We believe it's important to be good corporate citizens and help to make our communities a better place to live. Employees have the opportunity to volunteer in two initiatives sponsored by Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories:
In 1997, we began a volunteer program to interest students in science, using the slogan, "If you love science, pass it on." Through this program, employees have tutored inner-city school students, led lab tours, spoken at career days, given science magic shows and science-related presentations, sponsored a "Chemistry Olympics," and hosted on-site shadowing experiences.
Since 2000, our senior management has challenged employees to perform one volunteer activity a year as a team to help our communities. Our Community Heroes projects have involved hundreds of employees and have included a variety of projects that have enriched peoples’ lives, improved neighborhoods and provided assistance in crisis situations.
In 2006, all employees came together to finance and build two Habitat for Humanity "Homes in a Box" for shipment to Gulf Coast hurricane victims.
