UTICA, N.Y. – Employees and representatives from Cree, the company planning to build a manufacturing facility in Marcy, donated turkeys and holiday baskets to the Utica Rescue Mission on Wednesday.

The team purchased 200 turkeys and wrapped gifts to give to families in need this Christmas.

“We were looking for an organization to partner with, and that we could do a team building service project for the holidays, and the Rescue Mission was referred to us by the Mohawk Valley Edge organization, and it just seemed like a really good fit to be able to spend a couple hours and also something that we could connect with our headquarters back at Durham. We partner with the local mission there as well so it seemed like a really great fit,” said Sunny Myers, project manager at Cree.

Cree has chosen construction company Exyte, based in Albany, to build the new Marcy facility, and has already created silicon carbide test wafers at SUNY Poly. Cree is expected to bring 600 new jobs to Marcy and provide internships and research opportunities for SUNY students.
