Toray Plastics (America), Inc., held its 16th annual Toys for Tots and Navy Caring and Sharing Breakfast on Dec. 7, collecting more than 200 toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and $2,500 for the Naval Station Newport’s Caring and Sharing program.
Eighty Toray employees attended the fundraiser and celebrated the spirit of the season. Toray vendors, customers and community partners also donated toys and items for the breakfast. The toys will be given 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.
“We are very grateful to Toray employees,” says Lisa Ahart, vice president of U.S. corporate human resources and environment health and safety. “They never hesitate to give generously to this special holiday event. Their thoughtfulness will make it possible for others in the Rhode Island community to enjoy some holiday cheer.”
Ahart added that the company is also appreciative of the vendors, customers and community partners whose donations helped make the event successful.
