It has been a bit quieter here at SAFC Live in the month of December as everyone prepares for time off during the holiday season. We can hardly believe that 2013 is almost over and wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for your support in 2013.

The teams at Sigma-Aldrich, SAFC and BioReliance strive to show our thanks to the communities we operate in through the year. In 2013, the team at BioReliance implemented various projects for charity and provided a great example of how giving back is not only rewarding, but also fun.

Employees volunteered time to various programs, participated in charity runs and walks, coordinated lab tours for local students and provided monetary support to local charities like the Joshua Frase Foundation (supporting myotubular myopathy treatment research). As the holidays approached, the team turned their attention to making the holidays brighter for local families with over 500 toys donated to the local chapter of Toys for Tots, and 2,186 pounds of food donations to Manna Food Center (www.mannafood.org) as part of the Sigma Aldrich global food drive. The success of the toy drive is driven by departmental toy exchanges where Secret Santas buy toys for co-workers instead of the traditional coffee mug.

We are sincerely appreciative of the communities we work in, our exceptional employees and valued partners – none of this is possible without you – and so we leave 2013 with our deepest thanks.

Best wishes for the happiest (and healthiest) of holidays and a prosperous new year. We look forward to seeing you on SAFC Live in 2014!
