Wenco and the Community
Wenco believes in the importance of operating our business in an ethical and responsible manner. We know that as a corporate citizen our social responsibility extends beyond our walls and so we maintain strong connections with the communities in which we operate. Growing and maintaining these community bonds is accomplished through corporate gifting, sponsorships, employee-directed programs, food drives, children’s holiday gift donations, blood drives, and more.
Wenco is proud to have worked with the following organizations:
