SALEM, NJ, July 25, 2017—As part of its commitment to being a good corporate citizen in all the communities where it has operations, Mannington Mills – parent company of Burke Industries, based in San Jose, Calif., -- has donated $10,000 to the local nonprofit organization Silicon Valley FACES.
Keith Campbell, Chairman of the Board of Mannington Mills, Inc., presents the donation check to Tuyen Fiack, Executive Director of Silicon Valley FACES.
Silicon Valley FACES is dedicated to creating and promoting an empathetic and inclusive community free of bias, bigotry and violence.
