Laconia NH-

3Mgives – the charitable foundation of 3M Corporation – has awarded a cash grant in the amount of $50,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region for their building initiative. Each year 3M donates via cash or product donation through various initiatives. These initiatives include working with premier groups positively impacting climate change and biodiversity, fostering healthy youth development, encouraging youth participation in math and sciences, and the arts.

In 2013 3M brought over half a million dollars into the Northern New England region alone out of some $61 million in cash and product donations globally. “3M sees the Boys and Girls Club as a nationally recognized youth organization which develops future leaders and doers in America – and they are proud to support them,” said Barry Livingstone, Tilton’s community affairs secretary. The $50,000 grant to the Boys and Girls Club of Lakes Region represents the largest cash award to date secured by the Tilton plant for the community.

Outside the scope of the overall corporate giving, Tilton’s 3M employees also volunteered at several local organizations. Participation in volunteering activities is encouraged for 3M employees and the local plant participated in activities such as the A Day of Caring program, performing arts programs, and food drives for local food pantries. “3M employees care a great deal about their communities,” Livingstone added.

3M-Tilton Caps Off Remarkable Year of Charitable Giving with Pines Roof Project

The Pines Community Center Serves People of All Ages in the Tilton-Northfield Community

Northfield NH-

3M’s Tilton plant capped off a remarkable year of charitable giving with the completion of the Pines Community Roofing project. With a generous donation from the St. Paul parent organization, the Pines Community Center was finally able to initiate and complete their much needed roof replacement project. The Pines was but one of several grants awarded in the Lakes Region this year – as the local plant’s Community Affairs Team was highly successful in competing on behalf of local organizations for grant money.

There are several pools of funds to draw from each year as part of the global corporation’s charitable giving program. The individual plants have control over a very small amount of funds but larger pools of funds are up for grabs if you know where to look and can find community groups actively supporting charitable giving initiatives. Those initiatives include working with premier groups positively impacting climate change and biodiversity, fostering healthy youth development, encouraging youth participation in math and sciences, and encouraging the arts. In 2010 3M brought close to half a million dollars into the Northern New England region alone out of some $60 million in cash and product donations globally.

“On the local level it many times comes down to the level of commitment of the community supporting the efforts of the local 3M plant,” added Barry Livingstone, Tilton’s community affairs secretary. “In particular relative to the Pines grant, 3M’s corporate charitable giving team was moved by the two towns’ (Tilton and Northfield) voters – who insisted on keeping the Pines budget intact when it was in jeopardy last budget season. Community commitment matters at the corporate level,” he added. The $15,000 Pines grant represents the largest cash award to date secured by the Tilton plant for the community.

Outside the scope of the overall corporate giving, Tilton’s 3M employees also volunteered at several local organizations. Participation in volunteering activities is encouraged for 3M employees and the local plant participated in activities such as a trail cleanup, performing arts programs, and also held food drives for local food pantries and an animal shelter. “3M employees care a great deal about their community,” Livingstone added.

About The Pines Community Center:
The Tilton-Northfield Recreation Council, formed in 1954, was founded on and continues to be committed to the ideas of enriching peoples lives through recreation and social activities. At the Pines Community Center and throughout the communities of Tilton and Northfield NH, the council strives to provide the community with programs that are mentally, physically and socially challenging for all.

3M Tilton Teams Up with Genesis Behavioral Health to Prevent Abuse

Susan Laflamme, Barry Livingstone, and Eileen Russilillo of 3M Tilton present a grant award to Genesis Behavioral Health Executive Director Maggie Pritchard (third from left) outside Genesis' Church Street offices.

Laconia NH-

3M Tilton has awarded a grant to Genesis Behavioral Health as a leading provider of mental health treatment in the Lakes Region. Genesis provides treatment to both sexual abusers and victims of sexual abuse in Belknap and southern Grafton counties. The grant from 3M will go toward staff training for child and family clinicians working with these populations.

“This grant from 3M comes at an important time for Genesis, as budget cuts had impacted our ability to fund the kinds of training we need to service our patients,” said Maggie Pritchard, Executive Director at Genesis. According to Public Relations & Communications Manager Kristen Welch, Genesis Behavioral Health saw over 3000 patients in a broad range of categories last year – with about an even split between severe mental issues, short term problems, and children.

Catching mental health issues early is critical to preventing bigger problems later on. According to Pritchard, “We see many times in our long term care patients that there were earlier signs of trouble – which if dealt with at the time with short term care likely would have prevented the long-term health issue. Identifying the need for and getting treatment after a trauma event makes a big difference in the long term health of patients.”

People seeking help or looking for more information can contact Genesis Behavioral Health at 603-524-1100.
