Drop the Anchor on Breast Cancer

Posted by CR on Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Anchor Hocking always looks forward to this time of year! It's such a great opportunity to give to a wonderful cause as a business family.

We thought we'd give you an inside peek at our race shirts for the 2011 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure (Columbus, Ohio).

The race is Saturday May 14th, and we'll have a team of 129 there.

A big thank you to everyone who helped pull this year's Team Anchor Hocking Company together! An extra round of applause to Moe, our team captain, co-worker, friend and survivor for all of her hard work!

Team Anchor Hocking has 6 pink shirts to hand out this year, which denotes survivors of breast cancer.

Stay tuned for pictures of the race day! We hope that if you're in Columbus on May 14th you can make it out to race, or to help cheer on the participants!

And the next time you get a chance, raise a glass in hope! Together we will find a cure!

Need some Hope? We've got Hope items in our online store!

Let us know what you think of our shirts via Facebook or Twitter!

Giving to United Way

Posted by CR on Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Every year Anchor Hocking asks it's employees to give back in many ways. One of our largest efforts is the United Way Campaign (Fairfield County, Ohio). In 2010 our employees helped raise 27% more money for the United Way  than in 2009!

Through the generous effort of our employees we are able to give a gift that helps out our neighbors and that is something we are very proud of.

Neighboring businesses in Fairfield County also stepped up their giving. What a great year for giving in our area! Let's keep up the good work!

Anchor Hocking’s main headquarters are located just outside of Columbus, OH. A member of the sales and marketing team put together a group, over 50 members strong, for the event. Anchor has also supported the breast cancer cause with inspiring products, including the Hope Mug and Hope Double Wall with a pink lid. In addition, the bakeware line supports the cause with a pink lidded Batter Bowl and ribbon shaped cookie cutter, pink 16oz Measuring Cup and pink 5oz Measuring Glass all available through seasonal retail promotions in the fall.
