Banana Bread Bake-off
Zoltek HQ hosted its first ever Banana Bread Bake-Off to coincide with National Banana Bread Day and raise money for Meals on Wheels America.

Holiday Drive at St. Peters Location
Employees at our St. Peters location collected non-perishable food items, gifts and monetary donations for local non-profits during the month of December.
Teams collected food for the St. Louis Area Foodbank, as well as, an array of gifts for Crisis Nursery!
Saint Nicholas Day
In December, Zoltek’s Nyergesújfalu location gave back to local school children with their celebrations of Saint Nicholas Day. In Hungary, St. Nicholas is called “Mikulás” and he is known to gives presents to those children who behaved well during the year. Mikulás visited the Kernstock Károly elementary school and the kindergarten of Nyergesújfalu. Mikulás brought red Zoltek bags that were packed with sweets and fruits.

Zoltek's Summer Swim Camp
Each summer, Zoltek’s Nyergesújfalu location hosts a swim camp. Young campers are invited to attend the camp free of charge to learn to swim safely. This past August, 21 children, as young as age 4 attended the camp. Children participated in structured swim lessons, and played guided games to further enhance their skills.
Ronald McDonald House
In August, Zoltek employees and their families cooked dinner for families at the Ronald McDonald House as a part of the Meals from the Heart program. This program invites volunteers to come into the Ronald McDonald House facility and cook meals for the families staying in the facility while their children receive care from the neighboring hospital.
