Personal Connections Drive Employee Participation For Changing Tomorrow Day at Astellas
Date:9/14/2012

NORTHBROOK, Ill., Sept. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- More than generosity of spirit drives employees at Astellas Pharma US, Inc. (Astellas Pharma US), a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Astellas Pharma Inc. (Astellas), to participate in the company's annual corporate social responsibility initiative, Changing Tomorrow Day, that wraps up today. A personal connection to the locations and a close tie to the company's mission of improving the lives of patients drive employees to volunteer.

For Mayumi Gaines of Astellas, the chance to volunteer for a project at the Ronald McDonald House in Maywood hit close to home. "My nine-year-old son was born with a craniofacial disorder called Crouzon Syndrome and had to undergo major surgery last year," said Gaines.  "We were lucky to live close to the hospital, but knowing how challenging it is for family members when their children are hospitalized motivated me to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House."

Astellas employees like Gaines will be working on service projects throughout the United States, Canada and Brazil for Changing Tomorrow Day 2012. Points of Light, a non-profit organization, helped identify worthwhile sites throughout the country where employees will be teaching kids about health and wellness, beautifying buildings and grounds, painting health inspired murals, preparing and serving nutritious food and assembling hygiene kits for the homeless. In all, nearly 2,000 Astellas employees will take part in service projects throughout the Changing Tomorrow Day campaign, which is more than 80 percent of the company's total workforce in the Americas.

Masao Yoshida, President and CEO of Astellas, said he is gratified by the employees' response to Changing Tomorrow Day. "It is very important to us that we give back to our communities as much, if not more, than they give us. After all, these communities are our homes, too," he said.
