December 13th 2019, marked one year accident/incident free for our TRG Halls Fulfillment Center and Warehouse. “Safety begins with teamwork,” says Donna Cook, Business Manager at our Fulfillment Center location. “That has been our motto in these last 365 days and it’s nice to see everyone looking out for their fellow co-worker. Having each other’s backs makes a real difference in preventing injury. Simultaneously raising team spirit was a huge plus as well!” The group came together for a photo and were presented with jackets to honor their well-earned achievement. Job well done TRG Halls Fulfillment Center and Warehouse!
This past Holiday season our TRG Halls facility reigned in their innovative thinking skills and team spirit to create a one-of-a-kind holiday display that won first place for Sorghum Valley Tree Decorating contest. The event where the contest was held and showcased was established to help local families, churches, and food pantries in the community. The contest participants/sponsors were made up of local businesses, churches and village groups, there were 65 participants in all. Donations were collected by the many people who visited the event and with the great weather they had, there were more than 5,000 visitors this year!
The participants in the contest all did their best to make the show worthwhile for everyone visiting the village and supporting their community. There was no set theme, but our team decided on one a little outside of the box this year, they chose “Safety” as the theme of their display. “With all of the hand-made items created for this event in mind, our Safety themed display was really the talk of the walk,” says Tom Duggan, General Manager at our Halls facility. Working together on this and some even dressed in PPE attire were TRG employees, Kristen Hartman, Danielle Wright, Crystal Dutton, Bret Cook, Donna Cook, Nona Rodenhouser, Stacy Rogers, Tommy Morgan, and Jennifer Armstrong. They created home-made ornaments in TRG colors, some in the shape of little TRG boxes; tree toppers, garland, and ribbon made out of bubble wrap; a TRG pallet cut into the shape of a Christmas tree and a safety snowman made out of TRG material and matching the team that put him together in his PPE attire including his safety glasses, vest, earplugs, and bubble wrap scarf! Great job TRG Halls!
This year our Marlton team did something a little different, they donated gifts to teens for the Holiday Season. The non-profit organization, Angels Community Outreach was suggested by one of the TRG team designers, Anna Becker. She learned about the organization a few years ago and was intrigued by all their good deeds throughout the community. When we reached out to Angels Community Outreach to ask how we could help, they mentioned their Teen Drive. They said with most of the focus and effort on the little kids, tweens and teenagers can sometimes be overlooked. Often times, teenagers just want to be able to hang out with their friends at a local fast-food restaurant or they need a new pair of sweats. So, with the help of a suggestion list from Angels Community Outreach, our team pulled together a sizable donation. We donated hoodies, socks, PJs, bathrobes, blankets, gift cards, make-up, electronics, perfume, cologne, hats, gloves, wristlets, jewelry, brushes, footballs, candy and snacks. We hope we put smiles on faces and brightened some spirits this holiday season!
