Toray Composites America (TCA) associates kicked off the company picnic on July 31st with donations to the Tacoma Communities in Schools “Stuff the Bus” program. The program collects school supplies throughout the Tacoma/Pierce area and provides the supplies to area children in need.
TCA associates brought donations to the company picnic on July 31st and continued to donate at work until August 18th, when the supplies were collected in a school bus by Communities in Schools volunteers. Donations filled three large boxes and included supplies such as complete backpacks, spiral notebooks, lined notebook paper, crayons, pens, pencils, and glue sticks. School supply drives are an annual event at TCA, but once again the generosity of TCA associates exceeded expectations.
Many associates donated multiple items, and total donations filled boxes the equivalent of six cartons of paper. The program was extended through the pickup date at the request of associates who were unable to donate at the company picnic.
