Since 2015, Trinseo and its employees in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, U.S. have given more than $36,000 in donations to support programs and initiatives of the Valley Youth House, including the charity’s popular Backpack Challenge and Holiday Gift Drive.
Trinseo Berwyn employees have collected more than $1,300 in school supplies - notebooks, pencils, folders, and more - so that youth in foster care, including those ready to attend college, are well positioned for the academic year ahead. Monetary donations also help cover common costs, like purchasing books or dorm-room essentials, or give students the opportunity to overcome financial hurdles that may keep them from attending college.
The Trinseo Berwyn team also works with the Valley Youth House to make holiday wishes come true. Using a list from the Valley Youth House as their guide, our employees do some extra shopping during the holiday season to purchase and donate gifts for children and teens in foster care.
