Most of us want to make a difference in the world but often a variety of factors interfere – lack of time, info, resources, etc. Sometimes we feel like we don’t do enough. As part of the BiOH experience, we highlight just a few ways for you to help others. We hope to make a difference with you by setting a goal around a specific project every few months and challenging our community to get involved. You can submit ideas on projects as well! Check back frequently to monitor our progress.
Our Next Challenge: Helping the Hungry in Haiti
The BiOH Polyols business is a part of Cargill -which responded to the devastating earthquake in Haiti with an initial corporate donation of $50,000 directed to long-time corporate partners CARE and the World Food Programme, which have significant operations in the country.
In the Twin Cities, Cargill volunteers at its headquarters facility packaged 20,000 meals on January 18 for the nonprofit Kids Against Hunger to be sent directly to people in Haiti; Cargill volunteers will be packaging an additional 30,000 meals over the next month.
We decided that our next challenge to the BiOH Experience community was to further support hunger relief efforts in Haiti. You can click on the banner below to support the World Food Program efforts in Haiti.
