WATCH: TFS Thanks Teachers across the South Bay and Beyond

For the second year in a row, Toyota Financial Services (TFS) team members volunteered to pack supply kits for teachers in schools in the communities surrounding the company’s California headquarters. TFS Thanks Teachers is a way for TFS to show its appreciation for the impact teachers make on local youth while providing them with supplies they can use in their classrooms.

What started last year with 1,000 teachers in 31 local schools expanded this year to 2,400 teachers at 57 schools in Torrance, Hawthorne, Lawndale, and Gardena, and an additional 5,100 teachers supported by 20 TFS locations across the country.

Each kit included tissues, disinfecting wipes, a first-aid kit, a water bottle, glue sticks, Post-it notes, pens, pencils, Sharpies, highlighters, and a thank you note from a TFS team member, all packaged together in a reusable tote bag.
