Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
In an effort to support the local community and to do their own part in furthering social change and progress, Superior Washer & Gasket Corp. has recently donated to Hauppauge High School’s theatre department. The gift was inspired by the “State the Change, Theatre as a Social Voice” conference. The full day event featured multiple workshops and performances in which Hauppauge High School’s students worked together to enact social change and combat bullying through their individual artistic voices.
As the effects of bullying are a concern in schools across the country, the students of Hauppauge High School have responded by raising awareness through their own vision and passion. Using the power of live performance and theatre as a catalyst for the message of anti-bullying and positive social progress, “State the Change, Theatre as a Social Voice” appealed to Superior Washer & Gasket Corp. for reasons beyond local charity contribution.
The industrial and mil-spec washer company works hard to foster and maintain its own positive culture and strong anti-bullying policies in the workplace. As a key player in the American manufacturing sector, the company wants to encourage today's youth to implement social change. By encouraging these students to be a part of this change, they are supporting tomorrow's community leaders and professional workforce. “Here at Superior Washer, we believe in supporting the arts in education and the future leaders of America, our students,” said Superior Washer & Gasket CEO Allan Lippolis. “From our management team to the press operators on the manufacturing floor, our entire company is a vital component to the surrounding community. Our desire is to further support our neighborhoods, and contributing to Hauppauge High School’s efforts to promote social change is part of our most recent efforts to do just that.”
Through this donation, the company emphasized its own stance against harassment and hoped to demonstrate its support for changing social norms in local schools, as well as today and tomorrow’s workplace.
