Signal Mountain Cement Holds Food And Clothing Drive To Benefit Marion County Community Ministries

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

The employees of Signal Mountain Cement, a local division of Buzzi Unicem USA, headquartered in Bethlehem, Pa., have once again shown their generosity in a big way. The employees participate in various activities throughout the year such as the Heart Walk, Blood Drives, and the River Gorge cleanup in addition to supporting local organizations in Chattanooga through employee donations.

Most recently, the plant held a food and clothing drive in support of Marion County Community Ministries. A great deal of the plant employees live in Marion County and they have selected the Ministry as their charity of choice for the past three years. The recent drive ended on Wednesday with over 2200 clothing items and 5,681 pounds of food donated.

As is always the case, there was a friendly competition between departments to see who could donate the most. The maintenance department won by a very small percentage with the production department close behind.  In the end the real winner is Marion County Community Ministries.

So then my grandfather ... (click for more)
