Huhtamaki Recognized By Oswego Health with 2022 Community Partner Award

(Oswego, NY – December 5, 2022) The Community Partner Award is designed to recognize a corporation or a foundation that demonstrates outstanding commitment through financial support and through the encouragement and motivation of others to take a leadership role toward philanthropy and community involvement. This year Oswego Health recognized Huhtamaki at the 3rd Annual Oswego Health Foundation Gala held on November 12th, for their dedication to Oswego Health during the COVID pandemic and beyond.

 

Oswego Health has also been fortunate to have Huhtamaki’s support since 2015 at both the Annual Oswego Health Foundation golf tournament and our For Your Health 5K and Wellness event. In 2018 Huhtamaki won the 5K Company Competition Award for having 26 of their employees participate in the 5K event. Most recently Huhtamaki created the Pay it Forward Campaign to lift the spirits and morale of our frontline employees during the height of COVID. This campaign was based on an employee’s desire to reach out to support essential healthcare workers at Oswego Health to keep them safe and show appreciation for their work. Leadership at Huhtamaki agreed to match employees’ gifts. In total with the corporate match, Huhtamaki donated $4,745 to Oswego Health. In addition, Huhtamaki employees volunteered their time to pack 250 sweet treats and gifts into specially created Huhtamaki packaging for delivery to various departments throughout Oswego Health.

 

Mary Ann Drumm, Oswego Health Foundation Board Vice Chair & Gala Committee Chair shared in her remarks in front of the 248 guests present, “Huhtamaki has been a shining example of a corporation with a desire to support its community.”

 

Huhtamaki Plant Manager, Mark Southwick shares, “We are honored to receive the 2022 Community Partner award from Oswego Health. Grounded in our core values of Care, Dare and Deliver we are committed to supporting and caring for our community. We are proud to partner with Oswego Health as we work together to strive for a healthy and thriving community for all.”
