Eastern Industrial Supplies, Inc. established the Eastern Cares program in 2002 dedicated to four main “Cs” of caring focusing on Company, Community, Country, and Culture. This philosophy has been carried over into Eastern Power Technologies.
In 2002, the Eastern Cares program was established to exhibit a profound care for people with the ultimate goal of having a positive impact upon the lives of others not only within our company, but also in our communities, our country, and other cultures around the world. Eastern offers helping hands of service because of our concern and compassion for others in need. Using our gifts, talents, and abilities and giving from our resources, Eastern is committed to serving others.
Caring for our Communities
Eastern demonstrates care and commitment to our local communities by volunteering our time and resources to local outreach programs. Each branch is encouraged to meet needs in their local communities. These local outreach programs include community blood drives, work with rescue missions, community outreach activities, and youth and children’s homes. Eastern donates to organizations such as Miracle Hill Ministries, Campus Crusade for Christ and Fellowship for Christian Athletes. Also, the Cares Fund, fully funded by Eastern Associates and often matched by Eastern, provides support to meet specific financial needs within our communities.
Caring for our Country
In caring for our Country, Eastern’s heart for caring extends beyond our physical reach. Eastern associates have participated in national outreach efforts such as Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child, National Breast Cancer Awareness, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Awareness, Care Packages for U.S. Troops in Iraq, and Hurricane Katrina Relief.
Caring for other Cultures
Eastern’s care for other cultures is exemplified through our Eastern Cares Mission Work Program, supporting Associates with paid leave to take part in mission-oriented projects, whether at home or in distant corners of the world. Eastern Associates have traveled to Romania, Peru, Kenya, and Tanzania just to name a few areas in service to others. In addition, Eastern’s care is demonstrated through company donations to aid in relief efforts after devastating natural disasters such as the Thailand Tsunami.
