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.
Colorful, engaging spaces inspire learning and creativity. Several of our colleagues joined forces with Activate Good to paint various sections of the school with beautiful, nature-inspired murals and encouraging phrases for students. These creations will serve students and staff for many years to come.
Colleagues joined National Wear Red Day® 2022 with the American Heart Association. Chiesi was a proud sponsor of the local North Carolina Triangle event.
Chiesi USA entered a year-long partnership with The Superhero Project INC to make a difference one hospital at a time. The sponsorship supports families whose children are in the NICU. Chiesi will help hospitals bolster their programs that promote bonding between parents, caregivers, and newborns.
During a training class with an emphasis on Chiesi’s core value “Act as a Force for Good”, colleagues packed 164 boxes of food in one afternoon for Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
Through Chiesi in the Community, we were able to make more than $815,000 in contributions to our community partners in 2021. As an employee-led program, Chiesi colleagues supported 85 unique charitable organizations with 1,124 hours of time or donations.
As part of Chiesi’s 2021 We ACT event, our home office team partnered with Activate Good to pack 475 student school supply kits and 60 teacher appreciation baskets for Millbrook Magnet Elementary School. Additionally, the Boston Office held a Meal Packing event yielding 1,000 packed and labeled entrees and Field/Remote teams packed and donated around 2,900 pounds of food in 171 meal kits to local charities.
Chiesi USA partnered with Neuse River Brewing Co. & Brasserie for the annual Hops for Hope event benefitting Children’s Flight of Hope in 2021. The team completely smashed company goal of raising $10,000 with a total that exceeded $50,000. Together with our brewery partner, 2021’s concoction was a tasty Tipsy Scientist Pink Limoncello. In total, this event raised $290,000.
Chiesi USA continues to be a presenting sponsor of WRAL’s annual Coats for the Children campaign. In addition to donations from Chiesi USA employees of hats, gloves, and other cold-weather necessities, Chiesi USA gives a monetary donation. This year, we could not participate live at the WRAL studio to accept phone pledges, so we joined the campaign virtually to present our donation of $5,000 in support of this mission.
This year COVID-19 prevented us from conducting our usual "back-to-school kit" packing event held in our office. In coordination with Activate Good, the Chiesi in the Community Team delivered enough school supply kits for 450 students and 75 teachers to our Elementary Engage partner Millbrook Magnet Elementary School. Supplies were distributed to students in a drive-through hosted by teachers and staff.
