Advantest (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. (ASC) decided December 11th, 2010 to be the First ASC Family Day. ASC's employees and their family members gathered at Tian Ping Shan in Suzhou Province and carried out a cleaning project.
Tian Ping Shan is one of the tallest mountains in the suburbs of Suzhou. It is a popular destination for many tourists to enjoy the changing colors of foliages in autumn.
On the Family Day, ASC's employees and their twenty-one family members volunteered to participate in the cleanup project. While learning how to sort out trash, children picked up garbage and empty cans discarded along the mountain trails. When the mountain climbers saw these volunteers picking up garbage, they sent their cheers to them. In the end, the participants enjoyed the sense of accomplishment by successfully collecting as many as four bags of garbage, which weighed more than 20kg in total.
ASC will continue to initiate the environmental protection activities and the cleanup projects so that we will be able to increase our employees' and their families' awareness for environment, as well as contributing to our community.
