North America Gives Back
The year 2020 may have brought on a lot of changes but DENSO’s commitment to giving back did not change. Through adjustments, creativity and commitment, our associates across North America continued to give back to the communities we live and operate in.
Here are just some of the ways our associates and locations gave back this year:
Face shield production and donations across NA

Thank you and congratulations, DENSO Associates!
Our continued commitment during this difficult year were recognized with DMTN and DIAM being nominated for awards by their communities.

We couldn’t do any of this without the efforts of our associates. Thank you for continuing to demonstrate the DENSO Spirit through your efforts to give back.
Ways to give year round!
For those still compelled to give back, some suggestions are:
- Buy Local — It’s no secret that local businesses have been hard hit by the pandemic. Thus, consider getting this year’s gifts from local purveyors or ordering holiday meals from local restaurants and markets.
- Give to Organizations Supporting Frontline Workers — While first responders have spent most of 2020 tending to the public, there are many organizations at national and local levels doing important work to support them, donating things like PPE, food and care.
- Support Local Food banks — Food insecurity is on the rise. And with more people looking to feed their families over the holidays, many food pantries are offering contactless ways to give so they can fulfill their missions safely.
- Donate Blood — Since the pandemic’s start, blood centers have reported an increasing need for blood donations. While COVID has rightfully grabbed much of the medical world’s focus, more blood means more people can get the care they need.
- Go Digital — Not all volunteer activities are in person. Online resources like VolunteerMatch help connect organizations with people looking to help in all sorts of ways, including online mentorship and other activities able to be done online.
