Dragons in the water support Habitat for Humanity

Each year, Marshall County (Ala.) Habitat for Humanity hosts Dragon Boat Races to raise money in support of their projects. This year’s event took place on June 1.

 

Huhtamaki – Albertville employees joined 21 teams for the event and finished strong with a second-place final run of 1:12. The one-day festival raised more than $35,000.

 

Last year, the event provided funds for Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a local family. They were also able to provide yard clean-up for a member of the community. This is the only fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity for the year and its success is critical for the work done by Marshall County Habitat for Humanity.

 

Fulton Bike Drop off
Huhtamaki-Fulton employees assembled and donated 14 girls and 14 boys bikes and helmets to Friends of Camp Hollis. The bikes were then given away to children attending Camp Hollis this summer.

 

The Friends of Camp Hollis support the camp with funding for staff and needed projects. Projects in the past included installing a new indoor fireplace, planting shrubbery, and offering financial support for those in need.

 

The organization also helps offer full and partial scholarships for area families in need, so their children may attend the summer camp.

 

2019 Trek Across Maine
A team of six cyclists from Huhtamaki - Waterville rode in the 2019 Trek Across Maine, June 14-16, to benefit the American Lung Association.  This three-day ride covers 188 miles. 

 

The event attracted 1,251 cyclists and raised more than $1,250,000.

 

Devin Bell, Louis Chartier, Bob Hussey, Micah Maisamari, Brian Smith and Josh Turner represented Huhtamaki at the ride. 

 

Many employees donated to the Trek with their United Way donations, while Huhtamaki contributed to help cover donation fees.

 

This specific ride gets national attention each year in major publications such as Bicycling magazine for a being a fun and well-organized ride that benefits from the sponsorship of a respected organization.
