Toray Plastics (America) raised over $3,500 for the Newport Naval Station’s Caring and Sharing Program and collected 600 toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program as part of its 12th-annual drive for the two causes.

The Newport Naval Station's Caring and Sharing program allows 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. The U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program aims to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas and unite local communities in a common cause. The 600 toys donated by Toray will be distributed to local families.

"I'm extremely proud of Toray employees," says Lisa Ahart, Toray’s vice president of U.S. corporate human resources and environment health and safety. "Their dedication to and enthusiasm for these important local causes will make a difference in the lives of many people this holiday season. Thinking of others, especially those who are less fortunate, is what the holidays are about."
