Broomfield, Colorado-based Ball Corp. has announced, along with the Ball Foundation and its employees, their donation efforts of more than $4 million to charitable organizations in the communities where the company operates in 2015.

Through the Ball Community Ambassadors program, which encourages North American employees to support the causes that matter to them by giving and volunteering, employee donations and the company match grew to more than $2.5 million in 2015, up from $2.1 million in 2014, according to the company. Employees also logged more than 32,000 hours of volunteer service.

The Ball Foundation says it invested more than $1 million into community programs that create a positive, measurable impact on education, recycling, food security and disaster relief in the U.S. Globally, Ball’s plants donated more than $428,000 and organized events, such as recycling, food and school supply drives, to benefit causes and charitable organizations in their local communities.

“We are committed to being a good neighbor, corporate citizen and employer of choice in all of our communities around the world,” says Kathleen Pitre, vice president of communications and corporate relations, and executive director of The Ball Foundation. “As demonstrated by their generous donations and volunteer efforts, our employees are very passionate about making a difference in our communities and helping those in need.”

Founded in December 2010, the Ball Foundation, a nonprofit, says its mission is to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations that sustain the communities in which we live and operate by improving and promoting education, recycling and community engagement.

Ball Corp. supplies innovative, sustainable packaging solutions for beverage, food and household products customers, as well as aerospace and other technologies and services primarily for the U.S. government.
