The 5% Project was launched in 2017 based on the company’s decision to make a commitment to give back to its community and the world we live in.
We take care of ourselves, our family, and our friends on a daily basis, so we thought – why not give back to the rest of the world? We feel an obligation to not only help ones we know, but also to help the individuals we breathe our air with and the world we live in on a continual basis.
With that Cylinder is determined to make a mark within our communities and the world by donating and volunteering our time and resources to help others.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE GREAT ORGANIZATIONS WE HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF HELPING SINCE OUR INCEPTION IN 2017:
