PINE GROVE, PA – Solar Innovations® Architectural Glazing Systems received the Community Involvement Excellence Award during the 2017 Northeast PA Manufacturers & Employers Association Awards Dinner on Tuesday, May 2, 2017.

The Solar Innovations® team made exceptional strides in community involvement in the past year, with 87% employee participation in the most recent charitable donation campaign.

“Solar Cares,” the company’s community service campaign, is focused on building strong and positive relationships with the local community. Solar Innovations® provides various types of incentives for the team to encourage their participation, such as allowing office team members to wear jeans for two months when donating a specific dollar amount, number of goods, or time spent volunteering, and raffling off vacation hours for shop team members.

In addition to quarterly fundraisers, the Solar Cares Team participates in various other events throughout the year. The Solar Innovations® core values of “Live and Work Green” and “Build Strength Through Teamwork” shine through their efforts to educate community members about proper care of the environment and do their part to keep children active and outside experiencing the environment. The team is just as passionate about education and the ability to inspire others. They are proud to be able to host a variety of tours for student programs and related organizations within the surrounding area to teach them about manufacturing, career paths, and job opportunities within the county.

The “Solar Cares” campaign, along with additional community outreach programs, provides a meaningful connection with the local community by offering opportunities to improve and enrich the lives of others. Volunteering and connecting with the community has become ingrained in Solar Innovations® culture. To team members and the local community, Solar Innovations® is more than just a corporate entity.

Solar Innovations® is a single source provider of custom glazed structures, skylights, windows, and doors. Their extensive product line ranges from greenhouses to folding glass walls.
