Maxxam Analytics makes significant donation to show support for Golder's charity
CALGARY, Aug. 18 /CNW/ - Golder Associates Corporation ("Golder") is delighted to announce that it has received a significant donation from Maxxam Analytics International Corporation ("Maxxam") to its global corporate charity, the Golder Trust for Orphans ("the Trust"). The $8,400 CDN donation symbolises and celebrates a very close relationship between the two firms.
Since 2003, Golder employees, clients and vendors have donated over $1 million USD to the Trust, which it has invested in sustainable development projects in Africa that have thus far improved the lives of over 1000 children in 6 African countries.
Says Lea Chambers, Communications Manager for the Trust and Global Marketing Leader for Golder, "We are absolutely delighted that Maxxam is so supportive of our charity. The money they have given will be invested in projects that will allow organisations on the ground in Africa to generate their own income and therefore become self-sustaining in their quest to support children who have been devastated by the AIDS pandemic."
Says Bryan Chubb, Vice President of Environmental Business Development for Maxxam, "The Golder Trust for Orphans is a great cause and supports many worthy sustainable projects for those most in need. As a key vendor for Golder, Maxxam is often viewed as an extension of Golder project teams working together to service customers. Maxxam is pleased to join the hundreds of Golder staff across Canada who have donated to the Trust to help care for those affected by the AIDS/HIV in Africa."
Golder Associates is a respected, employee-owned, global company providing consulting, design, and construction services in earth, environment, and energy.
Maxxam is Canada's largest independent analytical laboratory services company, with expertise in environmental laboratory services, petroleum services, food safety and sciences, and pharmaceutical, forensic and DNA services.
