Stevens Point-based Worzalla recently concluded the holiday season with multiple charitable endeavors.
In December, Worzalla set up a Community Giving Tree and set up a raffle prize giveaway to encourage the community to contribute donations for the Salvation Army. The drive was successful in collecting hundreds of food items, clothing, household items, and other in-demand items for those in need in Portage County.
Internally, Worzalla also held a donation drive for its associates to sponsor two families through Operation Bootstrap and Big Brothers Big Sisters. While the original goal was to sponsor just two families, Worzalla associates over-delivered on donations that the company was able to triple their goal by sponsoring six different families for the holidays.
Worzalla also participated in Letters from Santa through the Portage County Business Council, with over $500 donated to the Humane Society of Portage County and CAP Services’ Family Crisis Center.
As a business with more than 125 years of history in Portage County, Worzalla consistently looks for opportunities to give back to the community, according to Brianne Petruzalek, vice president of human resources.
“We are proud to be part of such a supportive and thriving community, and look forward to future campaigns to support families, students, and literacy,” she said.
Worzalla has a history of supporting a variety of causes in Portage County, including donating books to libraries and schools, sponsoring literacy and learning events, and participating in community-wide fundraisers and charity events.
Worzalla prints many popular children’s books and is best known for being the domestic manufacturer of the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. More information is available at Worzalla.com.
