Food Bank, Toys for Tots and more!

December 31, 2013

As 2013 comes to a close, we would like to thank all of our associates and those who participated in our charitable contributions during this time of year! Damuth Trane is committed to maintaining a healthy workplace that fosters growth potential; both personally and professionally. Part of the personal growth for employees involves giving back to the community – both time and money. Throughout the year, we have what we like to call our “Blue Jeans for Charity Fridays”; an employee favorite. How it works is employees can wear jeans to work on Friday’s for $5. The money collected from the jean wearing employees is donated to a local charity! During November we collected non-perishable food items for the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia, and the donations collected were amazing! During the month of December we had two charity donations running at the same time. We collected coats to donate to WAVY TV 10’s Coats for Families, and also collected toys to be donated to the Marine Corp's TOYS FOR TOTS program. So, again thank you to all who participated. See the quotes below as to what and how much we collected! “We delivered our donations to the Food Bank this past weekend, and we are so excited to have raised $250 and to have collected 110 pounds of food for our November Food Bank Drive! A huge thank you to our associates who donated to such a great cause!” “Since the beginning of December, we have been collecting coats to donate to WAVY TV 10's Coats for Families. We are excited to be donating 66 coats this year!! We are so thankful for everyone's generosity during this Holiday Season!” “Thanks to our Associate's wonderful generosity, we collected 105 toys to be donated to the Marine Corp's TOYS FOR TOTS program. Our very own 'elves' delivered them to our local drop off location, Chesapeake Fire Station #9 on Wednesday.” There is much to be thankful for this New Year, Happy New Year to all from Damuth Trane!
