The United Way Giving Campaign is Trinseo’s annual, company-wide fundraising program in which employees rally together to raise and donate funds to support United Way’s community-strengthening initiatives. Beyond raising funds, many Trinseo employees are also actively involved in volunteer programs with United Way.
At Trinseo’s Midland, Michigan, USA office, the participation in Young Leaders of United Way Midland County has doubled over the past year. These team members serve as ambassadors and lead a variety of community volunteer programs year-round. Recent projects have included the installment of community gardens across Midland County and a reading initiative with local elementary schools. In 2018 alone, Trinseo Midland employees spent 1,075 hours participating in 21 different community events.
The Trinseo Midland team’s support and involvement has been recognized by United Way over the years, with the company being recognized as a Caring Company of the Year and a nomination for the Corporate Community Leader Governor’s Award in 2019.
