Dallas, Texas, Dec. 19, 2018 – Republic National Distributing Company (RDNC) remains true to its core value to care about the well-being of families, communities and associates through several Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts during the year.
One in particular, our partnership with the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, is at the forefront this time of year. “Our service through Toys for Tots is especially important to RNDC,” said Lorraine Luke, RNDC Vice President of Human Resources. “Not only to we get to support children and their families, but we also support our military which is important to both our CSR and hiring efforts.”
RNDC associates nationwide went beyond the call of duty in their efforts to support the 2018 U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. RNDC Grand Prairie associates, in particular, delivered in a big way. On Dec. 7, an RNDC 18-wheeler loaded with more than $12,500 in toys made its way to the Toys for Tots drop off at the Dr. Pepper Ball Park in Frisco, Texas. The truck was packed with eight pallets of toys and more than 80 bicycles from the RNDC associates. Led by Vice President, Greg Harrison, he stated for next year, “We are looking forward to bringing two truckloads!” For a look at the local news coverage of the event, click here.
From supporting local youth programs to military veteran goodwill efforts, RNDC is committed to their social responsibility with the communities where they do business across the country. RNDC Chief Executive Officer Tom Cole strongly supports the program. “The toys our associates collect are distributed to children in their communities. It’s a fantastic way to contribute at a local level.”
