Giving back to our communities is an essential part of who we are. Every year, we are humbled by our employees’ generosity. Their charitable works range from mentoring and education to hosting toy drives and donating food and personal care items to those in need.
Many of our branches support local groups and causes that matter to them. Their acts of kindness have included donating stuffed animals to pediatric hospital patients, supporting domestic violence shelters, and helping the Operation Turkey program provide Thanksgiving turkeys to the less fortunate.
Our Women’s Network also dedicates much of their time to giving back. Some of their projects have involved packing lunches for the homeless and making fleece blankets for former and current military members.
WESCO also sponsors a number of programs to assist children, youth and families, including Urban Impact, a non-profit based in Pittsburgh’s North Side neighborhood. Over the years, this organization has helped countless local residents through athletic, art, and education programs.
We recognize many of these efforts internally and on our social media sites. It’s important that we recognize the charitable work of our employees and inspire others to follow suit.
