Wabash National Corp. said it contributed nearly $700,000 to various national and local community organizations in 2013 with the generous support of company associates and suppliers across the United States.

Headquartered in Lafayette, Ind., Wabash is a diversified industrial manufacturer and among North America’s leading producers of semi trailers and liquid transportation systems.

Dick Giromini, Wabash National’s president and CEO, said some of the organizations that received charitable contributions last year included United Way, the Wounded Warrior Project, Wabash Center, Special Olympics, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Lafayette Armory and U.S. Army Reserve Center.

Total contributions were a collective effort of associates’ donations and pledges, corporate donations and other fundraising initiatives. This includes the $159,000 raised through the generous contributions of more than 100 Wabash National suppliers during the company’s 2013 charity golf outing.

Wabash National actively supports numerous nonprofit organizations in the communities in which it operates through monetary donations and in-kind volunteer hours. The company places special emphasis on assisting organizations focused on enhancing the lives of children, people with disabilities, and military personnel and their families.
