Eastman Companies has a long history of community service. We strive not only to “create better places” by providing exemplary places to work, shop and live, we work to enhance those communities in which we serve. Eastman encourages its employees to participate in community events sponsorsed by Eastman, but also take that spirit of volunteerism to their homes and neighborhoods.

Since 1998, we have been an avid fundraiser for the American Heart Association (AHA). Each year our employees, their families and their friends participate in the AHA's annual "Heart Walk" as well as other fundraisers throughout the year, including "Have a Heart," dedicated to friends and loved ones, and "Hearts in Bloom," dedicated to supporting women in the fight against heart disease. The money raised goes directly towards community programs, cardiovascular education and research.
