Our employees spend numerous hours each year volunteering their time and efforts for various organizations such as Little League, School Board, community emergency responders, Lions Club, Habitat for Humanity, local food banks, and many school organizations to name a few.
We are very proud that a number of our employees have been selected as recipients of the company-wide 3M Community Volunteer Award. This prestigious award recognizes employees and retirees who volunteer to make meaningful differences in the lives of others and our communities.
Our employees also participate in a variety of area activities including the American Heart Association “Heart Walk,” JA Bowl-a-Thon, and the Quad Cities Marathon. Over the past fifteen years, many employees have participated in “Sharing Tree,” a program which provides Christmas gifts to children in the surrounding three counties. Participation is employee driven, and the 3M Club contributes as well. In 2010, 3M Cordova employees and their families provided gifts to 175 area children.
3M Cordova is committed to our local communities and holds memberships in the Chambers of Commerce of Albany, Illinois; Fulton, Illinois; Clinton, Iowa; and the Quad Cities Chamber.
To support the community’s life-saving blood supply needs, we hold quarterly drives to supply the local Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. Annually approximately 100 units are collected.
For a number of years we have supported our local educational systems by inviting them to participate in a free product giveaway event. This event has provided an opportunity for them to obtain a variety 3M products free of charge.
