Metform, the hot forging division of MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions, located in Savanna, Illinois, has an employee-driven team named The Metform CARS (Community Assistance Relief and Support) Team. The Team looks for ways to help local communities with their need for food, coats, school supplies, etc. or to help worthwhile organizations and causes.

The CARS Team sponsored one of their employee team members who was participating in the annual “Warrior Ride,” a Tri-State area group that rides motorcycles and collects donations from individuals and area businesses for their charities. All charities are related to veterans who need assistance. The goal of the annual “Warrior Ride” for 2017 was to raise enough money to help 2 local veterans each receive a service dog.

Metform asked employees to participate by donating items, buying 50/50 tickets, raffle tickets, and contributing their time and talents. Metform’s goal was to raise enough money to help the local area veterans to each receive a service dog. They met that goal with the help of many riders, individuals and businesses that contributed to the event.

Metform employees are proud to have been able to contribute to this cause and to have a positive impact on the community. Veterans are important to MacLean-Fogg!  November 11, Veterans Day, is a day to honor those who have served our country, those who are serving our country now, and to all those who have made sacrifices so we can be free!
