Norco Manufacturing Complex made a $5,000 donation to the United Way of St. Charles Annual Toy & Food Drive, supplying food and hundreds of toys to families in need this holiday season.

"As our donations started to come in we noticed a shortage in gifts for young children, especially boys," John Dias, UWSC executive director, said. "Norco Manufacturing Complex’s generous donation allowed us to supply food and toys to many at-risk families in St. Charles Parish that would have otherwise gone without."

In addition to this grant, Norco Manufacturing Complex and its employees contribute over $300,000 annually to United Way of St. Charles. The site is committed to improving the overall quality of life in the River Parishes, including the St. Charles Parish community.
