Takeda has a natural connection with the communities where we live and work in the United States. We are surrounded by organizations that are doing great work in our communities and have dedicated employees engaged in giving back and supporting giving and volunteerism.
Takeda Cares is the signature corporate giving program in the U.S. and embodies our mission of striving toward better health and a brighter future for people worldwide through innovation in medicine.
The Takeda Cares program supports the communities where our employees live and work - both near our major hubs in MA, CA, GA, IL, MN and PA and through our field-based employees.
Through the recent COVID-19 pandemic, there is an increased need for community service. COVID-19 has affected the normal operations of our community partners and increased the need for community service in new ways. Our employees were able to take advantage of a different way of giving. Our traditional in-person community service day was expanded to a week of virtual volunteer opportunities benefitting organizations in the areas of health, environment, education and hunger. Employees continued our efforts to make a meaningful impact, virtually, with activities such as:
Takeda Cares Week is an opportunity for our employees to connect through a shared sense of community, further supporting Takeda’s commitment to giving back to the community.
“I’m very excited about Takeda Cares Week. Knowing that we can make a difference and have a positive impact on someone’s life, especially during uncertain times, is a motivating force that can inspire all of us!”
