It’s been a couple months since the last blog post and Intertech Plastics has been busier than ever, and not just in the factory. After Sec. Clinton’s visit in June, the Clinton Global Initiative- America (CGI) was in Denver for the first of two years. At CGI, Noel Ginsburg- Chairman and CEO, was recognized on stage for Intertech Plastics’ involvement with the youth of Metro Denver and Aurora. Additionally, Intertech Plastics has made a commitment to CGI in cooperation with the Small Business Majority to dispel the negative perception of manufacturing jobs and careers as well as raise awareness that there is mutual benefit for small to medium sized businesses to hire interns from inner city high schools.
In addition to our CGI commitment, Intertech employees from all divisions helped Habitat for Humanity last week. Volunteers went to a new neighborhood being built by Habitat for Humanity in the Montbello area. This isn’t the first time Intertech Plastics has supported Habitat for Humanity and it certainly won’t be the last. Rewarding community involvement activities like this have long been engrained in Intertech’s culture but a new program will actually start tracking the hours and good we do. Intertech Plastics employee Johnny Murphy was one of the volunteers at this year’s Habitat site and had this to say about the work they did, “It’s an awesome feeling to be able to help your neighbors… I’d be happy to do it again.”
“Intertech and its supporters have now donated over $155,000.00 to the United Way“
On Monday, Aug 18th Intertech Plastics held its 13th Annual Golf Tournament benefitting the Mile High United Way Lights On After School Program at the Blackstone Country Club. With record sponsors this year, Intertech and its supporters have now donated over $155,000.00 to the United Way program which helps schools stay open later for tutoring and after school programs. Once again spearheaded by Kim Martel, the event was a huge success and a whole lot of fun. Thank you to all participants and a special thanks to our sponsors for being such great supporters of our community: A+ Products, Mesa Industries, Katzke Paper, EKS&H.
