Faurecia North America Sites Team Up to Feed Hungry Families and Community Spirit

AUBURN HILLS, MI--Aug. 28, 2013: Faurecia North America kicks off its fourth annual community food drive next week, challenging employees in the U.S., Canada and Mexico to exceed last year's collection total of more than 700,000 meals donated to participating food banks in a corporate initiative called FUELS – Faurecia Unites with Employees for Local Service. Faurecia and its employees have provided more than 1.3 million meals since the program began in 2010.

Throughout September, which marks Hunger Action Month, Faurecia's more than 20,000 employees from its 47 locations in North America are challenged to collect the highest quantity of non-perishable food items to help fight hunger. In addition to donating food, Faurecia employees will participate in volunteer days with their local partner food banks.

"Millions of people struggle every day with hunger, which affects one in six hard-working adults, children and seniors within our own community," said W. DeWayne Wells, president of Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. "It's inspiring to see programs like FUELS, in which citizens are recognizing community needs and reaching out to their deserving neighbors. The impact it has made has been remarkable."

Now in its fourth year, FUELS continues to evolve as the program grows and participants consistently identify new ways to benefit more people in need. For the first time, employees are joining together to contribute more cash donations. A $1 donation can provide three meals. Cash donations will be used to secure food from local farmers to ensure families have access to nutritious, high quality produce, further benefiting communities by buying locally grown goods.

Faurecia will contribute monetary donations as sites' collection totals rise. For each site that meets its collection goal, the company pledges to contribute $500 to the site's local food bank partner. The site that collects the most meals per employee each week will receive an extra $1,000 donation for its food bank. Faurecia is further pledging $5,000 for one site in the U.S./Canada and one site in Mexico that collect the most meals per employee.

"Companies are more than the products they make," said Mike Heneka, president of Faurecia North America. "They are citizens of their communities and, above all, people who care about their colleagues and neighbors. FUELS is Faurecia's way of giving back to all the people and organizations that have supported us, as well as a way to help communities grow and thrive."
