The Caribbean island of Grenada continues to face tough economic times with a significant number of its residents living in poverty, so Edgetech I.

G. offered its assistance. A relative of an Edgetech employee living in the area recognized the need to provide books and supplies to the impoverished youth of the country in hopes of giving them a chance at a better life. Eager to assist with the cause, employees from Edgetech and sister company LMI Custom Mixing held a drive that resulted in 5,000 books and enough additional supplies for 80 children, including pencils, erasers, scissors, glue and crayons.


“The response from employees was overwhelming,” says Mike Hovan, president, Edgetech I.G. “Thanks to their help and help from our friends and suppliers, 161 boxes of books and supplies were delivered to Grenada. It has been a wonderful effort from all involved and will make a difference in the lives of these children.”

Edgetech also thanks its logistics partner, Conway, for shipping the 6,000 pounds worth of books and supplies at a deeply discounted rate.
