Sales are not the only thing growing rapidly at Plexus Worldwide. The nutrition and weight-management company also reports an exponential increase in charitable giving, including two new donations to Our Military Kids and Toys for Tots.
Totaling $202,143.88, the latest donations resulted from promotional events held on Veterans Day and Cyber Monday. Scottsdale, Arizona-based Plexus, which ranked No. 132 on this year’s Inc. 500 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies, regularly pledges a portion of its single-day sales to charity.
From its Veterans Day sales, Plexus donated $78,494.35 to Toys for Tots, a U.S. Marine Corps Reserve program that distributes new, unwrapped toys to less fortunate children throughout the U.S.
The response from Plexus customers and independent sellers helped the company achieve a three-fold increase over total giving in 2014, according to Chief Marketing Officer Alec Clark. “Our 250,000 Ambassadors from across the U.S. continue to inspire us by their commitment to helping their communities and giving to good causes like Toys for Tots and Our Military Children.”
