CAMBRIDGE, Ohio (Dec. 9, 2010)—LMI Custom Mixing L.L.C. and its sister company Edgetech I.G. donated books and supplies for children on the Caribbean island of Grenada, where a significant number of citizens live in poverty.
The two companies collected 5,000 books and enough additional supplies for 80 children, including pencils, erasers, scissors, glue and crayons.
“A friend of the company is working with children in Grenada and told us of the great need for school supplies,” said Jim Nixon, LMI Custom Mixing general manager. “We had an incredible response from employees, friends and industry partners who were eager to help the cause.”
LMI's logistics partner, Conway, also shipped the 6,000 pounds worth of supplies at a deeply discounted rate, Nixon said.
