The Make An Impact program, which will officially launch in January 2003, has generated tremendous interest while in pilot mode from businesses and non-profit organizations alike. "I'm expecting even more participation and contributions next year so our impact will not only be sizable, but will make a significant difference in the lives of many," commented Denise Laine, President & CEO of American Transitech.
"We need innovative and effective programs that assist the community and American Transitech's Make An Impact program is clearly meeting that need," said Dave Sandretto, Executive Director of Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. "With reduced cash donations from food drives this year, and a 20% increase in demand caused by the recession and unemployment, our community needs have grown."
"The partnership with American Transitech has been a big win for everyone. Because of American Transitech's Make An Impact program not only has the community benefited, but Stanford Linear Accelerator Center has saved $5,000 from disposal costs associated with toner cartridges, we've heightened the awareness and importance of recycling, and improved our recycling reporting process," said Janet Adams, Deputy Purchasing Officer of Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Stanford University. "We're now looking for ways to enhance our recycling program in 2003 so we can contribute even more to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties."
"We are pleased to be a partner with American Transitech in this important effort," said Leonard F. Kwiatkowski, vice president, Lockheed Martin Space & Strategic Missiles. "The Make An Impact program is a great example of how businesses and employees can help the environment and demonstrate good corporate citizenship."
"As business leaders we have an obligation to forge strong, healthy business-community connections. At American Transitech we've made it our mission to provide businesses with environmentally-friendly products that significantly reduce their bottom line so partnering with us to support a local non-profit organization is a natural extension of their business model. We commend Lockheed Martin Space & Strategic Missiles and Stanford Linear Accelerator Center for being socially and environmentally responsible," added Denise Laine.
