A Closer Look at TLP Corporate Citizenship

TLP is, first and foremost, a company of people. That’s why we’re so closely connected and committed to the communities in which we do business.

From a wide variety of community involvement and charitable initiatives to a comprehensive sustainability program, we’re determined to keep touching the lives of people in every way possible.

Community and Charitable Efforts

TLP - Touching the Lives of People

Touching the Lives of People (TLP) – What started in 2007 as the team name for a cancer-research run has expanded into a company-wide program to coordinate all our “in-kind” giving and volunteerism. Employees share the types of opportunities and charities that are important to them. Together, we ask and answer the question: “When, where and how can we help?”

United Way – With over 85 percent participation, the annual employee campaign raises tens of thousands of dollars and sets new records every year.

GPS Education Partners

GPS Education (formerly Second Chance) Partners – TLP has been involved from the start of this effective program, which provides struggling high school students with the chance to work at local manufacturing plants while acquiring enough credits to graduate from high school.
