Two Supply Drives in Trenton, New Jersey

In June, the Trenton, New Jersey Small Packaging (metals) facility hosted a supply drive to support Trenton’s local animal shelter. Around 125 items were donated by employees to help the shelter care for animals in need of a home.

In August, the facility hosted a school supply drive to provide needed supplies to teachers and students in the Trenton Area School District. Supplies for teachers were packaged in paint cans donated by the York, Pa. facility. Student supplies were packaged in backpacks. Combined with donations from other companies and organizations, the Trenton Area School District was able to provide over 3,000 backpacks of school supplies to students in need.


“I am grateful to be a part of an organization that allows us to assist our community in need."
