Mars employees give back to the community

June 3, 2008

Albany - Some of the employees at the Mars plant in Albany gave their time for a good cause today.

Volunteers played kickball and other games... worked on computers... and did arts and crafts with children at the Boys and Girls Club in Albany this afternoon.

While the kids certainly had plenty of fun... they weren't the only ones who benefited.

"I think that's one of the great things about the associates that we have at Mars. You know we want to be great corporate citizens and we want our associates as well to be able to help develop the environment that we're in. So it's not that we're doing something for others. We're also doing it for ourselves." said Ullic Young, the Plant Manager at the Mars plant in Albany.

Young said between 40 and 50 employees from the local plant took part in today's activities.  Some only got a few hours rest after working the overnight shift.
