Tacoma, Washington, USA: Giving tree, Humane Society, United Way Pledge Donation Fall Event

In a heartwarming display of community engagement, Toray CMA Tacoma office orchestrated various creative initiatives to give back this year. Among them, the "Giving Tree" stands out—a thoughtful endeavor supporting children from 10 schools within the Bethel school district, the very community where the Tacoma CMA office thrives. Armed with wish lists provided by the school district, employees  get a chance to play Santa by selecting a child's wish from the tree and purchase them as presents.  All the gifts will be delivered in early December.

Adding a touch of furry fun, CMA hosted a pet photo contest, transforming the snapshots into a delightful pet calendar available for purchase. The proceeds from the calendar sales go toward supporting both the Humane Society and the United Way, reflecting CMA's commitment to making a positive impact on various fronts.

Further demonstrating their dedication to community welfare, the Tacoma office actively participated in the United Way Pledge Donation Fall event. Pledge forms, distributed among employees, encourage single or continuous donations to the United Way cause. As the month concludes, these heartfelt pledges will be handed over to the United Way, solidifying CMA’s unwavering support for community well-being.
