Helping the community

Opportunities to share

Providing resources

Encouraging volunteerism

HOPE’s mission is: To provide volunteer opportunities and resources for Teichert employees in all of the communities in which we live and work, and to bring employees together for a common goal.

One of Teichert’s greatest strengths is giving back to the communities in which we work. Teichert employees have always been excited and willing to help support families, children, the infirm, and underprivileged to build strong communities. HOPE provides employees with the opportunity to make contributions as they feel appropriate – whether by contributing time, money, expertise, or resources – all types of participation are welcome.

Remember a Vet Wreath Laying Event

Saturday December 16 – 9 am

Each December, Sacramento Valley National Cemetery located in Dixon, CA places a holiday wreath on each of the gravesites to honor the fallen soldiers. When opened in 2006 they placed 300 wreaths, this year they need to place 20,500. HOPE would like to gather a Teichert Team to lend a hand to help place the wreaths.
