Eton Color Center
Eton Color Center is a small department with only 27 associates, but that doesn’t stop them from making a significant impact in their community. The team has a food drive each quarter, where boxes are put outside break rooms and employees are encouraged to donate nonperishable food items. At the end of the quarter, all the donations are taken to a charity that the employees choose. Team members said they enjoy these projects because they know when they come together as a team, they can to do more for the communities than if they were donating individually.
In the first quarter of 2018, they collected 96 pounds of food for the Blue Ridge Georgia Food Pantry.
