Amidst an ongoing worldwide pandemic, Samtec continues to connect with our communities. As a digital technology company, we understand the challenges and how uncertain times have been for everyone.
In early 2020, Samtec Cares suspended its normal grant cycle and concentrated fully on funding efforts directly related to COVID relief. Samtec granted an additional $200,000 within Southern Indiana specifically engaged in the battle against COVID and its effects.
Pam Grieb, the administrator for the Samtec Cares’ effort shared that, “Being a good corporate citizen in the communities where Samtec operates is part of our corporate DNA. This focused effort to give strategically to support organizations, whether it be within arts and culture, health or social services, or community development has allowed us to learn so much about local charities that are making a real difference in our communities; making them better places to live for everyone. It is nice to be able to help support them in those efforts in a small way.” Click here to learn more about Samtec Cares.
