In 2015, OnTrac provided over 5,000 cans to the cause along with a $1,500 donation. OnTrac hopes to do the same in 2016. A donation of $1,500 was made at the Million Can Crusade kick-off event on November 1, 2016 and the OnTrac Chandler corporate office is in full swing to surpass the previous year’s results. OnTrac creates a positive competition by breaking up the corporate office into teams and honoring the team that collects the most cans. Each team’s contribution helps OnTrac to reach their overall goal of 3,500 cans. Lunch will be provided to corporate employees if everyone comes together to reach the company goal as a whole.
OnTrac Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Laura Peterson said, “2016 marks the sixth year that OnTrac has participated in the Million Can Crusade. As a company, we look forward to this time of year every year. Personally, I love to see the energy and compassion that each employee brings to the office. We are all working towards the same goal of feeding hungry families for the holidays, but it’s also a great honor to receive the OnTrac Golden Can Award for being the team who donates the most cans to such a wonderful cause.”
In addition to the Million Can Crusade, OnTrac is a proud supporter of giving back to the communities where employees live and serve. Since 2014, OnTrac has given monetary donations of $50,780 to a variety of charities within their eight state footprint. Some of these great causes include the American Cancer Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Miracle Corners of the World, City of Hope, Container Recycling Institute, and Toys For Tots.
