Remington Supports Local Foster Care

Sep 26, 2018

Every day, hundreds of kids enter foster care with very little belongings, most of which are carried in a trash bag. Remington Products Company is honored to support its’ local foster care by donating duffel bags, bikes, blankets, teddy bears, and personal items.

Remington has partnered with Together We Rise to help make a difference for children in foster care. Together We Rise is a non-profit organization dedicated to building awareness and fundraising for children in foster care, hoping to provide them with a brighter future, and a sense of normalcy. Together We Rise has multiple programs like sweet cases, build-a-bike, birthday boxes, and much more.

The Sweet Cases program provides children with duffel bags, decorated by the Remington employee owners, filled with a teddy bear, blanket, coloring book, crayons, a hygiene kit, and additional items from the employees. The Build-a-Bike program provides children with a bicycle, built by Remington employee owners, who don’t have access to another form of transportation or have never had a bike of their own.

Through the initiatives of the Remington ESOP Communication Committee and the Remington Cares Program, the employee owners of Remington Products built 15 bikes and decorated 41 bags!

The ESOP Communication Committee was created to promote a culture of employee ownership and involvement through company events and education. The goal of this committee is to create an atmosphere that is fun, inclusive, educational, and inspirational. The committee also aims to help others and to support causes both locally and nationally.
