We recently asked our employees to choose one word that describes the culture at The Container Store, and express it in a way that shows their individual interests, talents, hobbies or backgrounds. The result was nearly 1,000 heart-warming photos that we shared here, on our What We Stand For blog.
For each employee who submitted a photo, we donated a $50 Store More Card to the non-profit of their choice, which resulted in a more than $40,000 donation to organizations across the country.
We also invited our customers to tell us what nonprofit they stand for by entering the organization online or in our stores for a chance to win $1,000 cash AND $1,000 in elfa and elfa installation services. We gave away one of those prizes to a nonprofit from EVERY SINGLE STORE plus we chose 10 winners from our online submissions, totaling more than $150,000 in cash, product and services donated to these groups.
We received thousands of entries from customers and we are so excited to share the winning nonprofits with you now! Click here for the list of winners.
