Coming Together to Make a Difference

Posted 02/08/2018 by Kimberlee Sinclair, Executive Director, H.B. Fuller Company Foundation

At H.B. Fuller, we believe in the importance of supporting the communities where we live and do business. Each year, we celebrate our commitment to giving back through our Make a Difference volunteer campaign. In 2017, over 1,100 employees in 17 countries donated more than 3,800 hours of service to their communities, positively impacting approximately 6,900 community members. As part of the Make a Difference campaign, employees are empowered to choose the local community needs they want to support. This year’s 45 projects ranged from food drives to bike builds, renovations at local schools, enrichment activities for seniors, environmental conservation efforts, and holiday gift collections.

Every year, employees around the world vote to select one outstanding project for recognition. The project completed by employees in Vancouver, Washington, was selected as the 2017 winner. The team in Vancouver addressed homelessness and hunger in their community through several related projects: employees completed landscaping and renovations at a local homeless shelter, packed food at a food bank, and held two donation drives benefitting a homeless shelter and domestic violence shelter. Participating employees contributed more than 130 hours of volunteer service. The partner nonprofit organization, Share Vancouver, will receive a donation in recognition of the dedication to service displayed by employees in Vancouver.

Our employees’ passion and willingness to serve brings to life our commitment to giving back. Learn more about how we support our community by following #HBFullerCares on social media and by visiting
