HanesBrands And Its Employees Raise More Than $2.2 Million For United Way Of Forsyth County, N.C., And Earn Another United Way Award For Campaign Excellence

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Feb. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HanesBrands announced today that the company and its employees raised $2.22 million for the United Way of Forsyth County, exceeding its goal for the 2012 campaign. The successful campaign relied on another year of generous donations by Hanes' 2,500 Forsyth County employees and all-time high proceeds of $546,000 from the company's three community product sales. "HanesBrands employees opened their hearts and wallets yet again to help those most in need in our community," said Ann Fritchman, HanesBrands chief customer officer, Target, and 2012 campaign chairperson. "The generous gifts from our employees will help the United Way improve financial stability for many, increase graduation rates, find shelter for our homeless veterans and combat hunger for children during a time when the need is increasing not diminishing." In addition, as part of the campaign the company and its employees also donated 23,000 pounds of food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC, one of United Way's 32 partner agencies, and Hanes granted paid time off to 400 headquarters employees to volunteer for a Day of Caring at 11 local community agencies. The United Way of North Carolina has awarded Hanes with its 2012 Spirit of North Carolina Award for campaign excellence and for having the best business campaign of any North Carolina company with 2,501 to 5,000 employees. This is the company's sixth Spirit award since 2006. The United Way of Forsyth County honored Hanes and its employees, who have donated more than $32 million over the past decade, with the "Decade of Excellence" award in 2011, recognizing the company's commitment to community volunteerism and financial support. "We are profoundly grateful for HanesBrands' support," said Cindy Gordineer, president and CEO of United Way of Forsyth County. "HanesBrands is a wonderful corporate partner to the United Way, and its commitment is impressive. There is a true philosophy of giving back to the community, as evidenced by the number of employees who participate in the annual Day of Caring, the community product sale which is United Way's largest fundraiser, and the strong overall giving to the annual United Way campaign." Fritchman echoed that sentiment. "Winning the Spirit of North Carolina Award again is a tribute to our company and employees for the energy and creativity they brought to this year's campaign, and for their ongoing financial support of United Way of Forsyth County," Fritchman said.
