities include pancake breakfasts with Plex executives as celebrity chefs, wine tastings, silent auctions and employee donation matching.
“Your generous donation will provide 117,698 meals for our hungry neighbors in need.” Cara Rayner, Food and Fund Drive Campaign Manager, Gleaners Community Food Bank, 2013 Plex Giving Partner
2014 Plex Giving Partner: National 4-H Council
Each year, our employees select a new community partner to support through special company events, fundraisers and company donation matching programs. Plex is proud to recognize National 4-H Council as our 2014 Plex Giving partner. Since 4-H began more than 100 years ago, it has become the nation’s largest youth development organization, reaching more than 6 million youth. The 4-H idea is simple: help young people and their families gain the skills needed to be proactive forces in their communities and develop ideas for a more innovative economy. 4-H opens the door for young people to learn leadership skills and revolutionizes how they connect to practical, hands-on learning experiences outside the classroom.
