Giving back to the area we do business in lets us become a true part of the community in which many of our employees and customers build their lives.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
Tampa-based contract packaging company Versatile Packagers is continuing to give back to its community through a number of employer-sponsored projects and financial contributions this year.
“Giving back to the area we do business in lets us become a true part of the community in which many of our employees and customers build their lives,” explains Bob Vande Weghe, President, Versatile Packagers.”
Each year, upon reviewing various opportunities, Versatile Packagers selects a handful of local organizations to support. This year, the Company has supported the MacDonald Training Center, Junior Achievement and local youth sports leagues.
The MacDonald Training Center works to shatter the barriers to independence that have traditionally kept people with disabilities from being valued and contributing members of their communities. They provide innovative life and job skill training curriculums, community based residential support, and competitive employment placement services. Thus far, Versatile Packagers has supported this organization through monetary donations and providing guidance on select packaging projects that employ individuals with disabilities.
Versatile Packagers has financially supported Junior Achievement in its efforts to bring the real world to students through hands-on curriculum delivered by trained classroom volunteers, and has also financially supported local youth sports leagues through various sponsorship opportunities.
Rick Shave, CEO, Versatile Packagers, states, “The holidays are a popular time of year for individuals and companies alike to give back, but it’s very important to us at Versatile Packagers to exhibit this community support year-round. We look forward to supporting a few new organizations in the upcoming year.”
