The Vernon Company believes in working within our community to improve peoples’ lives. It is essential for organizations to take corporate social responsibility seriously. Our philanthropic giving and community outreach philosophies are simple: invest resources where they do the most good. Vernon is committed to supporting a variety of efforts through fundraising, volunteering, in-kind donations and direct contributions. Vernon gives a particular focus to organizations that are making a difference and paving the way toward a healthier, thriving community.
Supporting nonprofit organizations is crucial to how Vernon does business. It is our goal to support these organizations whose efforts align with our mission and corporate values. From improving our employee morale to sharing our marketing messages, Vernon believes in helping others. These nonprofit contributions will improve the communities where our employees and customers live and help make a difference.
Any given year, Vernon contributes financially to several local and national organizations. Direct contributions helped each nonprofit achieve its goals toward helping others. Volunteerism and nonprofit board service are also important to Vernon, along with corporate in-kind product donations to worthwhile nonprofits like Operation Christmas Child/Samaritan’s Purse and sponsorships for local youth organizations like the Newton Booster Club.
Continuing Education with industry-led training and certification programs is a key component of Vernon’s emphasis on learning. Company employees are encouraged to attend various courses and webinars provided by industry leaders. Vernon also offers financial assistance for its part-time and full-time employees who wish to further their education. Since 1975, Vernon also offers an annual scholarship program for children of its employees. And each year you can count on Vernon employees to raise money for back-to-school supplies for the less fortunate.
Vernon strives to always lend a helping hand to those in need, especially in the event of a natural disaster. Just recently we donated a substantial amount of money, adult and kids clothing, various toiletries, toys, baby supplies, water bottles and bottled water to the victims of Hurricane IDA through the Red Cross Foundation.
