Henkel partners with six local service agencies through volunteering activities to benefit the local community

Henkel demonstrates caring for the community

More than 80 employees from Bridgewater, New Jersey, took part in a “Week of Volunteering” outreach project this past spring to benefit six local community agencies, demonstrating Henkel’s support for sustainability initiatives.

“The most rewarding way to give back to our community is to donate our time,” said Gowri Narsimhamurthy, one of the Henkel employees who coordinated the outreach project. “Our Week of Volunteering activities help to reinvigorate the concept of volunteering through time and actions – rather than donating items or money. The initiative provides a memorable experience for employees and local community members alike.”
