Greenfield Global Inc., a global leader in the production of ethanol, high-purity specialty alcohols, and solvents, recently announced the creation of the Greenfield Cares Fund, dedicated to helping local charities and groups on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.

“These are incredibly challenging times, and Greenfield is committed to addressing the needs of our communities,” said Greenfield Global president and CEO Howard Field. “The pandemic is taking a real toll on the social and economic health of so many people and communities. Though governments have been working incredibly hard, we believe it is time for businesses who are able to step up and help as well. Through the Greenfield Cares Fund, we will be supporting local organizations to help those being hardest hit by COVID-19 in the communities where we live and work.”

Since the start of the global pandemic, Greenfield has played a leading role in the supply of the vital alcohol needed for hand sanitizers used to combat the deadly disease. Through the Greenfield Cares Fund, donations will support local organizations that provide essential services, including; hunger relief, shelter assistance, and support for hospitals and frontline workers.

Since mid-April, the company has been reviewing applications sent in by local employee committees. The Greenfield Cares Fund has awarded 41 grants totalling $400,000 all to local registered charities serving the eleven communities where Greenfield employees proudly live and work throughout Canada, the United States, and Ireland.
