OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
Totten Tubes, through its charitable giving program, reflects its commitment to shareholders, customers, vendors and employees, as well as to communities the company serves.
Throughout 2019 and 2020, we have had the privilege of contributing to the following organizations:
This year Totten Tubes chose The Midnight Mission for our holiday giving. The
Midnight Mission has been helping the homeless and near homeless since 1914.
Every year they provide Christmas gifts to families in need. They rely on
donations to make this happen.
Each tag on the tree represents a child's gift wish. We will replace each tag with
a gift for the child and an ornament for the tree. We expect to have a beautifully
decorated tree with plenty of gifts by Christmas!
Employees may also choose to purchase items on The Midnight Mission's
Amazon Wish List and have it delivered directly to them.
We will deliver the gifts to The Midnight Mission on December 21, 2020.
The Midnight Mission serves the community every holiday season.
We are grateful to have a small part in helping!
MAY THROUGH JULY 2020
At the beginning of the COVID pandemic, we knew we wanted to help those hit hardest by the crisis. Totten Tubes matches all employee contributions to food banks or organizations offering COVID 19 support.
We're always humbled to learn that any contribution reaps great benefit, as noted by the letter below from God's Pantry in Pomona, CA.
In December 2019, we had the pleasure on contributing to an outstanding local organization, The Midnight Mission. Founded in 1914 in Los Angeles, T.M.M. helps men, women and children experiencing homelessness.
Our staff was visited by then public affairs manager, Joey Weinert, who educated us on the vast array of services provided by the mission, which include food, bridge housing, education, mental health services, a job readiness program and their Courtyard Outreach which provides a protected area on the grounds for individuals resistant to the idea of a shelter.
The Azusa branch of the Philanthropy committee present The Midnight Mission with a contribution.
In addition to monetary contributions, Totten Tubes has volunteered our time to helpful causes.
In October 2019, our Lathrop Branch committed to a one-year contract to The Hope Ministries which hosts The Hope Shelter apartments in the city of Manteca. The rent-free apartments are available to families looking to rehabilitate their lives in a structured and supportive environment. Each apartment is "adopted" by groups or individuals to maintain for an entire year. When our Lathrop branch reached out to the ministry, an apartment - which needed much TLC - had just opened up.
The contract includes maintenance, supplies and decor for families who live there for up to three months at a time. When a family moves out, our Lathrop branch is contacted to ensure everything is in working order, including appliances, bedding and toiletries, for the next family. Since 2019, our Lathrop branch has served approximately five families.
Sandy and Noah (Noe's son who was super helpful!) ensure lights are in working order.
Brandy applies the trim, everyone's favorite job.
Marcelo and Dan rehab the kitchen.
Noe sands the kitchen table to prep for a new paint job.
The finished product waits for a new family!
The furniture was donated by a local charity.
The apartment was cleaned from top to bottom and includes loving touches such as this welcome mat and toys for incoming children.
