The generous employees of Weiler Abrasives Group, the Cresco-based global abrasives manufacturer, raised more than $40,000 in their annual campaign benefiting Pocono Mountains United Way. The company matched that effort with a $60,000 corporate contribution, bringing Weiler’s total donation to $100,000.
The money raised will support Pocono Mountains United Way’s Monroe County programming initiatives that address poverty alleviation, healthy food access, and critical housing needs for local families.
To help promote the United Way campaign among her colleagues, Matos led a United Way committee with representatives from several Weiler departments. The campaign was 75 days long, themed “75 Days of Giving,” and culminated on October 12 at Weiler’s Family Day Fall Festival, a celebration of the company’s 75th anniversary. In September, the committee also hosted its Fifth Annual Golf Tournament at Skytop Lodge in Skytop, PA, another fundraiser for the company’s United Way campaign.
