Thank You to Hendrix Genetics and their employees for their support of student nutrition programs across Guelph and Wellington Region. The ongoing employee-giving donations and corporate-matching program have raised (since 2016) a total of $233,000 in support of local student nutrition programs at Food & Friends and Nutrition for Learning.
“The Children's Foundation has such a positive impact on the health of the communities in which our employees live and work. Our focus is to invest in the future and help to feed the world, and so support of these programs [Food & Friends] was a natural fit and offered a personal connection to our team,” says Dave Libertini, Vice President Americas, Hendrix Genetics.
Hendrix Genetics is a multi-species animal breeding, genetics and technology company with employees and facilities throughout Waterloo and Wellington counties. They are also a wonderful example of how a joint employee/corporate initiative can make such a substantial contribution in our community.
