At a small event hosted at Amalgamated Sugar’s Nampa factory, the Company presented a check for $2,500 to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho. The donation is part of the President’s Safety Award – a program at Amalgamated Sugar in which, upon reaching safety milestones at a factory, the Company will donate to the charitable organization of that factory’s choice.
Recently, the Nampa factory achieved 250,000 hours without a recordable injury. The factory was awarded $2,500 to donate as they chose, and a committee of employees at the Nampa factory selected Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho.
“This accomplishment is the result of our employees’ dedication; working hard each and every day to make Amalgamated Sugar a safe place to work,” said Dave Hawk, Plant Manager for the Nampa factory. “The President’s Safety Award is a great way to give back to the community and celebrate this achievement in workplace safety.”
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho supports families of ill or injured children by keeping them together in times of medical need. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho raises all funds for operating the Idaho Ronald McDonald House, Ronald McDonald Family Room, and Happy Wheels Hospitality Carts locally, through donations and signature fundraising events.
The employees of the Nampa factory are grateful for the opportunity to give back to a local cause that they support. “We are constancy working to develop our safety culture so that every employee can return home to their families the same way as they left them,” said Troy Morfin, District Safety Manager in Nampa. “This program and our donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho, show that – for Amalgamated Sugar – safety isn’t just about the workplace; it’s about caring for people and our communities.”
