Cummins recognizes that with its role as a corporate leader comes a responsibility to help improve the communities in which its employees work and live. It is a responsibility that Cummins, particularly here in Jamestown, brings to life through its actions and the volunteer activities of its employees.
Central to the livelihood of those living and working in and around Jamestown, New York is the continued success of WCA Hospital. For this reason, the Cummins' Jamestown Engine Plant is supporting Sharing the Gift of Health: The Capital Campaign for Our Emergency Department with a $50,000 campaign gift.
"We are pleased to provide support for this critical initiative in our community," says David Porter, Plant Manager for the Cummins' Jamestown Engine Plant. "It is extremely important that members of our community have accesses to high quality healthcare when they most need it."
