With an array of projects from virtual food boxes for families experiencing food insecurity, to outdoor in-person land conservation work with the Audubon society, to a nation-wide blood drive, the Takeda teams came together to generate over $430,000 in impact with local nonprofits.
This year, the volunteer projects addressed a wide range of social issue areas including homelessness, food insecurity, care for veterans and their families, domestic violence, STEAM education and more. The projects spanned over 49 states across the U.S., ensuring that Takeda employees had the opportunity to serve the community they call home.
As Takeda Cares Week has come to a close, we are inspired by its record-breaking success in engagement and impact. We’re particularly grateful for the leadership and involvement from members of the employee resource groups at Takeda, including the Black Leadership Council, Strive, Take Pride, IMPACTO and Faith at Work. The collective impact of Takeda Cares Week 2021 included 5,835 kits assembled, and over 4,700 hours of volunteering. Through the combined efforts of Takeda Cares teams’ across the U.S., 60 local organizations are providing the resources, advocacy and support to individuals and families in greatest need. In this tremendously challenging year, the support from Takeda volunteers has built the capacity of organizations in local communities by providing support and resources designed to improve the quality of life and strengthen the communities where Takeda employees work and live.
We’re excited to see how Takeda Cares Week continues to grow and to continue our work to strengthen communities with Takeda through virtual and in-person days of service and recurring volunteering opportunities.
