MSC Industrial Direct Co., Inc., one of the nation’s leading distributors of metalworking and industrial supplies, contributed $20,000 in support of United Way’s YouthBuild Long Island initiative. MSC associates have also welcomed YouthBuild students to their corporate headquarters in Melville, helping the students to learn about the history of the company, customer relations, distributing, marketing, advertising, human resources and more.
“MSC Industrial Supply Co. is proud to support Youth Build Long Island,” said Alessandra Cavalluzzi, Senior Manager of Community Relations, MSC. “This wonderful program has helped so many young men and women transform their lives. It is exciting to for us witness the growth of the students as they go through the program. We are always thrilled to hear the stories of the personal and professional successes that they are able to achieve because of Youth Build.”
YouthBuild is a youth and community-development program that simultaneously addresses core issues facing low-income communities: housing, education, employment, crime prevention, and leadership development. At YouthBuild, low-income young people, ages 18 to 24, work towards their GEDs while learning job skills by building affordable Green housing for low- to moderate-income people, and participating in leadership development activities in their communities.
