ACCO also hosted fundraiser to benefit the Wounded Warrior project, and the site is now manufacturing a line of products in partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project. WWP is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor and empower veterans and servicemen and women who are injured in combat.
“The addition of the WWP products to our manufacturing efforts is a win for our employees and our customers,” general manager Jeff Almasian said in a media release. “Adding these products to the list of items made here ensures that our facility is maximizing the manufacturing assets we have. In addition, customers can feel good that part of the price they pay goes to such a worthy cause.”
The product line manufactured in Sidney includes planners, calendars, desk pads and appointment books featuring snapshots and stories of Wounded Warriors and their families. The nonprofit will receive a portion of the proceeds generated by the sale of these items through the end of 2014. A minimum of $125,000 has been pledged by ACCO Brands and AT-A-GLANCE, with the total donation expected to exceed that amount.
