On a monthly basis, employees visit the W. L. Morse School and read a book to all of the first grade classes. Employees who participate in this program “adopt” a specific class for the year and become their “Hitachi reader.” Hitachi donates copies of each month’s book to the classes and the library. To celebrate the end of the school year, the children visit Hitachi’s Tarrytown headquarters. This program is now in its 11th year.
The North American Food, which takes place each summer during the month of July, is a collaborative program among Hitachi Group companies throughout the United States and Canada.
