Hunger Relief -- 3M "Can-Do" 3M employees, retirees, and the 3M Foundation contributed over $148,000 in the 2013 Hunger Relief Match. This annual dollar-for-dollar match provides support to selected nonprofit agencies alleviating hunger in Minnesota and Austin, Texas.
3M Legal Affairs joined the fight against hunger with their “2013 Pounds of Cuisine” food drive. Employees generously donated 16,812 pounds of food, far surpassing the goal of 2,013 pounds! The dedicated planning committee arranged several special events that the entire Legal Affairs organization enthusiastically embraced. One popular event was the “canstruction” competition in which teams from the different floors battled for the best sculpture constructed of cans and boxes of food (see photo).
Our thanks go out to our many nonprofit partners and 3M employees and retirees who work to improve lives by relieving hunger year-round.
