United Way Fox Cities awarded Great Northern the Sustained Excellence Award for its continued commitment to the organization. This is exciting news for Appleton employees at Great Northern who make an extraordinary effort each year to donate and promote the mission of United Way by making annual goals and challenging the team to surpass them.
The Twin Cities’ Great Northern Cares team is making a big impact through its partnership with Feed My Starving Children, a nonprofit organization that tackles world hunger by sending volunteer-packed, nutritious meals to 70 different countries. In January, the team packed 26,136 meals that will feed 71 kids for an entire year in Sierra Leone! The event was a lot of fun and very rewarding for all who participated.
Great Northern is now a member of the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS), a select group of companies that Amazon officially recognizes as packaging experts who can help e-commerce vendors with their packaging challenges.
The holidays can be a stressful time, especially for those with limited resources. With this in mind, the Laminations team located in Appleton recently adopted two local families for Christmas. In addition to shopping for gifts, employees held a bake sale to raise funds, and plant employees donated personal gas gift cards. In total, each family received about $800 worth of gifts.
