Packers, Tork Donate $29,000 in Hygiene Products for ‘Tackle Hygiene With Every Catch’ Campaign
Campaign promoting hand hygiene, donates $250 worth of hygiene products for every catch made through the first five home games of the season
GREEN BAY, Wis., December 5, 2023 /3BL/ - The Green Bay Packers and Tork®, the global leader in professional hygiene from Essity, wrapped up their “Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch” campaign by donating $29,000 worth of hygiene products to two local nonprofits.
The campaign ran through the first five home games of the Packers season, and for every Packers catch made during those games, Tork pledged to donate $250 worth of hygiene products.
The Packers had a total 116 catches, and the resulting $29,000 in products will be donated to two deserving local charities. The Packers and Tork, along with Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed, held a donation event on Tuesday to formally honor the nonprofit groups and kick off the delivery of the items. Recipients of the donations include:
• Pillars—provides shelter, support and solutions to address the housing needs in the Fox Cities
• Harbor House—provides safe shelter and support services to survivors of domestic abuse in Northeast Wisconsin
“Tork products play a huge role here at Lambeau Field in keeping our players, staff and fans alike healthy by fostering positive hygiene habits,” said Craig Benzel, vice president of sales and business development for the Packers. “Good hand hygiene plays an important role in preventing illness, and we’re glad to partner with Tork to promote hygiene through donations of sustainable Tork hygiene products in our local community.”
Also part of the campaign, helpful hygiene awareness messaging at Lambeau Field has served to remind fans of the effective, easy-to-use Tork hygiene products used throughout the stadium on gamedays and every day.
“Essity extends our gratitude to the Green Bay Packers for all the contributions they made to help create this opportunity for Pillars and Harbor House as increased hygiene standards are still as important as ever,” said Cindy Stilp, Marketing Communications Director, Essity. “We are grateful to be part of this community where we employ 900 people at our Service Excellence Center as well as our manufacturing and converting facilities in Appleton, Neenah and Menasha.
