Our global team members have been raising funds and donating goods in order to bring holiday cheer to people in their local communities and overseas. In Perry, Ohio our “Give Something Back” committee worked to create basket raffles in October and December to raise funds for several charities. The first raffle raised $2,454 for the “Sunshine Fund”, which assists team members in need. The second raffle raised $1,800 for the local food bank, humane society and adopt-a-child program. The Perry team also worked together to collect many items for donation to the USO. The donations will be sent overseas to troops and they will be receiving food, office supplies, games and a variety of amenities.
Employees from our UK facilities in Rogerstone and Fairford have been hard at work raising funds for their local charity, Macmillan Cancer Support. The first event involved a bike ride from Fairford to Rogerstone that stretched over 85 miles and included 10 employees. Following the bike ride, TT Electronics held a cake sale at our Rogerstone facility on October 5th. Together, the groups raised nearly £2,000 for their efforts.
For four years running, the TT Electronics-IMS team in Perry Ohio, has held a ”Stuff the Bus" drive to raise money and school supplies for the children in our local community. TT Electronics donated 120 book bags and team members worked over the course of four hours to fill them with supplies. The donations go to 1500 needy families in Lake County.
This summer, our "Give Something Back" committee in Perry, Ohio launched a campaign to help send underprivileged kids to a local camp. The committee was able to raise funds through various events including two bake sales, an auction, a vacation day raffle and a 50/50 raffle. The total amount raised by the group was $1,260 - enough money to send three children to summer camp for a week. To all the TT Electronics team members who contributed to the success of this campaign, thank you for a job well done!
On June 15th 2016 TT Electronics Integrated Manufacturing Services hosted six students from Northleach and North Cerney primary schools at its Fairford facility. During the visit the students were inspired by a shop floor tour and a 3D printing workshop featuring Fairford’s newest technology. The students were able to develop their computer-aided design skills using CAD tools and had the opportunity demonstrate their capabilities by making specialised multi-core cables. The students also had a chance to observe a 3D printing workshop. Our Fairford staff was pleased to welcome the children from their local schools and look forward to collaborating with STEMworks in future projects.
