For Quality Associates, Inc., a Konica Minolta company, there’s no place like home. We are proud to be a part of a company that is actively helping keep its local community healthy and vibrant by supporting various charities and organizations.
MARYLAND FOOD BANK & OCEARCH
During our annual Holiday Party, QAI employees generously donated canned food to the Maryland Food Bank. In addition, a valuable donation was made to OCEARCH, a world leader in generating critical scientific data related to tracking and biological studies of keystone marine species, in conjunction with conservation outreach and education.
290 Konica Minolta employees participated in Movember, an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues. Employees raised an amazing $12,853, and the company donated an additional $5,000!
In honor of National Heart Month, Konica Minolta invited employees and customers to share their photos using the #bizhublove hashtag. For every picture posted, the company donated to the American Heart Association. More than 100 photos were shared, and Konica Minolta donated $2,500 to the cause.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Konica Minolta initiated a “Food for Thought” summer food drive, during which more than 15 Konica Minolta locations across the country participated. As a whole, the company collected and distributed nearly 9,200 items to local food banks.
To work towards its mission of improving early childhood education, Konica Minolta created the annual initiative, Books2BETTER. Konica Minolta employees at offices nationwide gathered and donated books to underprivileged young readers in their local communities.
In addition, 20 Konica Minolta offices across the U.S. worked with local schools and youth organizations in a Back-to-School Drive. This resulted in more than 7,000 school supplies being donated to local students in need.
