Toyota Material Handling (TMH) has announced a new partnership with Anchor House, a local nonprofit that focuses on investing in Jackson County residents through housing, employment resources and nutritional assistance. Anchor House is the only homeless assistance program serving the local community, offering two emergency shelters and the largest food pantry in the area.

“Toyota Material Handling is proud to partner with this local organisation that has an impact on so many families and individuals in our community,” said Tracy Stachniak, TMH vice president of human resources. “Anchor House is a staple in the community, and we are proud that this partnership will allow the shelter to broaden the ways they assist those in need.”

Toyota’s commitment through this partnership includes USD100,000 in financial support to Anchor House to be paid over the next four years. The company is also providing in-kind donations to meet needs that arise for Anchor House and its beneficiaries, such as non-perishable food, and business and interview attire. TMH employees will have unique opportunities to make a difference by volunteering for the organisation to provide shelter maintenance and food pantry donations.

Still senior vice president - brand management Frank Müller has handed over cheques for EUR5,000 (USD5,300) each to the Mittagskinder Foundation, the Kultur Palast Hamburg Foundation and the Wilhelmsburg Production School.

Supporting children and young people from difficult social backgrounds and giving them access to education, culture and the job market is a matter the Hamburg-based intralogistics company cares deeply about. "Especially in these challenging times, it is the responsibility of all of us to prove to children and young people that we stand by their side and do our best to give them a successful, healthy and secure future," says Müller.

"Qualifying them and training them to become competent professionals is also a valuable investment in the future of Hamburg's economy."

In 2022, The Raymond Corporation and its network of Solutions and Support Centers have been continuing to support communities across North America. 

“Supporting our community has always been an important part of Raymond’s pledge to giving back,” says Steve VanNostrand, executive vice president at The Raymond Corporation. “A momentous example of that began in 1965, when George Raymond Sr. and George Raymond Jr. began the Raymond Foundation to help support the local community surrounding Raymond’s headquarters. The Raymond Corporation continues that tradition and funds numerous projects annually to support the greater community.” 

Every year, The Raymond Corporation’s locations in Greene and Syracuse, New York; Lebanon, Indiana; and Muscatine, Iowa support over 100 nonprofit and educational organisations with monetary contributions, forklift donations and voluntary participation. In addition, Raymond strongly supports education by collaborating with high schools, trade schools, colleges and universities on a number of programs, as well as providing students with facility tours, mentoring and a cooperative program.

“At Raymond, giving back is at the core of our company values, and we thank our employees, who are an integral part in helping us live out this mission,” says Michael Field, president and CEO at The Raymond Corporation. “As we continue to celebrate our 100th anniversary, we are grateful for the members of our network across the country who continually work to give back to local organisations to strengthen our communities.”
