Herbalife Nutrition (NYSE:HLF) recently presented a $30,000 donation to the YWCA’s Best Choice Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, to help replace a damaged roof.
“The Best Choice Center is a key contributor to the transformative health and wellness of the community, and we are proud to be a partner in that positive change,” said Mark Evans, general manager of the Herbalife Nutrition Innovation and Manufacturing Facility Winston Salem and senior vice president of Global Supply Chain. “It’s important to us to support an organization that is dedicated to educating and enriching the lives of children to grow up and pursue their dreams.”
The donation will assist in removing old roof shingles and turbines and repairing decking, creating a healthy environment for Best Choice Center employees and students.
Since opening the facility in 2013, the company, along with the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation, has prioritized community involvement in Winston-Salem and surrounding areas through employment opportunities, volunteerism, non-profit healthy nutrition and lifestyle exposure through community service and events.
In addition to financial support from Herbalife Nutrition and Herbalife Nutrition volunteers, the YWCA Best Choice Center is supported by the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation as a Casa Herbalife partner. Through the partnership, the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation provides support for nutrition, nutrition education, academically focused programs, and after school care and enrichment activities to children in the community.
“Since the company moved to Winston-Salem, Herbalife Nutrition has been a steady partner to the YWCA, especially the Best Choice Center,” said Christy Respess, president & CEO, YWCA of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County. “They seem to anticipate our needs, and this challenge grant for the roof could not be more important after the hurricanes this past fall. We are so fortunate to be an Herbalife Casa.”
