New Program begins with pandemic-era contribution of 20,000 containers to food banks, shelters and others.
MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (December 27, 2021) – At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, food banks, shelters and other service organizations contacted the President Container Group (PCG) requesting corrugated containers for people in need to carry meals and store belongings.
In response, PCG donated 20,000 containers “without a question asked,” said company Vice President Larry Grossbard.
The giving did not stop there. Out of that need, the company has created “the PCG Cares Initiative” to continue helping wherever high-quality, clean and reliable corrugated containers are needed. With its offices in Moonachie, N.J., and its manufacturing center in Middletown, N.Y., the company will help communities in both states with its contributions of packaging, building partnerships such as the one it enjoys with the Center for Food Action in New Jersey.
“Our goal is to help each other, one box at a time,” Grossbard said. “We are all responsible for doing our part to serve the communities around us. By providing corrugated containers, we will provide one more necessary item to food pantries, shelters and other such organizations, helping them stretch their resources further and help more people in need.”
PCG is one of the largest manufacturers of corrugated containers in North America, producing more than 2 billion square feet of corrugated products every year. The new program reflects PCG’s deep concern for its communities and the greater good, also demonstrated by its sustainable practices. The company fabricates its corrugated containers with renewable and recycled source materials when possible, which are manufactured, transported and recycled using renewable energy.
