Toray Plastics employees donate to tots and caring programs this holiday season
Toray Plastics (America), Inc.(www.toraytpa.com), held its 15th Annual Toys for Tots and Navy Caring and Sharing Breakfast on December 8 and collected more than 300 toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and $2,300 for the Newport Naval Station’s Caring and Sharing program. Eighty- five Toray employees and special guest Rob Ninkovich, a retired New England Patriots outside linebacker, were on hand to celebrate the spirit of the season. The toys will be donated to local families, and the monies will help the Naval Command to provide holiday food baskets to sailors and their families, who might otherwise not be able to have a special holiday dinner.
“I am continually impressed by the thoughtfulness of Toray’s employees,” says Lisa Ahart, vice president of U.S. corporate human resources and environment health and safety. “Their enthusiasm and generosity are unwavering. It was another outstanding year for donations, and we’re very grateful to be able to help bring holiday cheer to others in the Rhode Island community.”
