Employees exceeded the campaign goal during the six-week campaign and gave more than $550,000, which the Ball Foundation matched to further increase the impact on Ball's communities. During the same period, employees volunteered more than 2,400 hours for community organizations, surpassing the goal of 1,000 hours.

"At Ball, we strive to enrich the communities in which we live and work by donating money and time to support organizations, programs and civic initiatives that advance sustainable livelihoods," said John Hayes, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "It is important for us to be a good neighbor and corporate citizen, and we're proud that our company and our employees can make a difference."

In September, the Ball Foundation also committed $1 million to nonprofit organizations assisting with Colorado flood relief efforts, including Community Food Share, Impact on Education Foundation for Boulder Valley Schools and the Foothills United Way's Foothills Flood Relief Fund. Additionally, in the coming months, Ball will provide employees with opportunities to volunteer and assist with recovery and rebuilding activities in areas impacted by the floods. Ball employs approximately 8,000 people in North America.
