Axalta Canada Employees Help Pack 50,000 Meals for Children in Need

AJAX, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Employees of Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of
liquid and powder coatings, joined other volunteers this weekend to pack
50,000 meals for Kids Against Hunger® Canada. This was the
second consecutive year that Axalta employees supported this effort,
held at the Forest Brook Community Church in Ajax, Ontario on Saturday,
April 23, 2016.

The Rotary Club of Ajax, with support from the Town of Ajax, organizes
the day-long event annually. Volunteers from the community and from
local businesses like Axalta, gave their time and enthusiasm to pack
meals for thousands of underprivileged children in Canada and overseas.

“Without healthy, nutritional meals children are unable to grow, thrive
and learn,” said Donna Bright, Secretary, Rotary Club of Ajax, whose
responsibilities include volunteer recruitment. “Although food support
is a temporary fix, a $1.50 will provide six meals and helps to give
children a head start. The Rotary Club of Ajax is proud to work with
community volunteers to pack and donate 50,000 meals to areas where
there is need.”

“As Axalta celebrates its 60th year in Ajax, it reminds me that being a
good neighbor is about giving back,” said Paul Chaney, Axalta Plant
Manager-Ajax. “I am extremely proud of our employees that selflessly
took time out of their weekend to give back to children in our community
and beyond.”

Kids Against Hunger Canada is a registered Canadian charity, whose
mission is to end child hunger. They package and ship highly nutritious,
life-saving meals to starving and malnourished children within Canada
and developing countries around the world. For more information visit
