Boehringer Ingelheim Cares Foundation donates $50,000 to Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation

The nonprofit Boehringer Ingelheim Cares Foundation (BI Cares) recently gave $50,000 to the Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation to provide underserved students the technology they need to stay connected while learning virtually, and to provide them nourishment essential for academic success through its school-based food pantry program. The contribution came from the COVID-19 Relief Fund that BI Cares established in 2020 in response to the tremendous unmet need caused by the pandemic.

BI Cares is the independent, philanthropic arm of Boehringer Ingelheim USA Corporation. Boehringer Ingelheim employs about 600 people in Duluth, at the U.S. headquarters of Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, which makes medicine for pets, horses and livestock.
