Every year since 2004, the Toshiba President's "ASHITA" (Japanese for tomorrow) Awards are presented to a company or employees who made an outstanding contribution to strengthen and promote good corporate citizenship activities throughout the Toshiba Group worldwide to earn the trust of society and to ensure sustainable development in the community we operate.
U.S. "ASHITA" Winners
Out of over 1,000 entries globally, Westinghouse's "Day of Caring" and TABS/TAIS's Habitat for Humanity activities were recognized for their outstanding contributions to the community as the U.S. ASHITA winners.
Westinghouse organized a "Day of Caring," in which its employees participated in activities at three western Pennsylvania organizations: 4 Kids Early Learning Center, Mars Home for Youth and the Victim Outreach Intervention Center (VOICE).
TABS and TAIS are proud to be official "Whole House" sponsors as part of a 3-year program with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. They participated in special "build days" where TABS and TAIS employees helped to build homes at the San Juan Capistrano, Homes for Heroes site. In addition, TAIS DPD is an "Official Technology Sponsor" of Habitat for Humanity – OC. This means that over the course of the three years, 150 Habitat families throughout Orange County will receive new laptops. At one of the laptop distribution events included Toshiba employees from TAIS spending the morning with 10 Habitat families teaching them how to use their new laptop.
