RAHWAY–As part of its 10th annual United Way fundraising campaign, Infineum USA L.P. partnered with the United Way of Greater Union County for a special project, the construction and donation of a playhouse to a local day care center.
In addition to the yearly fundraising and outreach activities, employees at Infineum made the 2008 campaign extra special by designing, building, decorating and donating a playhouse to the Rahway Day Care Center. The work was all completed on site by employee volunteers who gave up their lunch time and stayed late after work to build the structure.
The children from the Rahway Day Care Center were presented with the playhouse at a special celebration held at the Bayway Chemical Plant on Oct. 30. They had the opportunity to admire the hand painted, jungle themed mural which decorates the inside walls of the playhouse and test out the chalk board. “The excited looks on the children’s faces made this tremendous undertaking well worth the effort,” said Bert Armeny, UW Campaign committee site co-chair.
Other highlights of the campaign included a kick-off breakfast and an info fair, a book drive, a clothing drive and a night of caring event through the UWGUC.
