STATESVILLE, N.C. — Doosan Portable Power employees have recently participated in the “Doosan Day of Community Service” — a company-wide volunteer effort that celebrates ongoing partnerships with communities in North America where Doosan Infracore companies do business. Doosan Portable Power is proud to have participated in the event to help make a positive impact in the Statesville, North Carolina, community.

Over a two-week period, Doosan Portable Power employees donated 6,500 pounds of nonperishable food for the Iredell Christian Ministries Food Pantry located in Statesville. The pantry provides 25,000 pounds of food each month to people in the community, and Iredell Christian Ministries serves 800 families a month.

“We wanted to make a real difference in our community,” said Mike Ballweber, president of Doosan Portable Power. “Hunger is an issue that no child, adult or family should have to face. We are grateful and humbled for the opportunity to help those in need.”

Doosan Portable Power is committed to creating an environment that encourages employees to participate in community involvement. The Doosan Day of Community Service places an emphasis on the “Doosan Way” — an organizational principle that links all Doosan Infracore employees’ values to a management system focused on community and social responsibility that can be incorporated into their daily lives. At the heart of the Doosan Way is the idea that being a good corporate citizen is an ongoing responsibility.
