OWI Launches new program aimed at giving back to the local community

 

NORTHBROOK, IL, August 22, 2018 – As an industry leader, Old World Industries understands the importance of being thankful and giving back to our local community, while supporting charitable causes. That is why we launched a new program called OWI Cares.


Create Culture of Giving

Act Compassionately

Respond with positive impact

Engage with our communities

Spirit of Service


This program allows our employees to give back to our local community and support charitable causes like food drives, cancer walks, blood drives and more.



In April 2018, OWI Cares partnered with the American Red Cross to host the first ever OWI-Sponsored Blood Drive. With 29 Participants and over 30 Pints donated, the onsite team for Red Cross mentioned it was one of their most successful corporate blood drives.


In May, OWI Cares held a silent auction with proceeds raised to help The Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. Our generous OWI community raised over $3,000 in silent auction items and OWI Cares generously matched 50% of the donation to support this great cause.


In July, OWI Cares held a School Supply Drive benefiting the Waukegan, IL school district. 375 items were generously donated from the OWI community, and 50 backpacks were provided from OWI Cares.


As we continue to grow OWI Cares we invite you to connect and ask questions via email address owicares@oldworldind.com. Thank you for supporting this great program.
