At Grand River Rubber, we are proud to be the second-largest giving employer in Ashtabula County. We strive to support our community because we understand when we support community members in need, we all succeed. In July of 2019, Grand River Rubber & Plastics was recognized by United Way of Ashtabula County with the Most Consistent Giving by Employees Award.

This is a testament to those who work here and our leaders who believe in giving back to the community. The United Way Day is an event that we have participated in for 35 years. Our December 2018 employee campaign raised more than $33,000 for the United Way of Ashtabula County that went toward healthy living, impact education, and financial stability programs in Ashtabula County. This year, during Grand River’s December 2019 United Way Day of Action Campaign, employees pledged $33,764!
