Auburn Support to the Community

United Way 

The Auburn Site actively supports the United Way and its agencies in the tri-city area. Many of our employees participate in the annual Day of Caring to help others in the community by raking leaves, painting and making repairs to the homes of several families each year.

Responsible Care®

The Auburn Site supports the Responsible Care® initiative of the American Chemistry Council. This public program represents our commitment to the continuous improvement of the health, safety and environmental performance of not only the employees on our Site, but also in the community in which we operate. In 2006 the Auburn Site will become registered to RC14001, the Responsible Care® environmental standard that encompasses the requirements of both Responsible Care® and ISO14001.

Support for Education

The Dow Corning Auburn Site believes that quality education is critical to the future well-being of our community and Dow Corning.  As a manufacturer of chemicals, the Dow Corning Auburn Site is interested in supporting educational activities that encourage the understanding of mathematics, science, and technology.

The Dow Corning Auburn Site/Bay City Western School Partnership works together on identified needs, by sharing resources to expand and enrich learning opportunities for students, teachers, and Auburn Site employees through the utilization of business and educational resources in the community. Annually the Auburn Site awards one scholarship to a Bay City Western high school student.

Auburn Site employees are partnering with Longview Elementary School in the Lunchbox Learners program. Volunteers are matched up one-on-one with a child, with an agreement to spend 30 minutes together reading at lunchtime once a week. The objective of the program is to help young children learn to read, but equally important, each volunteer serves as a mentor to help the child develop self-esteem.  

Auburn Site employees volunteer as Junior Achievement consultants in local classrooms.  Volunteers teach students about the business economy, how it impacts their lives and how to become an active part of the business environment as they grow up.  At the high school level, volunteers assist the students in forming a company, designing and marketing a product and then closing the company at the end of the semester.

The Auburn Site also considers requests for funding from schools and organizations in our immediate surrounding area.  Among the items that the site has contributed toward are the purchase of new math software and computers for use in grade school classrooms.
