HanesBrands and its employees raised more than $345,000 in its annual headquarters campaign to support the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.

HanesBrands and its headquarters employees, the largest corporate giver to the Arts Council, have donated more than $6 million to the organization to support the arts since initiating their support nearly 20 years ago.

The Arts Council uses the donations to fund more than 30 organizations that create more than 800,000 arts experiences in Forsyth County.

“Nonprofit fundraising is always challenging, but it is critical to our community’s quality of life and vibrancy,” said Cheryl Lindsay, HanesBrands’ director, global diversity and inclusion, and the Arts Council’s 2018 county campaign co-chair. “Hanes is committed to being a strong ongoing supporter of the arts and other community improvement agencies. Our company and its dedicated employees have long recognized the positive impact the arts have on our community, and we’d like to keep the momentum going.”

The annual campaign features many opportunities for Hanes employees to interact with and collaborate with artists and musicians from the community.

“During the campaign, we celebrate with fun activities,” Lindsay said. “But the ultimate goal is to raise as much financial support for the Arts Council as possible.”
