Group at Thermo Fisher helps Angel Tree program
MARIETTA — Thermo Fisher’s IES Digital Training Solutions Group has adopted 15 children registered for the Washington County Salvation Army’s Angel Tree that provides Christmas gifts to local underprivileged children.
The group today will present the newly-purchased gifts to the Marietta Community Foundation on behalf of the Salvation Army at Thermo Fisher Scientific on Ohio 821.
Members of the group bring a positive impact toward local philanthropy, according to Casey Corbett, senior manager of the Digital Training Solutions Group. ”
“A positive work environment is more than just receiving a pay-check and benefits,” Corbett said. “We create a positive environment, here at DTSG, through team building and a cooperative mindset. That’s how we became involved with the Angel Tree Program.”
The group decided to sponsor 15 children in this year’s Angel Tree program through the Salvation Army and Marietta Community Foundation.
Mason Beuhring, the former communications director for the foundation, joined the Digital Training Solutions Group earlier this year. However, the work the foundation accomplishes in Washington County left an impression on Beuhring.
“For two and a half years at the foundation, I was able to see community members rally around the issues the foundation was trying to provide solutions to,” said Beuhring, a technical application Specialist I in the Digital Training Solutions Group. “Now, thanks to Thermo Fisher, and the team at DTSG, we can help in these efforts.”
The Digital Training Solutions Group purchased about $1,500 in gifts for children participating in the Angel Tree program. The team then invited representatives of the foundation and Salvation Army to its facility in Marietta to present the gifts to them.
“We are so thankful for the Digital Training Solutions Group at Thermo Fisher,” said Heather Allender, president & CEO of the Community Foundation. “Support from corporations and businesses is vital to the success of our programs.”
As the Training Solutions Group continues to grow, the team looks forward to finding new ways to contribute to the community, according to Corbett.
“Our team is made up of a diverse group of individuals with diverse skill sets, backgrounds, and interests,” Corbett said. “I look forward to continuing to empower our team to find ways to give back to the causes in our area.”
