HanesBrands and Its Employees Raise More than $2.2 Million for United Way of Forsyth County, N.C.
"HanesBrands has been an outstanding partner to the United Way over the years and especially this year, as they loaned us two of their top executives, Rich Noll and Mike Ernst, to chair the campaign and made a special gift on top of the wonderful campaign they ran this year," said Cindy Gordineer, president and CEO of United Way of Forsyth County. "Hanes is a seven-time winner of the United Way of North Carolina Spirit Award for Campaign Excellence, and the company exemplifies the spirit of generosity in our community and we are so appreciative of their support."
The United Way of North Carolina awarded Hanes with its 2013 Spirit of North Carolina Award for campaign excellence and for having the best business campaign of any North Carolina company with 2,501 to 5,000 employees. This is the company's seventh Spirit Award. The United Way of Forsyth County honored Hanes and its employees with the "Decade of Excellence" award in 2011, recognizing the company's commitment to community volunteerism and financial support.
