Mansfield Plumbing supported the communities where they operate in 2016 with 89 different donations totaling $38,309. From school scholarships for employees' children to contributions of toilets to churches, fire departments, and shelters, the company responded generously to community requests for cash donations and products.
“Our contributions locally in 2016 were the greatest our company has ever made in a single year,” said Natalie Thomas, vice president of human resources for Mansfield Plumbing. “We give top priority to organizations our current or past employees are connected to and then strong consideration to activities in our immediate geographic manufacturing areas.”
The company also donated toilets, sinks and tubs to almost a dozen homes created for disabled U.S. veterans as part of the 2016 Building Homes for Heroes program.
“Each donation request, whether it's for cash or product, is reviewed and analyzed carefully,” said Thomas. “We give equal consideration to a request for $100 to support a local elementary school as we would a $1,000 request for the robotics team at the Loudonville high school. Being a responsible, involved member of our communities helps Mansfield Plumbing stay connected with our employees and the places where we work and live.”
During the past five years, Mansfield Plumbing has made more than 275 donations locally totaling $128,180 to support communities in Ohio and Texas where the company has manufacturing operations.
