Thanks to Weyerhaeuser employees' volunteer work and other company efforts, Weyerhaeuser was named one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation.

Yesterday morning, Points of Light, the National Conference on Citizenship and Bloomberg announced The Civic 50 for 2013, and Weyerhaeuser is ranked with companies such as 3M, Adobe Systems, Alcoa, Ameriprise Financial, Bank of America, FedEx, General Electric, Microsoft and Southwest Airlines.

The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system focused solely on corporate involvement in communities. Points of Light and the National Conference on Citizenship are America’s leading experts on civic engagement, and Bloomberg News is a respected source of business and financial information. Together, their survey identifies and recognizes companies that invest talent, time and resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business.

“This recognition sets the standard for corporate civic engagement nationwide, which has been a key value for Weyerhaeuser since our beginning,” says Karen Veitenhans, manager of corporate contributions at Weyerhaeuser. “A truly great company plays an important role in promoting civic engagement by contributing dollars and employees’ talents and passions to help solve community problems, and we’re pleased Weyerhaeuser is recognized among other companies that excel at doing the same.”
