Bristol Myers Squibb has a long history of investing in our local communities and, as one of the largest employers in Mercer County, New Jersey, our company and employees are closely involved with a wide range of nonprofit organizations working to improve the quality of life in the City of Trenton, the county seat and state capital.
In 2012, Bristol Myers Squibb donated nearly $400,000 to two dozen nonprofit groups that help Trenton families improve their neighborhoods, promote health and wellness, and survive in a challenging economy. Our employees are making a difference, too, by serving as volunteers in local classrooms and soup kitchens, by painting, repairing and landscaping nonprofits’ facilities, and doing other volunteer tasks as part of our Helping Hands program.
Consistent with its focused approach to giving, Bristol Myers Squibb supports Trenton-area nonprofits in three strategic areas: promoting community health and wellness, improving the quality of education and youth achievement; and helping people in need.
