Tualatin Food Pantry
The Tualatin Schoolhouse Pantry provides emergency food to qualified households in a welcoming environment. Their goal is to eliminate hunger and its root causes because they (and we) believe that no one should go hungry.
In an industry first, CUI has initiated a program designed to give back to the local communities where their manufacturer rep organizations reside. A percentage of total revenue generated by CUI’s rep network is set aside and donated to each firm on an annual basis as a charitable commission intended to be passed along to the charities of their choosing.
This giving program has made a significant impact on several of the participating rep organization employees, allowing them to connect in a very personal way with causes that are important to them. “Our team was honored to be able to contribute to a number of charities though CUI’s rep giving program. The effect of the program has been both emotional and motivational for all our staff,” stated Mark West, Sales Manager at Beacon Electronic Associates.
CUI employees regularly serve the local community with their time and talents both in teams and as individuals. Each January CUI offices shut down on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the company spends their time volunteering at local charities. Throughout the year CUI works closely with Hands On Greater Portland to connect employees with volunteer opportunities.
“The CUI Volunteer Program was created as a way to put our company’s core values into action. It’s important to CUI to make time to give back and build relationships within our community,” affirmed CUI’s VP of Human Resources, Katie McKenzie.

Charities and contributions have always been important to CUI; it is in alignment with our values and who we are. We recognize our potential to give and are thankful for all the opportunities we have had to share with our global community.
