During the peak of COVID-19, Corning worked to put the world’s crisis first. Once the demand for COVID response was clear, Corning reworked production lines to maximize support for the scientific community. Not only do we manufacture glass vials for the vaccine, but also key materials used for scientific testing and research. From the pandemic, we have learned that preparedness for world health crises is critical. With forward thinking capabilities, we are more prepared to weather the storms that are to come than ever before.
Corning is committed to serving our communities through organizing company volunteering events and supporting individual volunteering efforts. During 2021, we did not let COVID shutdowns get in our way – employees volunteered over 750 hours with more than 25 community organizations.
The Corning Foundation’s Dollars for Doers program provides cash grants to eligible US-based nonprofit organizations where Corning employees volunteer.
