ASI helps raise nearly $120,000 to help community non-profits and the people of Ukraine
“ASI is a small, family-owned company made up of people with very big hearts, and it’s wonderful that so many of our employees work so hard to help others,” said ASI Chairman Norman Cohn
TREVOSE, PA – December 20, 2022
The Advertising Specialty Institute® (ASI) today thanked its employees for generous donations they made all year long, helping provide food, hot meals and holiday gifts to help people in their community and beyond.
Along with employees, ASI also thanked generous members of the promotional products industry who contributed $85,000 to an ASI fund drive to provide humanitarian aid to Ukraine, including matching funds given by the Norman Cohn family and Timothy M. Andrews, ASI president and chief executive officer.
“As a boy growing up in Indiana, I remember my holiday gifts were often carried into our home by volunteer firemen, who were delivering presents wrapped by neighbors helping neighbors,” said Andrews. “Here at ASI, we’ve continued to make ‘we care’ an integral part of our corporate values, with ASI employees thinking of others by generously donating to their neighbors in need.”
ASI’s Charity Initiative group, formed by employees in 2021, managed numerous fundraisers this year, along with community volunteer opportunities.
“From a very early age, my parents of blessed memory, Bess and Maurice Cohn, taught us the importance of giving back,” said ASI Chairman Norman Cohn. “As they often said, ‘When God smiles on your parade, it’s important you smile on other people’s parades.’ ASI is a small, family-owned company made up of people with very big hearts, and it’s wonderful that so many of our employees work so hard to help others.”
In addition to volunteering at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore Langhorne and Horsham Center for Jewish Life, below are the chief organizations ASI employees, Andrews and members of the Cohn family contributed to throughout 2022 in an effort to promote the idea of goodwill toward all:
