CLARKSTON, Mich., Nov. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
To jump start the upcoming holiday season, Chase Plastics announced the official kick-off of their annual "Giving Card" campaign. The effort – now in its third year – has become a much-anticipated tradition that provides Chase customers and suppliers the opportunity to nominate a charitable organization to receive a well-deserved $1,000.00 donation from Chase Plastics.
Beginning immediately, suppliers and customers (either past, present or future) of Chase Plastics can log on to http://www.chaseplastics.com/giving to submit a brief entry form to recognize their favorite charity and their efforts. Participants can enter now through Monday, December 10th. The selected charity(ies) will be announced on http://www.chaseplastics.com on Monday, December 17th. In addition, Chase will profile the efforts of various charitable organizations with special features on their social media channels throughout the campaign period.
The act of giving has been synonymous with the Chase Plastics name – and with the plastics industry itself. Since the launch of the giving card campaign in 2016, the number of charities nominated has topped 140, so it comes as no surprise that — much like Chase Plastics — their customers and suppliers have equally big hearts and a passion for giving. Their generosity has not only led to thousands of dollars being awarded to charities across the country, it's perpetuated the spirit of giving — something Chase Plastics strongly believes in. During this year's giving card campaign, Chase has made it an initiative to encourage volunteerism and increase awareness through spotlighting various charities on their Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter pages. As a result, Chase hopes that others will be inspired to give donations of time or money to the featured charities. "The power and influence of social media is exponential." Chase Plastics' Human Resource Manager, Gustina Sell went on to explain, "If we can simply highlight a charity and motivate even one of our followers to give, we're delighted to use our resources to help."
To say that benevolence is part of the Chase Plastics' culture may be an understatement. With a storied history of giving, it's seems unlikely that the list of contributions could grow, but somehow it continues to expand with new events and activities added to the corporate calendar each year. To support these endeavors, the Company provides a paid day off for all employees to engage in volunteer efforts for the charity of their choice. "The need never goes away. As a matter of fact, it just keeps growing" said Chase Plastics' President, Kevin Chase. "But with that increase in need, our passion to give increases two-fold. I'm extremely proud to be part of a company and an industry who believe in pulling together for the greater good." One such example of employees quickly rallying together is the $5,500 recently collected for hurricane victims. Chase Plastics matched their employees' contributions, making a total donation of $11,000 to the American Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund.
