TMX CARES

We believe in helping people and have made it our business to care for our communities. TMX Cares is our community involvement and volunteer initiative dedicated to supporting all of the communities in which we live and work. And if you do the math, that’s over 1,000 communities in 17 states across the country! Our Company is committed to partnering with our team members to engage in and help strengthen our communities.

Giving Back

We are committed to improving the quality of life in the communities where we do business. From hosting a blood drive to collecting toys for children during the holidays, we strive to be responsive to the communities we serve. We achieve great things when we work together as one! Check out a few of the things we do to help our communities thrive.

THE HEART AWARD

The Heart Award embodies our mission of helping people. It’s at the very “heart” of what we do each and every day. However, there are some who go well beyond what is expected and they achieve more because of their extra effort to help others.

All participating stores and corporate departments are eligible to receive this recognition, which is awarded to the store and the corporate department that raises the most funds during a TMX Cares community initiative. Together, through our many efforts, we are able to make a significant impact on our communities, helping the people who need it the most.

WEAR YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE

We admit it. We wear our hearts on our sleeves when it comes to our TMX Finance Family and our many TMX Cares community initiatives! We’re open and honest about our feelings towards our team members and for giving back to our communities! WE LOVE IT! The “Wear Your Heart” polo shirts can be purchased by clicking below and the profits we receive from each shirt go directly to our TMX Cares Fund. We encourage you to wear these shirts at our community events to not only represent our Company, but by wearing our hearts on our sleeves, we’re letting everyone know how much we love giving back to our communities. It’s at the very “heart” of what we do every day!

TMX CARES COMMUNITY INITIATIVES

We believe in helping people and have made it our business to care for the communities where we live and work! Our community commitment helps us address the educational, food, and overall health and wellness needs of those in our communities.

We hold donation drives throughout the year: a Back-to-School Supply Drive, a Food Drive, a Toy Drive, a Warm Winter Clothing Drive, and a Blood Drive. From stores in California to Florida, from the corporate office in Savannah to stores in Nevada, together, we make a difference, community by community!

TEAM MEMBER VOLUNTEERS

Our team members are involved in their communities in a variety of ways. We are always there to help our neighbors in need whether it be volunteering at a local food bank or collecting items for a homeless shelter. It’s about helping the people in our communities who need it the most.

SUPPORT & SERVICE

We support many different programs and services to help make an impact that matters in our communities. From literacy and education to health and wellness. Our community investment initiatives reflect the local nature of our business and focuses on an assortment of organizations.

PAPERLESS INITIATIVE

Environmental responsibility means a lot to us. We want to do our part in making sure our communities are left in better condition than when we found them. That’s why we strive to be as green as possible.

We started this initiative in 2015, and since then, have significantly cut down on the paper footprint produced by our stores on a daily basis.

TMX Cares Fund Logo

We are a team. We are one. We are the TMX Finance Family.

The TMX Cares Fund allows our team members to help other team members experiencing extreme financial hardships due to unexpected and critical family crisis’ on a regular basis, not just during a natural disaster. We hear about our very own team members facing severe medical issues or that they have lost everything to a house fire, and we want to come together and offer support. We will not let our team members face these dire situations alone. We are family and we are here to help.

Being Robert’s Voice

Submitted by: Jennifer Mitton, General Manager Autism is a developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to people. It also affects how they make sense of the things around them. It is a spectrum condition, which means, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways. Autism doesn’t come with a manual. It comes with a parent who never gives up being the voice for their child. My son Robert was 6 years old when he was diagnosed with being on the spectrum. He is considered high functioning and …

My Miracle

Submitted by: Amy Kremitzki, General Manager My daughter, Abbygail Jean, blessed my life with her presence December 27th, 2002. Things were not “smooth” for her arrival. I was very ill and she was very early. My little bundle entered my life without oxygen for the first several precious seconds of her life and they are not sure how long she was without oxygen before she arrived. Doctors were also not sure to what extent this would affect her. She was initially diagnosed with Static Encephalopathy. Which means that the brain function is abnormal and it interferes with learning, development, and …

Being a Rainbow

Submitted by: Theresa Doran, Sr. Director Enterprise PMO – Operations April 13, 2018 marks an important day, National Donate Life Month. Organ donation is something I’d thought of in passing, but never truly stopped to understand the impact it makes on so many lives until I was faced with my sister’s illness. In 2008, my sister, Dina, was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Her immune system was mistakenly attacking her body affecting her liver and bile ducts. Over the years as her condition worsened, she tried every treatment plan possible including experimental treatments. To date, none of the treatment plans …

A More Certain Truth of Time

Submitted by: Jason Broce, Director of Human Resources and Colon Cancer Survivor Some say, “growing older is a privilege denied to many”. Like many quotes of wisdom, this is one that I have come to understand, yet never fully embraced until a couple of years ago. I’ve always been an advocate of my own health. As a boy, I remember watching my Dad running, lifting weights, and hanging from his biceps, and I wanted to be strong like him. Aside from a few years in college, I’ve always deliberately watched what I ate and maintained a regular exercise routine. With …

Why R.E.D. Friday

Submitted by: Kris D. Reece, Sr.  General Manager – TMX Certified Trainer R.E.D.
