Supplies for soldiers

A little bit of home can go a long way for military service members stationed overseas. That’s why Eastman sponsors the Supplies for Soldiers program, an initiative that sends care packages to our soldiers to boost morale and help our troops.

In 2015, Eastman shipped 784 care packages to service members. Team members at multiple Eastman sites participate in the program , demonstrating support for the network of loved ones, family and friends on active duty outside the United States. This year, we hope to do even better by sharing simple mementos of home to these brave people.

Between now and Dec. 5, 2016, supporters can make a monetary contribution through the Eastman Foundation or donate items at our community collection sites.

One book at a time

Room to Read, a global nonprofit organization, envisions a world in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their communities and the world. Eastman shares that same philosophy. By contributing to establish primary school libraries and supporting girls in completing secondary school, we’re transforming children’s lives through literacy and gender equality in education.

Strength in numbers

Eastman team members have a long history of donating personal time and talents to projects that help communities. Currently, more than 400 of our employees serve on philanthropic boards around the globe. In addition, team members donate tens of thousands of company-paid hours annually to help local service organizations achieve goals.
