Nine Astellas volunteers from the PCP/Specialty team helped to restore a home in Tyler, Texas. The team worked with PATH (People Attempting to Help) to support the organization’s Transitional Housing Program—designed to provide safe, decent and affordable housing to low-to-moderate income families in East Texas.
“PATH acquired a rental house, and it was in need of some TLC—this is where we came in to help,” said Matt Mercer, regional sales manager, PCP/Specialty, West.
From the young girl who gets to attend a science camp for free, to the family stranded in a shelter after a hurricane, to the sick child and his family aboard a Miracle Flight, on their way to receive specialized medical care. These are just some of the people Astellas USA Foundation helped in 2017 through partnerships and grants – and there are many more. Behind every grant, volunteer activity or funded event are people, all of whom were helped by Astellas USA Foundation.
Forty Astellas employees from Astellas US Technologies (AUST) took a day to volunteer at the Clearbrook Funfest in Rolling Meadows, Illinois. AUST employees represented Supply Chain, Product Security, Project and Product Management and Quality Assurance Americas.
