At Chiesi USA, social responsibility is central to our mission statement. We greatly value the partnerships we’ve established with nationwide patient organizations and non-healthcare related community-based charities.
Our employees desire to give back to the communities where we live and work and aspire to partner with the patients and caregivers in our therapeutic areas. Through this focus, we have made a commitment to:
It’s in our culture to aspire to do more, and we always have fun in the process.
Chiesi USA was proud to act as a presenting sponsor of WRAL’s 30th annual Coats For The Children campaign. In addition to a $5,000 donation, an intrepid group of Chiesi USA employees braved the winter weather to join the WRAL team in-studio to accept phone pledges on behalf of Triangle children in need.
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s BackPack Buddies program provides children from food-insecure homes with healthy weekend meals during the school year. In 2018, Chiesi USA was able to support this effort through a food drive and in-office packing event yielding over 760 Back Packs!
Each year the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) brings the Wide Open Bluegrass World of Bluegrass Weekend Festival to downtown Raleigh. As the largest urban bluegrass festival in the world, the event drives significant cultural and economic impact on our community. Since 2015, Chiesi USA has acted as presenting sponsor of the festival.
In 2018, Chiesi USA had a blast partnering with the Glass Jug Beer lab to raise funds, and brew a signature beer, for this year’s Hops For Hope event at the Raleigh Beer Garden. We were proud to raise over $3,300 for Children’s Flight of Hope
For the first time, Chiesi USA was able to participate in the Activate Good, 9/11 Day of Service. A group of over 15 Chiesi USA employees descended upon Marbles Kids Museum to help staff prepare exhibits for visiting Triangle families.
In 2018 Chiesi USA was excited to start working with a new partner, Poe Magnet Elementary School. To help kick-off the new school year, Chiesi USA employees packed over 700 “welcome back” kits for teachers and students. We were honored to be asked by Poe staff to join them for the first day of school, standing side-by-side with other members of the Raleigh community to greet students as they embarked on an incredible 2018-2019 academic year.
Over the 2018 championship season, Chiesi USA committed to making donations for every strikeout thrown by a Durham Bulls pitcher during home games. Bulls pitchers delivered an almost record season, leading to a donation total of $15,000. We were excited to divide the amount raised between three incredible partners: Children’s Flight of Hope, Me Fine Foundation and Inter Faith Food Shuttle.
Chiesi USA employees worked side-by-side with Me Fine Foundation to assemble gift packs for their inaugural Christmas In July event. We were honored to participate, and hope the gifts brightened the day of families with children in the neonatal intensive care units across the Triangle.
