Plasman Lawrenceburg Manufacturing receives 2024 Hero Kid’s Place Award

On Friday, March 22, Plasman Lawrenceburg Manufacturing received the 2024 Hero Kid’s Place award. This award is given to a community partner who has made a significant impact in providing donations towards the programs and resources that combat child abuse.

“Over the past several years, Kid’s Place has been the recipient of Plasman’s corporate partnership program, MVP.  This partnership has provided $8,000 worth of food, hygiene items, diapers, and has provided our therapists with sand trays to begin sand tray therapy,” said Charlsi Legendre, M.S. Executive Director, Kid’s Place.   “Kid’s Place could not be successful without community partnerships and support, and we are honored to have Plasman join our fight against child abuse.”

Kid’s Place provides services to children and families that have encountered severe child trauma. Last year alone, they provided services to over 500 victims of child abuse in Giles, Lawrence, Maury, and Wayne Counties. All services provided were free of charge to the victims and their families.

“Our team members at Lawrenceburg take great pride in supporting and giving to those in our local community that are in need,” said Sammie Jo Ellis, Human Resource Manager, Lawrenceburg Manufacturing. “Our community partnership with Kid’s Place is heartfelt and rewarding, we are so honored and grateful to have received this recognition.”

Through Plasman’s corporate partnership program called MVP – Corporate Giving, Fundraising & Participating, we work together to support non-profit, youth-oriented organizations that are focused on creating a safe, healthy, and sustainable future for children and our new leaders of tomorrow. As One Driving Force, we place great importance on working together across all locations with a global focus on supporting the communities in which we live and work.

Plasman is more than a global leader in automotive manufacturing – we are a team committed to affecting change, helping children in need, and giving back to our communities.
