HILLSBOROUGH, N.C., March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In line with the record-breaking 2012 Adam & Eve (www.AdamAndEve.com/news) recently celebrated, America's most trusted source for adult products is happy to announce it also made many charitable donations. The adult products company donated to over 80 non-profit organizations during the year, with donations totaling more than $80,000.
With large contributions to Planned Parenthood, Duke Hospice, the American Heart Association and the Sexual Health Education Chair at the University of Minnesota Medical School, and smaller ones to local schools and organizations, AdamAndEve.com rounded out the year with its annual drives for Thanksgiving meals and the Angel Tree program headed up by Orange County Social Services.
Along with corporate contributions, Adam & Eve employees helped too. A large portion of the $80,000 was raised by employees of Adam & Eve at various fundraisers through the year. Also, since the company matches contributions raised or given by employees, their efforts were doubled. Donations were given to non-profit groups spanning from international and national, to locally-based.
In addition to financial contributions, employees continued to donate their time and efforts for many physical causes. Some have become a regular part of Adam & Eve's community services like Meals on Wheels, Adopt a Highway, blood drives, and condom donations to health service centers.
"Spreading the wealth is something you hear less and less about these days, especially from a private enterprise," says longtime employee Peg Eaton. "Adam and Eve is certainly an exception. It seems that the more profits the company makes, the more it gives back to the community. I am so proud to work for a company that really cares about people."
With close to 350 employees, Adam & Eve and its parent company, PHE, Inc., are known in the community for their charitable attitude and efforts. This is part of what helped them become America's most trusted source for adult products.
