Annin employees ‘Light It Up Blue’

| April 8, 2014

COSHOCTON – April 2 was the kick off day at Annin Flagmakers, Ohio for Autism Awareness month. To support and assist with awareness, a “Light It Up Blue” sign is placed on the side of the facility and the front of the facility is lit up at night with blue lights.

Employees are very involved in supporting this cause by wearing blue on Wednesdays throughout the month of April and to assist with raising money for the cause through donations, cookie sales, Autism t-shirt sales and lunches, etc.  There are several employees at Annin who have family members with autism.

Last year the employees donated $2,700. The donation was split between three of the local schools (Coshocton, River View and Ridgewood) to assist children with disabilities and a portion was sent to the Autism Awareness foundation. The goal this year is to raise $4,000 so the company can assist additional schools. This year it will be donating to five of the local schools (River View, Coshocton, Ridgewood, Newcomerstown and Hopewell).

If other employees from other Annin facilities would like to contribute to this cause, please feel free to send a check to Rachel Romine at the Coshocton, OH facility.  Checks can be made out to Team Annin.
