How Philips LIVES UNITED
Through the cooperative efforts of Philips General Purchasing, Philips Real Estate, Andover site Facilities (Jones Lang LaSalle), the site community relations program, and OfficeMax, our preferred office supplies vendor, Philips in Andover recently donated more than $10,000 worth of new Hewlett-Packard printers to the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley.
The 26 HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 Wireless Multifunction Devices, valued at $10,500, were earned by Philips through PurchasEdge, an HP rewards program that awards members with points based on the dollars they spend on qualifying printer supplies. Points can then be redeemed for a variety of HP products. Gail Bell, Phillips' OfficeMax account manager notified the company about the program.
Philips redeemed 59,800 points to order the devices, which were donated to the United Way of Massachusetts Bayand Merrimack Valley's Gifts In-Kind Program. The program takes new and used furniture, office supplies, computer equipment, and other usable items and makes them available to community agencies, which operate with limited budgets and greatly benefit from donations. The printers have been ear-marked for nonprofit agencies located in the Merrimack Valley.
This donation to the United Way is one terrific example of Philips' internal groups cooperating with external vendors and community partners to make a difference in our communities.
Thanks to Kathy Roger, Gail Bell and the rest of the Philips staff for LIVING UNITED!
