PPG Industries employees from 11 sites in China recently donated clothing, bedding and school supplies for people in Yushu County, Qinghai Province. The “warm winter” program has been led by PPG volunteers for six consecutive years, and this year PPG volunteers at sites in Tianjin, Shanghai, Zhangjiagang, Wuhu, Foshan, Guangzhou, Kunshan and Suzhou collected supplies that will be delivered to schools and poverty care stations in Nangqian Village, Yushu County, in preparation for the harsh winter months ahead.

“Our involvement in the ‘warm winter’ program demonstrates PPG’s core value of recognizing the concerns and needs of society,” said Cathy Yan, PPG general manager for government affairs and business development, Asia Pacific. “We will continue to expand our Chinese volunteer initiatives and to encourage more employees to engage in charitable endeavors in the areas of education, environmental protection and community donations.”
