CLARKSTON, Mich., Dec. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In previous years, the company donated $1,000 to three charities, but due to the overwhelming response and the compelling stories of giving in a difficult year, three deserving charities were selected to receive donations of $2,500 each.
This year's winning charities were all nominated by customers of Chase Plastics. They include:
Agape Safe Haven: A year-round overnight homeless shelter that rotates among church sites in Longmont, Colorado, providing beds for up to a full year for guests that would be vulnerable in a traditional emergency shelter: women, the elderly and disabled adults. http://www.agapelongmont.org
Paws With A Cause®: Provides custom-trained assistance dogs to enhance the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities at no cost to the family. PAWS® increases awareness of the rights and roles of Assistance Dog Teams through education and advocacy. Wayland, MI http://www.pawswithacause.org
Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank: Provides food and other essential items to member hunger-relief programs in eight Northeast Ohio counties. These member programs operate nearly 500 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs – normally serving 200,000 meals annually. However, this year they have more than doubled this number of meals. http://www.growing4good.org/ - donate
The Chase Giving Campaign originally began in 2016 as a way to highlight the charities that Chase Plastics' customers and suppliers were most passionate about. What started as an idea to donate $1,000 to one charity in lieu of spending that money on holiday cards that get thrown away, quickly grew to $1,000 donations to three charities due to the overwhelming response. This year, Chase Plastics used the Giving Card as their holiday card and collected several nominations through their website in November and December from customers, suppliers and the general public. The result was donations of $7,500 to three nominated charities. Also, in an attempt to raise awareness, donations and volunteerism efforts for "those who give all year," Chase Plastics highlighted a different charity on their social media channels every day of the campaign. The added exposure of some lesser known charities was met with applause and appreciation from those who had submitted their favorite charity. The Chase Giving Card Campaign continues to be well received within the plastics industry, appropriately capping off a year filled with efforts in the fight against COVID19. Chase Plastics' President Kevin Chase commented, "The outpouring of generosity and the incredible acts of kindness never ceases to amaze us. I am beyond grateful to be part of an industry that continues to create an impact year after year, and I look forward to continuing our work together to make a difference in 2021."
