The United Way, an organization focused on improving the health, education and financial stability of people, uses its global reach and local presence to build stronger, more resilient communities where everyone can thrive. Each year, we host annual site campaigns across Avery Dennison to raise awareness and funds for the United Way. From raffle baskets to costume contests, employees across the U.S. rallied together to be a force for good in their communities.
In addition to site-led activities, the Avery Dennison Foundation matched every employee pledge made via payroll deduction, which made a significant difference in our total impact.
Thanks to the generosity and desire to make a material difference, together we raised $500,354.80, exceeding our goal of $500,000 for 2022!
Here’s how that breaks down:
$185,054.52 via employee pledges
$189,454.52 via Avery Dennison Foundation
$125,845.76 via Corporate and site-sponsored activities
When it comes to United Way, every dollar counts. To put our donation into perspective, we’ve raised enough money to supply:
- 20,000 families with a weekend of food
- 10,000 people with a week of career training
- 5,000 seniors in need with home-delivered meals
- 2,000 children with monthly books
- 1,000 children with after-school programming
Our donation will have a positive impact in communities across North America, with each local United Way that we support utilizing funds to contribute to the greatest needs in their community.
The success of our 2022 campaign is due to the giving spirit of our employees, the active involvement from all of our sites and the generosity of the Avery Dennison Foundation. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this year’s campaign.
Together, we made a difference in the communities in which we live and work. Bravo!
