Teacher Created Materials Named to Orange County's Civic 50
TCMs mission is to create a world in which children love to learn. Recognition by the OCBJ is proof that that mission is continuing to pay off.
We are proud to be honored among the top civic-minded companies for the second year in a row, says Deanne Mendoza, co-owner of Teacher Created Materials. It is important to us to give back in all of the communities where we do business, but it is especially meaningful to us in the community that we call home.
The Civic 50 Orange County, presented by OCBJ in partnership with OneOC, provides a local standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills, and other resources to improve the quality of life in the community where they do business. Of the tens of thousands of companies headquartered in Orange County, being named in the top 50 for civic dedication is quite an honor for any company.
Companies were selected based upon four dimensions of their community engagement programs: investment, integration, institutionalization, and impact. Teacher Created Materials participates in a variety of community outreach events throughout each year, including cancer research, food drives, and employee-driven charities. Most notably, the company participates in Read Across America, where all 130+ Huntington Beach based employees engage in literacy-building activities and school beautification projects at a local Title I, low-income school. Each student at the selected school also receives a backpack full of books and learning materials.
The Civic 50 OC List and Special Report will be published October 15, 2018 in the OCBJ.
