Toray Plastics (America) Cares Campaign Helped Brighten the Holiday Season

North Kingstown, RI — For the second year in a row, Toray Plastics (America), Inc.’s  employees had to forgo their annual holiday fundraising breakfast owing to COVID-19 restrictions, but that didn’t dampen their spirit or diminish their desire to give generously and help others. The company’s Cares Campaign mobilized the workforce and enabled Toray to fulfill its holiday season commitment to the Rhode Island community for the 19th consecutive year. Toray vendors also pitched in to help make the campaign a success. The U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society were the beneficiaries. The toys were distributed to local families. The monies will help the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society provide financial, educational, and other assistance to members of the Naval and Marine Services of the United States, eligible family members, and survivors when they are in need.

“We learned during the very challenging 2020 holiday season that Toray employees would not be daunted by COVID-19, and 2021 was no different,” says Lisa A. Ahart, Vice President of U.S. Corporate Human Resources and Environment Health and Safety. “We are very grateful to them and our vendors for their enthusiastic support.”
