While we are focused on manufacturing ball and roller bearings all year long, at PEER Bearing we are also focused on reaching out to our community and helping people in need, both locally here in Illinois and around the world. This time of year, as we celebrate the holidays and begin a new year, it’s the perfect time to talk about our company’s philanthropic philosophy and efforts.
We believe in helping and serving people in need. Each year, PEER Bearing employees participate in a Giving Tree program to help families in our local community celebrate the holidays. Giving back to our local community and helping people is something we’re dedicated to doing all year long. We are also active participants in Feeding America and its local partner, the Northern Illinois Food Bank. No one should be hungry, and helping to solve the hunger problem is something we are committed to doing. Through the Feeding America program and the Northern Illinois Food Bank, we are doing our part to help.
The Northern Illinois Food Bank provides food and services to more than 71,000 people each week right here in Illinois, where PEER’s U.S. headquarters is located. But, the Food Bank’s efforts are part of a much more extensive program throughout the U.S. The Feeding America website says the organization serves 46.5 million Americans in need and that “hunger is tough any time of year -- but it’s tougher during the holidays.” PEER Bearing sponsors initiatives throughout the year, including our Customer Service Week program, to help feed hungry people in Illinois and across the U.S.
But PEER Beairng is a global company with locations in Asia, Mexico, Latin America, South America and Europe, so the PEER Bearing family and our community extends around the world. We enjoy helping as many people as we can, and we hope to participate in many more charitable and philanthropic programs around the world in the coming months and years. We’d be happy to tell you more about our charitable philanthropic efforts and plans, or about our company. Contact us at 1-800-433-7337 or visit the PEER Bearing website for more information.
