Pomeroy and its employees recognize the importance of giving back to the community. This giving back takes many forms, from international disaster relief to local community support to green initiatives. Recent programs that exemplify Pomeroy’s commitment to community include: 

United Way –Pomeroy’s 2014 United Way campaign was a milestone event. In the company's fifth annual campaign, employees pledged funds for United Way organizations in Greater Cincinnati and around the U.S. that placed the company on the Top 25 list of corporate campaigns. Pomeroy’s 2013 campaign earned a third-consecutive WOW! Award for impressive year-over-year growth. In 2012, Pomeroy received the prestigious Community Care Days award for excellence in volunteering. Through the Pomeroy Cares committee, employees organized and volunteered in 11 projects with 300-plus employees and more than 450 hours of service.

Disaster Relief – Employees and the company contributed to the American Red Cross to support humanitarian and business recovery efforts in the wake of both the tornadoes that ripped through the Greater Cincinnati area in early 2012 and Superstorm Sandy which struck in October 2012.

Education – Pomeroy employees serve as reading coaches for elementary school students as part of the Northern Kentucky Education Council’s 'One to One: Practicing Reading with Students' program. The volunteers work throughout the school year with first-, second- and third-grade students struggling with fundamental reading skills. In 2014 Pomeroy sponsored a team in the INTERalliance IT Careers Camp. Twenty high school students competed in a problem-solving 'Olympics' on Pomeroy’s corporate campus. 

Environment – Each year Pomeroy helps employees celebrate Earth Day by hosting an e-waste recycling event on its corporate campus. Employees drop off unwanted electronic gear for recycling in a secure and environmentally responsible way. In 2010 Pomeroy began initiatives on its corporate campus to promote recycling and reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

Community Volunteering – To support United Way-funded agencies and programs, Pomeroy employees created the Pomeroy Cares team. Throughout the year, the team sponsors activities that help employees make a difference in the community. With the team’s help employees donate grocery items for a food drive, prepare meals for cancer patients and their caregivers, participate in fund-raising walks for organizations including the American Cancer Society, and form teams for events such as the Great American Clean Up.

Whatever the project, whatever the task, the employees of Pomeroy are passionate in their commitment to being involved in their communities and sharing their good fortune with others.
