At the Kansas City Plant, we are committed to being responsible stewards of the communities in which we live and work.
Honeywell Hometown Solutions
As the KCP's managing contractor, Honeywell is committed to making things better for everyone in the places where we have facilities and where our employees work, live, and raise their families. With Honeywell Hometown Solutions
, we focus our community outreach efforts on three very important societal needs that align with Honeywell’s heritage, products, and people. By concentrating on these four priorities and working with well-regarded national partners, we can make a greater impact.
Our focus Areas are:
Science and Math Education:
School or community-based programs that encourage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
Family Safety and Security:
Safety programs for children and families in the community most specifically those that deal with abduction and violence prevention, home safety and fire safety.
Housing and Shelter:
Rebuilding Together for safe, secure, comfortable housing is a basic human need.
Assistance to victims of natural disasters.
In an effort to give back to our hometowns, Kansas City Plant employees give over 16,000 hours of service to educational and community outreach annually. In addition, our Employee Giving Campaign raises nearly $470,000 in Kansas City while Kirtland Operations raises$100,000 annually.
In addition to these, many of our employees volunteer in the community through the Employees Club, which was created in part to promote, encourage, and recognize employee participation in community outreach. More than half of our managers and directors also hold leadership positions in civic and charitable organizations. Other programs we support include:
- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City
- Blue River Rescue
- Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired (Trolley Run)
- Community Blood Center (Blood Drives)
- FIRST Robotics
- SAFEHOME (Flag Football Tournament)
- Salvation Army (Angel Tree Program)
