Bejing Make a Difference effort for H.B. Fuller.

Making a Difference in China

Posted 03/01/2018 by Anna Bosak, Community Affairs Specialist

During H.B. Fuller’s 2017 Make a Difference volunteer campaign, employees in China took collaboration to the next level. H.B. Fuller has assisted communities worldwide through their Make a Difference Campaign, during which employees are able to choose the local community needs they want to support and organize group volunteer efforts.

This year, employees at H.B. Fuller’s six locations in China –Beijing, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, Suzhou, and Yantai – came together to plan a joint project to make a difference in their local community.

Through the popular WeChat Sport app, individuals can track their steps, and when they reach 10,000 steps, a donation is made to a charitable organization. During the Make a Difference campaign, H.B. Fuller employees organized group walks in local public parks to help reach their 10,000 steps. Not only were employees able to raise funds for charities, they also built relationships with coworkers and prioritized healthy behaviors.

Together, our employees in China donated 2,372,019 steps to five charitable organizations supporting causes including education in rural communities; multiple orphanages; programs preparing college graduates for career success; and medical costs for survivors of fires.

Employee volunteerism has shown to be a fantastic way to improve workplace culture and support the communities where employees live and work.

H.B. Fuller Cares

The Make a Difference campaign is just one of many ways H.B. Fuller lives out a commitment to giving back to the communities where employees live and work. Community Affairs Councils encourage employees to actively engage in volunteering throughout the year. Employees can also receive corporate matches of their personal donations of time and money to local community nonprofits. Through corporate giving and grantmaking, H.B. Fuller supports STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education and youth leadership development around the world.
