Taylor Farms wants to thank its employees for their consistent philanthropic efforts in donating their time and talent to good causes year after year. To celebrate National Philanthropy Day, we are highlighting some of the amazing ways Team Taylor has helped others this past year. Throughout 2016, Taylor Farms has supported initiatives including Labor of Love, American Heart Association’s Heart & Stroke Walk, a local backpack giving program and American Cancer Society Celebration of Life.
Philanthropy has been a part of Taylor Farms’ culture since the beginning, starting with CEO Bruce Taylor’s grandfather leading the charge in establishing the local Salinas hospital in the 1940s. This effort is now company wide; we’re proud that we’re able to provide every Taylor Farms operating company the opportunity to give back to their community and that our employees embody the true spirit of philanthropy.
Though our employees don’t do it for any recognition, we’re honored that their commitment to philanthropy was wonderfully recognized last week when Taylor Farms Pacific was presented with the Outstanding Corporation award at the National Philanthropy Day event at the AFP California Capital Chapter-San Joaquin Extension summit. The Boys and Girls Club of Tracy nominated us for this award and we’re so appreciative that they thought of our team and wanted to recognize all of their hard work.
