Russell Standard is committed to investing in our employees, their families and our local communities through the following organizations:
The LaMar White Fund is a 501 (C) (3) charitable organization created in 2007 in memory of D. LaMar White who died tragically on June 25, 2007. LaMar was an employee of Russell Standard’s Hammaker East Division located in Fayetteville, PA.The LaMar White Fund exists for our employees through individual donations by our employees. By donating to the Fund, employees can feel confident that their entire financial gift goes directly to employees in need of shelter, food, clothing or funeral expenses. The Company also automatically matches employee donations between $25 and $1,000. Contributors to the LaMar White Fund may be eligible to claim tax deductions for their donations.
The Russell Standard Foundation furthers the philanthropic goals of the Company. The Foundation makes grants to qualified charitable organizations and provides scholarships to eligible children of employees. The scholarship program was created to recognize outstanding academic achievement of the children in our Russell Standard family and to encourage post-secondary education. The Foundation’s grants can be applied to tuition and fees, and/or course-related expenses such as books, supplies and equipment at accredited post-secondary education institutions.
