2022 Chase Plastics Giving Card Campaign winners announced

Posted by

Chase Plastics has awarded donations totaling $10,000 to four different charities as part of their annual Chase Plastics Giving Card Campaign. Now in its seventh year, the much-anticipated campaign is awarding $2,500 to four winning charities. This year’s winners were all nominated by customers of Chase Plastics. They include:

Twenty-Two Until None: This nonprofit is 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: Benjamin’s Hope is a non-profit 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: Tails of Hope provides service dog training for disabled individuals, special needs children, wounded veterans, and first responders. They also provide 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 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 them as a resource themselves.

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 Chase Plastics’ President, Kevin Chase. “It’s an honor to support these organizations that do so much.”

Past winners include: Rising Stars Academy (Center Line, MI), Penrickton Center for Blind Children (Taylor, MI), Battin Farms Equine & Soldier Sanctuary (Olivet, MI), See Me Home – Senior Dog Sanctuary (Sturgis, MI), Party for a Purpose (Monticello, MN), LifeCenter Northwest (Bellevue, WA), Children’s Oncology Group Foundation (Philadelphia, PA), Home of the Innocents (Louisville, KY), Malachi House Hospice (Cleveland, OH), Gleaners Community Food Bank (Detroit, MI), Operation Underground Railroad (Anaheim, CA), Thumb Area Helping Hands (Bad Axe, MI), Folds of Honor (Owasso, OK), Hero Dogs, Inc. (Brookeville, MD), Because There Is Hope (Spokane, WA), Toms River Field of Dreams (Township of Toms River, NJ), Agape Safe Haven (Longmont, CO), Paws With a Cause (Wayland, MI) and Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank (Akron, OH).
