900 Arizona Children have a Merry Christmas thanks to Toyota Financial Services

Breezy1The leadership team at TFS’ Customer Service Center in the West (CSCW) helped make this holiday season a bit brighter for many families in their community by participating in the Chandler Care Center annual toy drive.

Toyota Financial Services in Chandler, AZ has been a 10 year partner of the Chandler Care Center, an organization whose mission is to promote students’ school readiness and academic success by providing medical treatment, social services, and parent education programs. In addition to year round volunteering, during the holiday season CSCW donates both charitable funding and volunteer time to support the annual toy drive. This year, over 900 children in the Chandler community were able to choose holiday presents, visit Santa, and enjoy cookies and hot cocoa with their families. This traditional event allows Toyota team members to give back in a meaningful way and this year was no different. Members of the CSCW leadership team supported this year’s event by hosting the holiday cookie decorating table. Volunteer and Master Kaizen coach, Brian Peters, recommended the use the Toyota Production System to create efficiency and accuracy at the cookie decorating table, but was quickly sidetracked by tiny faces rushing to the table to enjoy adding sprinkles to their cookies.

Chris Brenner, Corporate Manager for the Service Center in Chandler, commented “It’s always an honor to represent TFS in our community alongside my team members and to see children’s faces light up with big smiles!”   All in a day’s work…
