In the spirit of the holidays, like most companies, SIFCO ASC holds an annual luncheon to celebrate to our employees and our yearly accomplishments. But this year we decided to do something different. We not only wanted to celebrate the season, but we also wanted to give back to those in need.

SIFCO ASC partnered with Odyssey Teams, and participated in the Helping Hands Project. The Helping Hands Project is not only about inspiring employees but it’s also about giving back to those in need. During the event, our team built 10 prosthetic hands needed by hundreds of thousands of amputees around the world.

One leftover landmine is accidentally set off by adults and children every 20 minutes – and a prosthetic limb can cost upwards of $5,000. Many people are then resigned to the fact that they will no longer have use of their hand. But with the help of Odyssey Teams, over 25,000 prosthetic hands have been donated to those in need, worldwide.

During the holidays, especially, this event was a great reminder to reflect on everything we have and how good it feels to be able to give back.
