Employees across the Infineum world have been busy over the Christmas period adding a little festive sparkle to the lives of others.
Every year our employees based in New Jersey, North America get involved in community initiatives ranging from donating food and gifts to disadvantaged people, to transforming into Santa Claus and his merry bunch of elves for local children.
More than 260 children in New Jersey received gifts from Santa and his Infineum elves
In total, employees at our Linden site donated 66 food boxes, and gift cards to the value of $200, for distribution by local community organisations. They also filled personalised bags based on children’s clothing and toy wish lists, as well as giving gifts to teenagers with behavioural, drug and abuse issues during a visit to a local Health Centre.
Employees at Infineum’s Milton Hill site in the UK also thought of others over the Christmas period by donating more than 120 presents to their local Children’s Hospital, in Oxford. Donations ranged from baby clothing through to games and toiletries for teenagers.

I know these presents will bring smiles to the faces of our patients and their families despite their difficult circumstances,
said Damon Boughen, Community Fundraising Manager at Oxford Children’s hospital.
And employees in Brazil also helped to collect 80 toys for children up to three-years-old, in hospital after being diagnosed with a cleft palate. The toys were delivered during a party to celebrate Children’s day at the hospital. Around 200 people attended including the children, their parents, hospital staff, volunteers and Infineum employees.
