Holiday CSR Activities

December 31, 2011

Giving Tree 2011The month of November was a busy one for CSR  activities at Toray Composites America (TCA). TCA held a donations drive for the United Way, a gift drive for the Bethel School District Giving Tree, and associates participated in the Tacoma City Marathon Association Santa Run. TCA associates’ generosity towards these organizations was impressive.

Many associates kicked off their holiday shopping early this year with a Giving Tree to benefit children in the Bethel School District. TCA associates and company matching provided holiday gifts for 125 local children and teenagers. Ten employees then wrapped and decorated the gifts expertly with ribbons and bows. The United Way pledge drive was a huge success, with associate pledges totaling more than $24,000. Nearly 100 employees signed up to donate via check or payroll deduction.

Fifteen TCA associates participated in the Tacoma Santa Run on December 17th, with a portion of proceeds benefitting the Humane Society of Tacoma & Pierce County. In addition to associate registration fees, TCA donated an additional sum to the Humane Society for each TCA registered runner or walker. Such overwhelming participation in these activities reflects a general attitude of community spirit amongst TCA associates.
