CNH Industrial and United Way Deliver Snacks Packs for a Company Day of Caring
Manitowoc, Wisconsin (October 11, 2018) In September, Case New Holland (CNH) Industrial in St. Nazianz participated in a Company Day of Caring, a United Way Manitowoc County initiative that promotes engagement and volunteerism in the community through the workplace.
CNH Industrial chose to assemble “snack packs;” kits featuring an age appropriate book, snack, water bottle, personal note from CNH Industrial and community resource materials. This project supported the company’s philanthropic focus areas of education and food security.
CNH Industrial and UWMC staff recently delivered 60 kits to Valders Elementary School. The snack packs have been distributed to Kindergarteners. These snack packs are impactful because there are many children who do not bring a snack from home. There are a variety of reasons as to why some kids come to school without a snack and these snack packs allow students to be included in snack time, no questions asked. Additionally, because those students are not going hungry, they are better equipped to stay focused on learning, socializing and growing.
The kit’s book also impacts the children. Valders Elementary School principal, Jason Procknow, stated that, “books are the gift that keep on giving.” A book from these snack packs becomes one of the children’s very own that they can add to their shelves at home.
