Procter & Gamble does more than just serve their consumers; they are dedicated to helping build local communities all around the world.
Procter & Gamble, Co. (P&G), a proud client of Capital Associates is a multinational consumer goods company. Their products range from diapers and baby products to cleaning agents to personal care products and are recognized household names such as Pampers, Gillette, Old Spice, Oral-B and Pantene to name a few. Their largest manufacturing plant is in Mehoopany, Pennsylvania.
Along with achieving a rank of 34 on the Fortune 500 and employing over 100,000 people with good family sustaining jobs, including thousands right here in Pennsylvania, P&G also serves as a fine example of a company that gives back to the community. Over the years, P&G has developed a strong relationship with United Way. United Way’s mission is to, “improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.”
To support the work of United Way, P&G hosted their annual “United Way Drive.” This fundraiser was based solely off the contributions from hard-working, dedicated P&G workers. For their eighth straight year, P&G broke their fundraising record; this time by $30,000. P&G was also proud to announce that they exceeded their goal of $550,000 in proceeds.
Brian Gallagher, United Way Worldwide President and CEO, is proud of the partnership United Way has developed with P&G over the years. Gallagher stated, “P&G is a global leader in corporate citizenship and a great United Way partner.” P&G’s commitment to forming strong corporate philanthropic partnerships is one among many reasons why Capital Associates is proud to represent Procter and Gamble.
