When the Kubota Kares program launched back in 2018, its mission was simple – get involved and give back to the community. With navigating the challenges of a pandemic, Kubota’s program and mission took a pause but have grown substantially since then. With hopes of formalizing and expanding its philanthropic efforts, Kubota reestablished its Kubota Kares initiatives.
Community and Empowerment
In 2018, the Kubota Kares team created a connection with the Northern Illinois Food Bank and their community – providing a monetary donation in order to contribute to their initiative of solving hunger! In addition, the team was able to pack meals onsite at Kubota and then followed up with some meal distribution opportunities. The pandemic then halted employee efforts, but the team was able to restart their initiatives towards the end of 2021. In March of 2022, Kubota employees took part in the Easy Eats meal packing event, where 60 volunteers helped pack 400 easy-to-make meals for families in need. Later that spring, Kubota Kares participated in the Northern Illinois Food Bank’s “5K/10K,” raising additional funds for the non-profit.
For many years now, Kubota has continued working with their local chapter of the Salvation Army. Over the holiday season, Kubota employees organized an Angel Tree – dropping off gifts for families and those in need.
For Earth, For Life
All these experiences present opportunities for the Kubota team to unite around a shared goal and see how a little bit of good goes a long way. Let’s pass it on!
