Last week Plant 45 employees gathered to wrap presents and load them into trucks for 25 CAPS — Child And Parent Services — families. Each department signed up to bring in gifts or donate money to purchase gifts and needed household items for each of the families participating in the CAPS holiday Adopt-A-Family program.
Many of our plants participated in this year's Toys for Tots drive and we collected more than $2,500 in toys to bring smiles to children and parents this holiday season. We’re so proud of our teams for contributing to help Toys for Tots deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
