As a result of the devastation and loss of life, Toray Industries of Japan pledged to support reconstruction efforts, including the donation of materials for temporary shelter, water filtration, etc, as well as financial contributions to the Japanese Red Cross.

In response to the outpouring of employee concern, Toray Composites America arranged a fundraiser for the American Red Cross and pledged to match associate contributions. For the month of April, associates made donations to the American Red Cross at work. TCA associates donated $8,000 with company matching.TCA associates’ generosity will provide much-needed assistance to those still recovering from the terrible effects of the earthquake and tsunami.
