Caravan Ingredients Awarded Bronze Call to Action

September 02, 2010

Caravan Ingredients has been named a 2010 recipient of the "Bronze Award Call to Action" for raising over $5,000 through participation in the March of Dimes' premier fundraiser, March for Babies.

Presented to Caravan Ingredients' New Jersey fundraising team by the March of Dimes New Jersey Chapter, the Bronze Award Call to Action recognizes outstanding fundraising efforts of corporate, school, family and club March for Babies teams.

"Receiving this award from the March of Dimes is a great honor," said Bret Woodson, Vice President Human Resources at Caravan Ingredients. "It recognizes the remarkable employees we have in our New Jersey locations and illustrates how the people of Caravan Ingredients truly embrace our company values of Partnership, Performance, and Passion."

In total, Caravan Ingredients' employee's companywide were able to raise over $11,000 to benefit the March of Dimes mission.

March for Babies is the March of Dimes' leading fundraising event that benefits all babies. Since its inception in 1970, March for Babies, formerly known as WalkAmerica, has raised more than $2 billion nationwide for mothers and babies.

2010 marks the third year Caravan Ingredients has participated in this employee led effort to support the March of Dimes. The March of Dimes is particularly important to Caravan Ingredients because together they share one large commonality: folic acid. A large part of the March of Dimes' mission is to promote the health benefits of including folic acid in a healthy diet. Folic acid plays a major role in reducing the life-long effects of neural tube defects such as spina-bifida in premature babies. Caravan Ingredients is the world's number one supplier of folic acid to the grain industry.
