A Little Effort Goes a Long Way Customers devote time to a survey, Vincotech donates to a worthy cause

Vincotech, long a backer of the children’s charity Plan International, pledged to donate to one of the organization’s initiatives for each response to the company’s 2019 customer satisfaction survey. Given a choice of projects to support, respondents opted for Clean Water for Ghana.

Perhaps you recall us making this pledge? It’s the reason why we’re again supporting this project in 2021.
