involvement in determining the organizations we help is important. We seek
their input in identifying local organizations needing support. It builds a
stronger sense of community and increases our giving efforts. We're proud of
all the ways in which our employees get involved and show they care."

Support for a variety of charities
Throughout the year, employees in many of CSL Behring's locations participated
in "Denim Days." By contributing to a designated charity, employees can wear
jeans to work on Fridays. The program benefitted organizations such as Ronald
McDonald House and Philadelphia Veterans Medical Center. 

In Kankakee, employees contributed to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, and in
King of Prussia, employees helped the hungry by donating food items and
packing over 8,500 pounds of food for the local food bank, Philabundance.
Kankakee and CSL Plasma center employees supported the Salvation Army by
donating coats and other clothing items. They helped other local charities
including an orphanage and an assisted living facility.

Deficiency Foundation, Hemophilia Federation of America, Alpha-1 Foundation,
Hereditary Angioedema Association and Hemophilia Foundation of Illinois. The
