Levine Children’s designated among 40 beneficiaries of a million-dollar gift made on Giving Tuesday 

Charlotte, N.C., Nov. 29, 2022 – Earlier today, National Gypsum announced $1 million in charitable support to build better futures through education, healthcare, and community initiatives in locations across North America where National Gypsum Company affiliates have operations. Atrium Health Levine Children’s has been named the beneficiary of a $25,000 gift that will support pediatric patient health initiatives within the Greater Charlotte region.  

The health system is among 40 nonprofit organizations and schools to be selected for funding across 19 states and two Canadian provinces. National Gypsum’s generous support for these communities was announced today in conjunction with the international “Giving Tuesday” celebration of giving. 

“From the products we make to supporting the communities we call home, National Gypsum is dedicated to building better futures,” said Thomas C. Nelson, chairman, president and CEO of National Gypsum Company. “We are grateful to all of these organizations for the difference they make in their communities every day.” 

A check presentation, attended by National Gypsum employees Richie Sorce, Erika Mauldin, Rochelle Metzger, Kay Leopard, and Beth Straeten, took place at Atrium Health Foundation this afternoon. 

“Levine Children’s Hospital was built by the community, for the community, and thanks to generous support from philanthropic partners like National Gypsum, we continue to advance world-class care for children and their families,” said Armando Chardiet, president of Atrium Health Foundation. 

The National Gypsum family of companies supports communities year-round with structured leadership training programs, volunteerism and associate and corporate giving, as well as through a commitment to environmental stewardship.
