It's Better to Give than to Receive - January 2015


Appleton, WI; January 30, 2015 – In the holiday spirit of giving, Flair Flexible Packaging had multiple facilities coordinate donation drives to benefit local and national charities.  Flair’s facility in Houston, TX recently organized a gift donation for a local nursing home.  The donation period lasted for 10 days and the employees definitely showed their kindness, donating more than 50 wrapped gifts along with a cash donation.  The local Senior Center and the residents were overwhelmed by the generosity and were very grateful for the donations. 

Flair’s headquarters in Calgary conducted a similar donation, selling raffle tickets for door prizes with the proceeds being donated to the Calgary Food Bank.  Flair also generously offered to match the employees’ donation amount, which resulted in a $3,400 donation to the food bank!  This was a great donation to a worthy cause which provided assistance to more than 132,000 people last year alone.

Finally, Flair’s facility in Appleton, WI selected 10 charities to receive cash donations.  These local and national charities were selected during their recent Holiday Party and the list was compiled from suggestions by the staff.  The list of charities that received donations includes:

  • Neenah Menasha Fire Rescue
  • American Heart Association
  • National Public Radio
  • NAMI Outagamie
  • Charity: Water
  • Wisconsin Public Radio
  • Saving Paws Animal Rescue
  • Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation
  • Multiple Sclerosis Foundation
  • Fox Valley Humane Association

Flair is proud to display philanthropy in our communities, and our employees are appreciative to work for a company who is dedicated to giving to others!
