Associated Bank is giving back this holiday season with the donation of new and gently used Associated Bank office supplies to over 20 local nonprofits in Brown County to help meet the community need for office supply resources. The office supplies distribution took place on December 14 at the Associated Bank corporate office at 433 Main St. in Green Bay.
Associated Bank is excited to provide nearly $8,000 in office supplies such as file folders, binders, desk organizers, highlighters, tape dispensers, and binder clips. Local non-profits were invited to pick up donations, with the help of the Volunteer Center of Brown County.
This unique donation will help reduce the amount of supplies that will end up in a landfill and alleviate costs the nonprofit partners would incur purchasing these items on their own.
Associated Bank is committed to giving back to its local communities and is proud to play an active role in helping communities grow and prosper. The excess office supplies were made available as a result of Associated Bank offering flexible work arrangements to its colleagues.
“This initiative is one of the ways in which Associated Bank is supporting local community organizations,” said Alyssa Gilson, community events and volunteer program manager, corporate social responsibility at Associated Bank. “We are excited to work with these nonprofits this holiday season to provide office supplies to many around the community.”
Over the past several weeks, Associated employees have volunteered more than 40 hours to sort and prepare these materials. Employees were also onsite to assist with the donations.
“We’re grateful to Associated Bank for the office supplies donation,” said Kathy Wucherer, CASA of Brown County philanthropy director. “Receiving donated office supplies from community supporters like Associated Bank helps us to dedicate more resources to our CASA child advocacy program and the children we serve.”
