Creating healthier, more vibrant and sustainable communities
At The Toro Company we are inspired by the impact our products and people can have on our customers and the communities we serve. How a local business can cut and plow its way to growth. How a community can benefit from revitalized infrastructure. How green spaces can bring generations of families together and instill community pride. And, how we make more of our world while demanding less of it.
For over a century, we have thrived on helping customers around the world care for their outdoor environments. At the same time, we have built a legacy of giving back to the communities where our employees live and work with a focus on supporting the beautification and preservation of outdoor environments, water conservation, community health and housing, and youth enrichment. Combining the assets of our talented teams, along with product and financial resources, we are able to give back to our communities in ways that are unique to The Toro Company.
Here in Minnesota, with our global headquarters in Bloomington, we have long supported local organizations and causes to help further their missions and care for their facilities. In Minneapolis, one organization that Toro partners with is Better Futures Minnesota which provides re-entry points for formerly incarcerated men to transform lives and build healthy communities. Since its start in 2007, Better Futures Minnesota has helped men with a history of incarceration, homelessness, poverty, and untreated mental and physical health challenges achieve self-sufficiency. A core part of its program is its social enterprise, which provides on-the-job training in many areas including snow and landscape maintenance. The donation of Toro snowblowers, zero-turn mowers, trimmers, blower/vacs and walk mowers equipped the property maintenance team with a diverse array of products to meet the needs of their customers while enhancing their landscaping skills.
We are proud to support organizations like Better Futures Minnesota – along with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, The Minnesota Zoo, The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and many others to create healthier, more vibrant and sustainable communities.
