When employees volunteer together to address an issue or benefit a cause, amazing things can happen. U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company (USSTC) and its parent company, Altria Group, have seen this first hand. In 2012, USSTC employees in Nashville built on their already strong culture of teamwork and caring by adapting toys for children with disabilities; building bikes for kids in foster care; supporting Metro Nashville Public Schools during Hands On Nashville Day; and more.
“Employees at Altria’s companies are committed to being involved in their communities,” said Amber Roos of Altria’s Corporate Contributions and Community Relations Department. “We foster an environment that supports our employees as they work together to contribute their time, energy and talents to our communities, and we are pleased to invest in Hands On Nashville as a Presidents Circle Corporate Partner. We are proud to honor all the volunteer groups who do incredible work in our community, and the finalists for the Civic Volunteer Group Award: Backyard Leaders, Maury Regional Medical Center, and Unity Build.”
U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company is the Civic Volunteer Group Award Sponsor for the Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Awards.
