Fans of the Green Bay Packers have yet another reason to cheer on their football team this season, and it’s all for a good cause. Pillars has been selected to receive a generous donation of hygiene products thanks to a partnership between Tork and the Green Bay Packers to “Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch.” All of the details are laid out in the official press release featured in part below:
“Tork®, the professional hygiene brand of leading global hygiene and health company Essity, is again partnering with the Green Bay Packers to kick off the 2022 ‘Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch’ campaign. As part of this program, Tork and the Packers will work to raise awareness and promote the benefits of proper hygiene, and ultimately provide community partners with essential hygiene products that help reduce environmental impact.
‘Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment is critical at stadiums like Lambeau Field – which can hold upwards of 80,000 fans – as well as within our communities,’ said Don Lewis, President of Professional Hygiene at Essity. ‘Together with the Packers, we are proud to spearhead community initiatives, like Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch, in order to deliver hygienic experiences to fans, while giving back to those in the community who rely on programs like Pillars Green Bay and the Fox Cities, for essential services.’
Tork and the Packers are working together to support and give back to the Green Bay community. For every catch the Packers make during the first five home games of the season, Tork will donate $250 worth of safe, effective and sustainably produced hygiene products, such as hand sanitizer, wet wipes, paper roll towels and toilet paper (up to $30,000 in products) to local nonprofit organizations that are working to improve the well-being of those in need. The purposes of both Pillars in Green Bay and the Fox Cities align with Essity’s mission to breaking barriers to well-being.
‘For years, we have relied on Tork hygiene products at Lambeau Field on gameday and every day to meet the needs of our players, staff and fans,’ said Chad Watson, director of sales and business development for the Packers. ‘We’re proud to again partner with Tork to promote hand hygiene in order to help prevent illness and give our fans, players and the community the tools they need to stay healthy. We’re looking forward to highlighting the importance of hygiene and sustainability in our community through another season of the Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch campaign.’
Last year, in partnership with the Packers, Tork donated $28,000 worth of sustainable hygiene products to local charities in the Green Bay and Milwaukee region.”
Pillars served more than 1,300 people experiencing homelessness in the Fox Cities in 2021. That number includes more than 350 children. The giving spirit of our community, including organizations like Essity and the Green Bay Packers, ensures that our clients have their basic needs met on their way to finding a place to call home.
