ST. LOUIS — Graybar today announced the results from its Empowering Our Communities program, which was introduced last year in celebration of the company’s 150th anniversary and 90 years of employee ownership.
In 2019, Graybar employees gave 100,665 hours of volunteer service to their local communities nationwide, surpassing the company’s goal of 90,000 hours. In addition, Graybar and its employees donated more than $1.64 million to worthy causes, exceeding the original goal of $1.5 million.
As part of the Empowering Our Communities program, Graybar introduced a matching gifts program for employee charitable donations, and employees received a paid day to volunteer in the community. Both of these will continue in 2020.
“Graybar has a long history of generously giving back to the communities where we live and work,” said Chairman, President and CEO Kathy Mazzarella. “Strengthening our communities was at the heart of our anniversary celebration. I thank our employees, retirees, suppliers, customers, family members and friends for joining together to make a difference. We look forward to powering a new era for our communities in 2020 and beyond.”
