A Year of Drives
Every year the Yamaha Guitar Group employees come together to gather needed items for charity.

This year, we were proud to continue our annual food drive and toy drive, alongside participating in a new shoe drive. Explore further details about them below:

The Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank Food Drive

This local food drive serves residents in need within the Conejo Valley, an area encompassing our Calabasas headquarters. Manna Food Bank has been helping neighbors in need for over 50 years. Click here to discover more about their impactful work.

This year, we contributed 290 pounds of food. Looking ahead, our aim for next year is surpassing 300 pounds! Stay tuned to find out if we achieve our goal.

The Marine Reserve Corps Toys for Tots Toy Drive

Many of you are probably already familiar with Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots. They have been collecting toys since 1948. The Yamaha Guitar Group employees have been participating in Toys For Tots with our annual employee toy drive for 3 years now. To learn more about Toys For Tots, click here.

MORE Foundation Shoe Drive

And adding to our list this year, Human Resources Director, Daniella, discovered a charity that collects used in good condition sneakers to help fund reforestation projects in Ghana. This was a great opportunity for the Yamaha Guitar Group staff to come together and do good with all those shoes that are just sitting in the closet. We collected an overflowing box of shoes and past them along to MORE Foundation. To learn about MORE and how you might be able to donate too, click here.
