Kewaskum, Wisconsin (October 28, 2010) – The combined efforts of employees at Regal Ware Worldwide headquartered in Kewaskum, Wisconsin, resulted in $6,947.55 and 2,879 pounds of food being donated to 2 local food pantries.
Employees were divided into 8 “teams” who entered into friendly competition to raise the most funds and collect the most food to support the Full Shelf Food Pantry in West Bend and the Kewaskum Community Food Pantry. Regal Ware owns and operates manufacturing and office facilities in both communities. Teams were encouraged to be creative in their fundraising activities and did so by raffling such items as a gift certificate tree, preferred parking spaces, Green Bay Packer Tickets, and breakfast served by the company’s executives. Employees also held chili “dumps”, bake sales, hot dog lunches, brat frys, popcorn sales, bake sales, and craft sales during the 2-week challenge. According to one employee, "My team might not have ‘won’ but in my eyes all the teams are winners. We give you our money from our heart and we hope to help others.”
In celebration of 100 years of manufacturing in West Bend and Kewaskum, Wisconsin, Regal Ware employees are conducting a variety of activities to celebrate and give back to the communities in which the manufacturing facilities and offices have been located since their founding.
