Community Support

Because an organization has a social obligation to share its success with those less fortunate, Irwin & Leighton and its employees enthusiastically offer financial and personal support to a wide range of community social programs and activities. This is principally done in two ways:

Corporate Volunteerism

Irwin & Leighton’s Committee for Corporate Volunteerism consists of employees from all parts of the Company. The Committee identifies worthwhile opportunities for community support and organizes employees to contribute their time and/or resources to these programs.

In the last five years, Irwin & Leighton and its employees have:

  • raised funds for The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Foundation;
  • collected food and toys for Pottstown's Cluster Outreach Center;
  • hosted several luncheons for patients at Coatesville’s Veterans Hospital.
  • built a playground for Laurel House the only emergency domestic violence shelter in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania;
  • participated in and supported Pottstown’s Tri-County Area Soap Box Derby Challenge Race which provides a taste of soap box derby racing for special needs children;
  • collected “gently used” books to support the Montgomery County Literacy Group;
