Employees Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity

Beginning in March, Active Organics® employees volunteered 80 hours of service with Habitat for Humanity® of Denton County, Texas. They painted, poured cement, installed hardware and fixtures, caulked, etc. working hard to make a home for a deserving family in the community.

Habitat Denton County, Texas, is an independently chartered affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, which developed the Habitat model of partnership housing: "We don't build houses for needy families, we build houses with them." Owners-to-be worked 350-400 hours on the construction site alongside thousands of volunteers. Volunteers are one part of what makes the houses affordable. The other part is a zero-interest mortgage that allows homeowners to pay back the cost of their house through monthly payments that they can afford.

Paso Robles Employees Walk for Hunger

Our Paso plant employees enjoyed a month of different fund raising activities for the San Luis Obispo County Food Bank, netting a donation of more than $1800! Our effort was topped off by joining with others, county wide, on the Hunger Walk. The Paso crew met, checked in, got their T-shirts and posed for a few pictures before they started off on their walk around Atascadero Lake. Many thanks go to Team Lubrizol for representing the plant on this beautiful day.

Lubrizol Mexico Helps the Three Wise Men

In Mexico, we celebrate this wonderful tradition of gift-giving by the Three Wise Men. The night of January 5, the kids leave a letter at their Christmas tree mentioning how well they behaved during the previous year and asking for special gifts. Then they go to bed and hope that when they wake up the Three Wise Men had visited them and left the requested gifts under the tree. Unfortunately, for the kids with chronic diseases staying at the hospital, with monthly treatments or with parents in terminal phases, the Three Wise Men cannot afford to bring them gifts. But there are several organizations that collect and deliver toys for them.  More...

Lubrizol Singapore Reaches out to the Community

As part of our tradition and commitment to give back to the community, Lubrizol Singapore organizes a series of community service activities through 2013.

Unlike previous years where we organized one big event per year, in 2013, we adopted a home for the elderly, the Henderson Home. During 2013, we organized several smaller scale activities with the residents of Henderson Home on weekday evenings (after work). Through these regular fun-filled interactions, we have built personal friendships with the residents.

The average turnout at these activities is about 20 volunteers and 10 residents. A very big thanks to all those who have supported these activities in one way or another.
