The Caribbean island of Grenada continues to face tough economic times with a significant number of its residents living in poverty. A relative of an Edgetech employee living in the area recognized the need to provide books and supplies to the impoverished youth of the country in hopes of giving them a chance at a better life. Eager to assist with the cause, employees from Edgetech and sister company LMI Custom Mixing held a drive that resulted in an astounding 5,000 books and enough additional supplies for 80 children, including pencils, erasers, scissors, glue and crayons. The response from employees was overwhelming, said Mike Hovan, President, Edgetech I.G. Thanks to their help and help from our friends and suppliers, 161 boxes of books and supplies were delivered to Grenada. It has been a wonderful effort from all involved and will make a difference in the lives of these children. Edgetech also thanks its logistics partner, Conway, for graciously shipping the 6,000 pounds worth of books and supplies at a deeply discounted rate. It just makes you proud to be part of an organization that really cares for people, Hovan said. Our employees and partners share the same goal to be good members of the community and of the world. It is a big part of who we are as an organization.
