'Tis the Season for Manson Giving

Some of Manson’s regional offices are giving back to their local communities this December in an effort to spread holiday cheer among residents in their areas, making good on one of Manson’s core values—Take care of people first and always.

The company’s Manson Cares Program has a long history of facilitating employee engagement through giving back to local communities by volunteering, fundraising, and hosting collection bins.

“The goal, as always, is to get Manson employees involved in giving back, especially around the holidays,” says Melanie Erdman, Northwest Operations Office Manager.

Manson’s Seattle, Washington office began their toy drive on December 1st and concluded on December 13th. Once “Santa’s duffle” was filled to the brim with presents, Melanie made a drop to BMW Seattle, which is partnered with the local U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots chapter. The organization expects to donate toys to over 60,000 children in the Seattle area.

The collection drive is an opportunity for personnel across our region to donate food, toys, books, and learning supplies to under-served families in their respective communities.

“Having an office toy drive makes it safe and easy for people to give back to families through organizations like the Marine Corps Toys for Tots,” says Carey Shannon, Safety Training Specialist. “Donating was much easier before COVID-19 because holiday toy drives were readily available across Seattle.”

Also bringing Christmas joy early this year, Manson’s Jacksonville, Florida office dropped off Santa’s gift bag to their local Toys for Tots drive on December 10th. With their donation, the Jacksonville team is lending a hand as their local chapter hopes to support over 17,000 children this holiday season.

“At Manson, we wanted to give back and help make Christmas bright for local children,” says Cathy Hubbard, Jacksonville Office Manager. “Those of us who have been able to make it through the pandemic understand that many families are going through a rough patch.” The Jacksonville office is also extending their help to our furry four-legged friends. The team is also hosting a pet food drive to benefit a local spay and neuter clinic, First Coast No More Homeless Pets.

Manson’s Richmond, California office has organized a donation drive to support the Bay Area Rescue Mission, an organization that feeds and offers housing stability for homeless people in the San Francisco Bay Area. The office donation drive supports a program that delivers over 90,000 meals a month to those who seek assistance.

“It’s not just toys we are donating, but food as well,” says Trena Whitley, Manson Richmond Office Receptionist. “It’s just a way to lend a helping hand because we all need it at some point.”
