EXTON, PA — In an act of community outreach, West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (NYSE: WST) invited special guests from the Philadelphia Eagles to its Exton headquarters on December 5, National Volunteer Day. The Eagles’ mascot SWOOP, cheerleaders, and alumni Todd Herremans and Will Thomas joined West’s team members in wrapping gifts, stuffing stockings with donated essential self-care products, and providing coats for children and families in the Greater Philadelphia area.
The charitable efforts benefited several local organizations, including Community Volunteers In Medicine, Friends Association for the Care and Protection of Children, Pennsylvania Home of the Sparrow, and Operation Warm.
This event is part of a broader sustainability partnership between West and the Philadelphia Eagles that began in April this year. Both organizations have a long-standing commitment to sustainability and community development programs, and this partnership further underscores their shared values.
One of the key initiatives under this partnership is West’s Field Goal Forest. For each successful field goal during the season, the Eagles and West will plant 20 trees. They will also collaborate on an annual tree-planting event at the end of the season. As of now, the initiative has committed to planting 420 trees, demonstrating a tangible environmental impact.
West Pharmaceutical Services’ collaboration with the Philadelphia Eagles not only highlights its commitment to corporate social responsibility but also positions it as a company that values community engagement and sustainability. Similarly, the Eagles’ participation in these efforts reinforces their role as more than just a sports team, but a community partner dedicated to making a difference off the field as well.
