Chase Plastics, Clarkston, Michigan, has awarded donations totaling $10,000 to four different charities as part of its annual Chase Plastics Giving Card Campaign. Now in its seventh year, the much-anticipated campaign is awarding $2,500 to four winning charities including:
Twenty-Two Until None: A nonprofit focused on ending suicide in the veteran and military community by providing emergency financial assistance, benefits advocacy and referrals to necessary resources and peer support.
Benjamin’s Hope: A nonprofit leader in creating innovative options for adults affected by autism and developmental disability, ensuring individuals of every ability can live, learn, play and worship in the ways that fit them best.
K9s for Warriors: Determined to end veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors provides highly trained service dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery.
Tails of Hope: A nonprofit that offers service dog training for disabled individuals, special needs children, wounded veterans and first responders. Also a provider of hope, fellowship and a lifetime of support and resources for individuals and families that need it most.
The Chase Giving Campaign started in 2016 to highlight charities that Chase Plastics’ customers and suppliers were most passionate about. Their generosity has not only led to a total of $47,000 being donated to charities across the country through the campaign, but it also has perpetuated the spirit of giving – something in which Chase Plastics strongly believes. Chase Plastics has made it an initiative to encourage volunteerism and increase awareness of charitable organizations by spotlighting various nominated charities on its Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn pages throughout the campaign. As a result, they hope to inspire others to donate time or money to the featured charities or use them as a resource.
This year, the Chase Plastics Giving Card received a record number of nominations and used its social media channels to spotlight several charities. The added exposure of some lesser-known charities was met with appreciation from those who had submitted. “Every year, I’m blown away by the generosity of the plastics industry, our customers, and suppliers,” said Kevin Chase, Chase Plastics’ CEO. “It’s an honor to support these organizations that do so much.”
