This week, 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 $26,500 worth of hygiene products to several local nonprofits in need.
With "Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch," which ran through the first five home games of the Packers season, Tork pledged to donate $250 worth of hygiene products for every Packers catch. The Packers had 106 catches through the Tennessee game, and the resulting $26,500 in products will be donated to two deserving local charities.
The Packers and Tork, along with Packers wide receiver Christian Watson, 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:
"We're proud to continue relying on Tork hygiene products at Lambeau Field for our players, staff and fans alike, particularly during the colder months of the year when good hand hygiene plays such an important role in preventing illness and keeping us healthy," said Chad Watson, director of sales and business development for the Packers. "On gamedays and every day, we're glad to partner with Tork to promote hygiene through donations of Tork sustainable hygiene products in our local community."
Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson appeared at the Essity Press Conference in the Lambeau Field Atrium on Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2022, to conclude the Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch Campaign.
Also as 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 and their staff 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," Cindy Stilp, Marketing Communications Director, Essity. "We are grateful to be part of this community where we employ 1,000 people at our Service Excellence Center as well as our manufacturing and converting facilities in Appleton, Neenah and Menasha. We are also proud to support this economy and, together, do some really good work for the health of the people who call the Fox Cities their home."
