Alene Candles Offers New Americans Warm Welcome

Central Ohio is home to one of the nation’s fastest-growing immigrant communities that make significant contributions throughout the region. That’s why Alene Candles, a company in the New Albany International Business Park’s Personal Care and Beauty Campus, has launched the New Americans program to build connections by supplying welcome kits to the area nonprofits that serve the refugee and immigrant population. The kits contain some essentials, including personal hygiene products, as well as small gifts like candles to make the transition to the community easier. The company sees it as a way of not only welcoming new Americans to the area, but also letting them know that it values their contributions to the growing workforce in central Ohio. VIEW VIDEO
