Some of the employees from Cummins Box Hill had the opportunity to volunteer 50 hours of work to Taralye Learning Centre for Deaf Children located in Blackburn. Taralye’s mission is to partner with families, other providers and the community to improve the linguistic, educational and social outcomes of deaf children by promoting early diagnosis and response to hearing loss through innovative early childhood intervention services, research and advocacy.

Cummins believes a company is only as healthy as the communities where we do business. Corporate Responsibility is one of Cummins’ six core values: serving and improving the communities in which we live. Improving our communities implies a broader level of involvement, engaging in dialogue around problems, building coalitions around solutions and giving resources and skills to build the capability of our communities.
With the help of Eastern Volunteers and the Cummins Box Hill Community Involvement Committee, ten employees volunteered to assist Taralye with a mail out for one of their major annual fundraising events. The Cummins employees sorted, folded and enveloped a total of 3500 newsletters, providing a saving of around $2000 to Taralye. Staff at Taralye were wonderfully warm and welcoming and very accommodating. The extent of their generous hospitality was evident when the Cummins employees were given a private tour of the centre by the CEO and enjoyed home baked cupcakes for morning tea!
The Cummins Box Hill Community Involvement Team looks forward to a continued relationship with Taralye Learning Centre.
