Toray Composites America (TCA) has had a longstanding relationship with nearby Bethel School District. For several years, this is where the company has focused its community involvement and education efforts, and the 2013 TCA picnic was another opportunity to serve BSD.
On August 3, 2013, TCA employees and their families gathered for the annual company picnic, held on-site at TCA’s facility. In addition to food, music, and games, guests were invited to bring school supplies to help “Stuff the Bus,” and pay $1 per ball to dunk their managers in a dunk tank. A Bethel School District bus on site collected many bags of school supplies for BSD, and the popular dunk tank generated money for BSD. After the dunk tank proceeds were matched by TCA, a check was presented to Jay Brower of Bethel School District.
Brower expressed his appreciation of the donation on behalf of BSD, and explained that TCA is viewed as an icon in our part of the community. Bethel School District often looks towards TCA as a shining example of good business practices and community involvement.
TCA is happy to have such a strong relationship with Bethel School District, and looks forward to additional opportunities in the future to support the district and its students.
