Fairmont Supply supports charitable efforts

Through its corporate outreach program, Fairmont Supply has supported more than 15 community-based near its Washington County Pennsylvania headquarters and beyond.

“Community involvement and volunteering are simply part of the way we do business. Although we believe our efforts make us a better company, we recognize that the real value is the betterment of our communities,” said Paul Fichiera, president and CEO of Fairmont Supply. “Giving back has been a fundamental part of Fairmont’s identity for almost 100 years. I am humbled by our employees’ generosity whether it is packaging and boxing food supplies for seniors, sponsoring a walk for cancer, or through a simple act of kindness. “

One way Fairmont supports local charities is through team service days for organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Washington County Food Bank, Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Marine Toys for Tots, Boy Scouts of America, and The American Cancer Society.

Beyond Fairmont’s corporate outreach initiatives, employees are also involved independently. Matt Babko, vice president of information technology and eCommerce, has been a volunteer fireman for 17 years. He believes that there is a tangible opportunity to give back and help shape the community.

“On a regular basis, you’ll find Fairmont team members serving individually on the boards of local organizations to help people in need. Our company is very proud of that,” Babko said.
