The Chase Giving Campaign started in 2016 as a way to highlight the charities that Chase Plastics’ customers and suppliers were most passionate about. Their generosity has not only led to a total of $37,000 being donated to charities across the country through the campaign, but it has also 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 their 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 it as a resource themselves.
This year, the Chase Plastics Giving Card received a record number of nominations and used their social media channels to spotlight several of the nominees. The added exposure of some lesser-known charities was met with appreciation from those who had submitted. “It’s our favorite time of year,” said Chase Plastics’ President, Kevin Chase. “Our company and industry never lose sight of what really matters. We love coming together to make a difference.”
