During the past quarter, our Employee Owners have been busy giving back to the community with their me, resources and financially.
Our Palm Desert employees are going Casual for a Cause and will be donating the proceeds to their local YMCA. The Ronald McDonald House at Loma Linda is undergoing construction, and this has prevented them from preparing dinner. But, they do have a date scheduled for October once the construction is finished. They have also started preparing for their annual USO gala which will be held in November.
The NorCal office has also been busy supporting their community. A team of employees cleaned the beach for the Monterey Bay Aquarium in April. During the month of June, they are collecting donations for their Ronald McDonald House, and their next event will be hos ng a social event in a local nursing home.
SoCal is currently going Casual for a Cause and are supporting the Challenged Athletes Foundation. The money raised will help a team of TMT employees compete in the CAF triathlon in October. The team will swim 1 mile in the ocean, bike 44 miles and then run 10 miles, all to raise funds for athletes with disabilities.
Nevada employees collected 340 items to donate to their local food pantry, Three Squares. These items weighed a whopping 171 pounds and equates to 143 meals for those who are hur ng for money and cannot provide meals for their families. They also went Casual for a Cause in May, raising $266 for Project 999, an organization that supports injured law enforcement officers and the families of fallen law enforcement officers.
The Employee Owners in Oregon heard about Project 999 while at the last Leadership meeting, and decided their June Casual for a Cause would also benefit this amazing organizations.
While it was not a divisional effort, a number of Arizona employees also made donations to support Project 999.
The Employee Owners in the Central Coast went Casual for a Cause for Project 999 raising an impressive $1,300!! The leadership in this office was touched by the fundraising efforts of the daughter of one of the TMT employees. 15-year-old Dani Bush, whose father was a police officer and passed away from cancer in 2012, participated in a portion of the bike ride that began in Sacramento, CA and ended in Westminster, CA – a distance of over 600 miles. Dani rode portions of the route from San Luis Obispo to the finish line, logging over 100 miles in two days.
