Life Sciences Team Helps Virginia Community
Corning employees and family members recently spent time participating in a community service effort sponsored by Project Mend-A-House, a United Way non-profit serving low-income residents, seniors, veterans, and those with disabilities in local Prince William County.
This community outreach project provided assistance to a senior resident whose home had fallen into disrepair over a number of years due to ongoing health and financial problems. Corning volunteers, along with others in the community, made a difference by cleaning inside the house, repairing and restoring functionality in some areas of the home, and clearing out brush that had overgrown around the property.
"As part of our Corning Cares initiative, community outreach was one of the goals for us this year," said the Manassas plant manager. "We are very happy and proud of the engagement, camaraderie, and caring expressed by our employees.
