We Care

From the very outset, we have been obsessed with making the community we live in a more vibrant place.  Not only is it the right thing to do, we genuinely love the place we call home and are serious about our role as caretakers.

We are proud to support a number worthy organizations, on both the local and national level. We invite you to learn more about them, and if you are feel their work is as important as we do, to help us support their efforts.

The BAZ commitment doesn’t end at the corporate level.  Many of our employees independently contribute extensively to causes they are passionate about and cast a wide net of services that have a real impact in our community.

BAZ Recycling

BAZ believes in protecting our Earth’s resources – and has implemented an active recycling program for paper, cans, printer cartridges, and other recyclable consumables and resources. Several area organizations benefit from our recycling programs including St. Vincent DePaul Society (Aluminum Recycling) and Clothing Closet of Toledo.

Casual Fridays Fund

At The BAZ Group, we use our Casual Fridays as an opportunity to remember how fortunate we are. Each week, every employee at The BAZ Group contributes $2 to our Casual Fridays Fund. At the end of each year, we vote internally to award the Fund to a local organization that is in most need of support.

Here are a few of the organizations that we have contributed to in the past:
