ATC employees join annual Neighborhood Challenge
For the third consecutive year, employees at American Transmission Co.’s De Pere office engaged in some friendly competition with neighboring businesses to help fill the shelves at Paul’s Food Pantry which serves Green Bay and its surrounding areas. January and February are historically low months for donations at the pantry, so the businesses created the event to help reduce the shortage.
ATC joined PAi, AmeriLux, M.J. Electric, WEL Companies and Advanced Disposal to gather non-perishable foods over a four-week period between Jan. 13 and Feb. 7, 2020. Each week had a different theme and suggested items: Protein Power, Pantry Staples, Rise and Shine and It’s Personal. The number of items each business collected each week were tallied and reported.
At the end of the challenge, the business donating the most items per capita received the revered Paul’s Pantry trophy. This year’s winner was WEL Companies, with a total of 11,800 items. However, the most important win is for Paul’s Pantry, who have an additional 28,697 items to help support the clients they serve.
