Endicott Interconnect Technologies, Inc. (EI) has received the United Way of Broome County’s Thomas J. Watson Society Gold Award. The Gold Award is presented in recognition of charitable contributions in the range of $50,000 and $99,999. It is an 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. EI has participated annually in the United Way campaign since the company’s creation, and has achieved the Gold Award, at a minimum, for each year of participation.
“Our local United Way works to enhance the quality of life for our community members by focusing on Education, Income, and Health. They do this in part by funding over 50 critical community programs; funding made available through the annual campaign. Since our inception, Endicott Interconnect, Huron, and Surescan have participated in the annual campaign, and our associates have given generously every year. It is gratifying to see this continued support and I am amazed with our people’s sense of community. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the campaign,” said Ken Spink, Director of Quality and United Way Coordinator at EI.
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.
