|From the Whittier Daily News:
What do you do with your company-branded clothing and office supplies when your business changes its logo?
“Indymac Bank and its employees take great pride in finding creative ways to help local organizations in our communities,” said Grove Nichols, Indymac’s executive vice president of corporate communications and culture. “We hope other companies will follow our lead by donating items when there’s a change in corporate image instead of disposing of them.”
Indymac’s donation included polo shirts, denim shirts, tank tops, T-shirts, sweatshirts and wind-shirts as well as a variety of office supplies and corporate gifts, including canvas tote bags, blankets, mugs, clocks, pens and picture frames.
The promos were worth over $100,000 and went to various local charities.
