Lakeland, FL – Treatt, an ingredients manufacturer and solutions provider to the global flavor, fragrance, and consumer goods markets recently donated $890 to Peace River Center, a nonprofit behavioral health organization serving Polk, Hardee, and Highlands Counties. To highlight the important role physical activity has on enhancing well-being, Treatt challenged its USA and UK-based employees to get active and cover 100 miles in one month. Whether walking, running, or another physical activity, Treatt agreed to donate $5 for every 10 miles the employee accomplished. Treatt USA’s Lakeland office had 21 employees who covered 1,782 miles, which resulted in an $890 donation to Peace River Center.

“At Treatt we know how important physical and mental health care, which is why we are so proud of the employees who participated and the funds they helped raise. We know Peace River Center will use these funds to continue making strides in our community to boost mental well-being,” said Melanie Cooksey-Stott, VP of Global Procurement.

“We are so grateful for community partners like Treatt,” said Ileana Kniss, Director of Community Relations and Development at Peace River Center. “Kudos to their organization and employees for embracing the importance of wellness and mental health, while also giving back.”
