Investing in Our Communities
Trex supports charitable organizations that serve our local communities. We donate funds and volunteer to help the non-profits that tackle pressing needs in the communities where we operate.
In 2020, we continued our longstanding partnership with United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley. United Way runs local initiatives to improve health, education and financial stability. By matching employee donations, we donated $191,000 to our local branch in Virginia and were honored to receive a Gold Award from United Way recognizing Trex as the branch’s largest contributor.
Trex is assisting military veterans and their families through our three-year partnership with Yellow Ribbon Fund. We’ll donate $180,000 by 2022 to provide housing, transport and family support to veterans, again matching employee donations dollar-for-dollar.
The COVID-19 pandemic saw our communities face new challenges. It’s estimated that 45 million people may have faced food insecurity in the United States during 2020 in the wake of the pandemic. Trex responded by donating $120,000 from sales of decking samples to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
