In celebration of its Global Giving Day, Plexus Worldwide organized a campaign to encourage Plexus Brand Ambassadors, customers and employees to volunteer at local nonprofits that address hunger within five different Mexican states. Plexus expanded this positive impact through a financial donation to a food bank in the state of Jalisco, as well as the donation of 5,500 bags of Svelte Whey Essential (a protein shake that delivers essential vitamins and minerals) in Chiapas, Estado de Mexico, Michoacan, and Jalisco, and 560 bags in Toluca, Estado de Mexico.
In Guadalajara, volunteers delivered the equivalent of 143,00 meals and 2,000 school kits by filling pantries and bringing groceries to the community.
“Our business has grown rapidly in Mexico during the last year, and we are thrilled that so many Plexus employees, customers, and Brand Ambassadors participated in Plexus Global Giving Day to benefit their local communities,” said Vice President of Sales, Latin America, Alex Hoffmann. “Plexus is focused on improving lives through our wellness products and by working together to help our communities around the globe.”
Outside of these efforts in Mexico, Plexus volunteers also spent the day helping food banks and shelters across the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
