Local Salisbury, Maryland manufacturer, Safran Labinal Power Systems, recently presented United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore with a check of employee and corporate contributions totaling $16,355 for the 2015-2016 campaign season. Safran Labinal has partnered with United Way with annual campaigns for over 11 years. Since 2004, employee and corporate donations from Safran Labinal (formerly Harvard Custom Manufacturing) have totaled $433,217 in support of local Eastern Shore residents in need.
For many years, Safran Labinal has been an employer for hundreds, yet due to recent corporate changes, the organization is on track to relocate operations to Texas by the end of 2016. With nearly half the employees it once had, Safran Labinal continues to show its commitment to the local community through its support of United Way.
Kathleen Mommé of the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore shared, “We are truly inspired by the continued generosity of Safran Labinal and their employees in consideration of the major changes occurring within their organization. The employees of this great company are role models for community compassion.”
