Standard Textile has been recognized as part of United Way’s Top 25 workplace givers in the 2020 campaign. Thanks to the help of our generous and caring community of associates, Standard Textile helped raise significant funds during this fall’s United Way campaign, addressing great need in the Greater Cincinnati region.

“We support United Way’s work to ensure the health, education, and financial stability of those most vulnerable in our community,” said Gary Heiman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Standard Textile. “I thank all of our associates for their participation and generosity in the 2020 campaign, particularly as our communities and our neighbors continue to face significant challenges related to the pandemic.”

The tremendous work that resulted in $50 million for United Way of Greater Cincinnati’s 2020 annual campaign was recognized at a virtual campaign celebration event on January 21. The list of winners is available here.

Empowering and promoting the social and economic inclusion of all is a core value for Standard Textile. Throughout the turmoil and uncertainty of 2020, United Way of Greater Cincinnati – with community support from Standard Textile associates and many other caring individuals – responded to the pandemic in numerous ways.

Including:

  • Distributing $7.2 million in aid to more than 250 nonprofits within the first two months of the pandemic, and distributing nearly $1 million in direct aid and rent relief.
  • Distributing more than 1.6 million masks and 28,000 bottles of sanitizer.
  • Issuing more than $600,000 in Black Empowerment Works grants.
  • Partnering to bring digital equity into more than 1,200 Northern Kentucky homes, helping more than 2,600 children learn remotely.
  • Bringing more than 15,000 books to Clermont County’s preschoolers so they could still learn and have fun during isolation.
  • Delivering more than 15,000 Notes of Encouragement to isolated seniors throughout Greater Cincinnati.

The caring community of Standard Textile associates exemplifies our purpose of inspiring care, comfort, and change in our communities.
