For the second year in a row employees at a local business have gathered hundreds of items to ensure local families aren’t going without this holiday season. On Thursday, Green Bay Packaging donated more than 770 cans of food, 500 warm clothing items, and 200 toys to the Timbrook Food and Toy Drive. The employees at the packaging company gathered the donations and held competitions amongst the various shifts. “We took a vote and the Timbrook Fund seems to touch people because it helps not only children, but families as a whole,” says Customer Service Manager Lori Bassler. Dave Denson who is on the third shift was one of the biggest donors and brought in a number of canned goods.
Shipping Technician Frank Hetzel also got support from Stateline Exxon, Dollar Saver, and Walmart.
More than 35 Winchester families will benefit from this year’s drive.
All of the items that have been donated to the Timbrook Food and Toy Drive will be sorted on Friday, December 12, 2014 at 11 a.m. The items will be delivered on Saturday around 8 a.m.
