Evonik Cyro’s Osceola Plant Donates $3,300 To The Junior Auxiliary of Osceola

Funds To Provide Presents To Area Children In December

Evonik Cyro LLC has donated $3,300 to the Junior Auxiliary of Osceola, a non-profit organization that serves the needs of the area’s children through service and educational projects.

"We are extremely pleased by the generous donation from Evonik Cyro," said Jennifer Ephlin, president of the Junior Auxiliary of Osceola. “Evonik’s contribution will be used for our Angel Tree program that we sponsor to help the needy families of South Mississippi County give children a special Christmas. We purchase items that the children may want or need for Christmas, such as clothes, shoes, books, bicycles, and toys. We want the children who otherwise might not have a present under the tree to have a happy holiday season.”

John Rolando, President of Evonik Performance Polymers North America, noted that corporate citizenship is the cornerstone of Evonik Cyro’s operations, which is why Performance Polymers’ management supported the Osceola plant’s recommendation to donate to the Junior Auxiliary. “Our community involvement through financial support of nonprofit organizations and community activities helps create a thriving community. We have always been impressed by the work of the Junior Auxiliary of Osceola and are happy we can assist this noteworthy organization and bring a happier holiday to area children.”

Jim Bunn, Evonik’s Osceola plant manager, added that Evonik continually supports the local community through financial assistance and the promotion of volunteerism among its employees. “We actively seek to support the communities where we live, play and work,” Bunn said. “Evonik Cyro strives to provide opportunities that improve the lives of individuals in our area and we are proud to support the unique programs offered by the Junior Auxiliary of Osceola.”
