DuPont Retirees, Florence

Retirees Club Charities

For 54 years our DuPont Plant has been a strong corporate citizen in the Florence area. The Retiree’s Club decided to carry on the DuPont tradition!  Although many of our club members volunteer for other programs in the area; our Retiree’s Club decided to collect money during the year and then choose charities in the local area to donate
The Charities Program
We decided to take up cash donations at all club functions throughtout the year.  At the end of the year, the "Charities" committee recommends worthy charities to support in the Florence area.  The Retiree's Club votes at our November meeting on the distribution of this fund.  The committee: Steve Love, Chairman, Joe Lett, Wayne Wilson and Jim MacMillian.
