NFI Group Inc. says its participation in the annual United Way Workplace Campaign raised $372,552, which will benefit 18 communities across North America.
The manufacturer says the donation surpassed the company’s goal by 16% and continues NFI’s commitment to supporting the communities in which it operates. NFI Group has raised over $3.1 million for United Way agencies since 2009.
The campaign was again championed by employees across North America, with Director of Human Resources Michelle Whyard as Campaign Chair and teams participating from NFI subsidiaries New Flyer, MCI, Alexander Dennis, ARBOC, NFI Parts, Carfair Composites, and KMG, all raising funds through individual, team challenge, and virtual giving initiatives.
“Giving back to the communities in which we operate is a fundamental part of how we do business at NFI,” said Janice Harper, Executive Vice President of People and Culture at NFI.
The funds will be used to provide critical and basic support to the 18 communities.
“We are committed to continuous investment in our people and processes, and we are also committed to continuous support of our communities,” Harper said. “NFI is working to deliver better, smarter, safer, more sustainable, and more connected public transportation, and it is an important part of our story to contribute to the United Way as it works to create lasting change in communities.”
