  • Inteva MTC Supports Casa Hogar mi Esperanza

    Inteva's Mexico Technical Center (MTC) continues to enact the company value of “We care for the world and our communities.” After seeing the immense need to support adult care centers in Juarez, Mexico, they teamed up with Casa Hogar mi Esperanza, a center that provides food, shelter and assistance to 24 adults over the age of 65 who have been rescued from the streets.

    MTC employees collected non-perishable food, clothes, blankets, personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies and cash donations over the course of a month. Their contributions will supply Casa Hogar mi Esperanza with three months of meals and supplies.

    MTC employees then delivered the food to the shelter on their personal time, bringing with them hot coffee and pastries for breakfast. They also organized fun activities for the residents,such as painting the ladies’ nails and singing to them.

    “Volunteering, solidarity and, in general, helping each other to the best of our abilities, are very important aspects of MTC’s culture. I have been with Inteva for over a year, and I am happy with how active the site is on supporting local causes and needs, with the leadership of the HR team,” said Virginia Villegas, Core Product Engineerat Inteva Juarez.

  • Inteva Troy Cares: PC&L Hosts Sock Drive, Roofs Team Volunteers at Local Food Bank

    As part of the Inteva Troy Cares program, two teams planned and executed charitable activities in March 2017. Troy Cares is an employee effort to support the local community in any way theindividual team or group chooses. The Troy PC&L team hosted a sock drive, collecting socks for the needy. The Troy Roofs team volunteered at Gleaners, a local food bank.

    For one week in March 2017, the PC&L team collected socks for infants, children and adults; any size and color were accepted. Sock collection boxes were placed throughout the building. In total, the team collected 404 pairs of socks to be donated to a non-profit organization in Detroit.
    The Troy Roofs team plans a volunteer activity each quarter and in March 2017, the team sorted and organized food donations at Gleaners. Twelve volunteers from the Roofs team participated and it was a happy coincidence that GM was also volunteering at Gleaners during the same time! Together, the Inteva and GM volunteer teams were able to pack 6,034 pounds of food, enough to impact the lives of 5,129 people!
    “What is surprising to us is how many families in southeast Michigan go hungry and without necessary daily nutrition,” said Sheleena Totharam, Design Supervisor, Roofs Product Line. “What is not surprising is how much good food goes to waste on a daily basis. Gleaners, with the help of volunteers, has found a way to rescue this wasted food and channel it toward solving a very basic human problem – hunger! Gleaners provides food to soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters and other agencies through southeast Michigan. What’s not to love about that?”
