Omron Automation and Safety, Schaumburg, Ill., has received the Exceptional Merit Award as a Clearbrook Volunteer of the Year for 2013.
"For the past 16 years, Omron has been supporting Clearbrook in various ways," said Laura Warren, director of marketing at Clearbrook. "Clearbrook is an agency that serves children and adults with developmental disabilities like autism, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome. We're creating opportunities for our clients, and we’re doing that because of companies like Omron that take it very seriously. Omron exemplifies the meaning of giving back to society."
Over the years Omron volunteers have helped Clearbrook with time and materials on numerous projects including painting, assistance with the organization's resale shop, landscaping, and other facility renovations. Additionally, Omron provides financial contributions to the organization, most recently providing resources for renovations to its 92-bed Commons facility located in Rolling Meadows, Ill.
