Chase Plastics continues tradition of giving

CLARKSTON, Mich., Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In a season set in traditions, Chase Plastics continues to create their own with the return of their successful "Giving Card" campaign.  The unique holiday program resumes this year — even bigger and better —  by recognizing and awarding a selected charitable organization nominated by Chase customers and suppliers. Participants are encouraged to share their own stories of giving, and in turn, Chase Plastics will select the most compelling submission and award a $2,000 gift to the chosen entrant's favorite charity. 

Beginning November 14th, Chase customers (past, present and future) and suppliers are invited to log on to www.chaseplastics.com/giving to submit a short response on what "benevolence means to them" as well as a description of the charity they are passionate about. The final day to submit the entry is December 11th, with the selected charity announced on December 15th. The Company will also share the stories and provide information about how to become involved with the charitable organizations on their social media platforms.

Because Chase Plastics holds giving and charity in high regard, it came as no surprise that Chase's customers and suppliers felt the same way when the program was introduced in 2016 and, as such, responded overwhelmingly to the request. What did come as a pleasant surprise, however, was the difficult decision to name just one winning entrant. As a result, Chase tripled their contributions by donating $1,000 to each of these organizations:  Party for a Purpose in Monticello, MN; Life Center Northwest in Bellevue, WA; and Children's Oncology Group Foundation in Philadelphia, PA.

"It is an honor to have such supportive customers and suppliers. Last year, we were overwhelmed with the number of entries submitted.  It truly is heartwarming to see so many lend a helping hand during this season," said Chase Plastics' President, Kevin Chase. "It is a part of our company culture to express our charitable efforts to help others and I am so proud to know that our employees, customers and suppliers have impacted the lives of so many."

As the Company's charitable efforts continue to grow, so do the hearts of Chase's employees. Whether it's providing hurricane relief donations or adopting a deployed solider and their troop, the Chase team continues to give 110%. No matter how little the need or great the cause, it's within the nature of Chase employees to help those in need to rise above their obstacles and be the best they can be.
