November 2020 – Each year we look forward to our annual golf outing where we have a great opportunity to spend time with our trusted partners and valued customers and to say thank you. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognized it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel our golf outing this year.
With the help of our partners and customers, our golf outing has always donated a significant amount of money to charity. Communities need our help now more than ever. Therefore, in lieu of our golf tournament, we initially decided to donate $20,000 and to match up to $10,000 in donations from those who have previously attended our tournament.
Because of the kindness and generosity of our customers and vendors, we ended up receiving $7,750 in donations. Given the increasing toll the pandemic has taken on our local communities, we increased our own donation to $51,000 for a total of $58,500.
We are so grateful for the thoughtfulness, support and partnership from the following companies who joined in this effort:
- Arthur J. Gallagher & Co
- Atlantic Fasteners
- Best Source Packaging
- B-P Products Inc
- Bruce Engstrom / BlueLinx
- Cell Pak, div Fluted Partition, Inc
- Honey Cell, Inc
- Jeffco Fibres, Inc
- Paper Alliance
- Paramount Packaging
- Ponderosa Packaging
- Reily Foods
- Russell Partition, LLC
We have also been providing packaging to several charities for distribution and we plan to make additional donations before year end to help our communities through these challenging times.
