Endicott Interconnect Technologies, Inc. (EI) has received the United Way of Broome County’s Thomas J. Watson Society Platinum Award for the sixth year in a row. Sandy Mitchell, Assistant Campaign Director and George Barna, Campaign Director from the United Way presented the award to Ken Spink, Director of Quality and Advanced Labs and the company’s United Way Coordinator and Jay McNamara, President and CEO of EI on May 14th.
The Platinum Award is presented in recognition of chartable contributions in excess of $100,000 and is the highest achievement from the Thomas J. Watson Society, recognizing leadership in charitable giving in support of the United Way by the private and public sectors of the Broome County business community.
“There would be no United Way Campaign here on the Huron Campus without those who give their time and money to support it. I continue to be amazed and proud of the generosity and community spirit demonstrated by our employees,” said Ken Spink.
EI also sponsors and participates in the United Way’s “Day of Caring” every September. Employees receive paid time off to report to work sites at local non-profit organizations and public schools to tackle meaningful volunteer projects in support of their community. In 2009, over 150 EI employees participated on 12 teams.
