As part of its 13th annual “Community Days” program, 15,000 volunteers from McKesson will gather at 150 sites around the country to assemble care packages for active duty military service members. For the effort, McKesson is partnering with Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization that regularly sends over 100,000 care packages every year to individual U.S. service members. During its annual Community Days initiative, McKesson employees donate time to a large-scale, company-wide volunteer project.

DSM, the Netherlands-based, multi-national manufacturer, has created DSM Functional Materials, a new business unit, that will focus on environmentally friendly and lighter weight materials. Other areas of interest will include materials for solar applications and functional wood coatings. The new division is based in Illinois, and operates plants in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, as well as a joint venture with JSR in Japan.
