Spotlight on Volunteers: Our Employees Are Making a Difference
Stanley Black & Decker employees have a long history of giving back, and we are especially proud of employees who are serving their communities during the COVID-19 crisis. They are donating much needed blood, using technology to read stories to children, sending handmade greeting cards to senior living center residents, and delivering necessities like groceries and medications.
Here are just a few more examples of the compassionate and innovative ways our employees are making a difference:
STANLEY Infrastructure in Milwaukie, Oregon, has partnered with a local group to produce face shields for use in the Portland metro area. Last week we finished our first delivery of 12 face shields to Legacy Health, a large health care system. The full order of 1,000 pieces is being handled by multiple teams across the area. Face shields are also being produced at STANLEY Engineered Fastening’s Montpelier Manufacturing Operations in Indiana for donation to local medical facilities.

Our manufacturing facility in Sedalia, MO donated more than a dozen rolling cabinets to Western Missouri Medical Center for use transporting Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Because of the portability of the units, the PPE can be readily available from medical unit to medical unit as needed.

The STANLEY Healthcare team has launched a “Share a Smile” campaign, creating cards to send to our senior living customers. Thousands of these customers have had to stop resident visits, and this effort is helping fill the gap by sending messages of happiness and hope to seniors.

When a community health center in Missouri asked if anyone could make them eight sneeze guards to help protect front desk staff, Chris Lamb, an EH&S manager at our plant in Missouri, built all eight (with our tools, of course, and an assist from his family)! Chris and his family also made 25 gallons of hand sanitizer following WHO guidelines to deliver to retirement homes and other groups.
