Takeuchi has always believed in the company being more of a family than anything else. With 2020 being a year of distance and separation we were excited to welcome all our employees and their families for a fun filled day at our new Training Center.
At Family Fun Day, we had roughly 200 adults and children enjoy a pumpkin patch, food from local food trucks and numerous activities including bouncy houses, pumpkin painting, an egg race, a magician, corn hole games, a photo booth, a giant “Jenga” game and hayrides. One particularly popular event was “Meringue the Manager,” where employees paid money to throw whipped cream pies at their managers, raising an additional $600 for the local food bank.
Takeuchi had agreed to double whatever the employees raised, which resulted in the total donation of 200 Thanksgiving dinners and $2,550 in additional funds for the food bank to purchase turkeys.
“We wanted to host Family Fun Day for our employees so that they could bond after a long year apart following the pandemic,” said Takeuchi-US President Jeff Stewart. “It was also a great way for us to come together and do something for our community. I’m proud of how our employees stepped up and raised a significant amount of money that will help local families enjoy Thanksgiving dinners that they wouldn’t have otherwise been able to afford.”
In addition to supplying the food bank, Takeuchi employees have also participated in Operation Christmas Child, building over 100 boxes to send to children all over the world. As well as raise over $1,500 for the backpack kids project supplying local students with food for the rest of the school year.
“These are things that show our local community that Takeuchi is dedicated to giving back. We have been extremely blessed to have a successful year and it is the little things that can make all of the difference,” said Takeuchi-US President Jeff Stewart.
