Winnebago Industries has contributed 268,640 meals to its hometown communities through Fill-the-RV and Fill-the-Boat Food Drives organized by Winnebago, Grand Design and Chris-Craft employee volunteers across the country.
“Hunger impacts people in communities, large and small,” said Stacy Bogart, Winnebago Industries’ general counsel and head of corporate responsibility. “Our employees recognized this common need, across our communities, and came together to help feed families this holiday season. … Strong community partnerships and engaged employee volunteers are essential to Winnebago Industries living our purpose.”
Community GO Teams, led by and comprised of Winnebago, Grand Design and Chris-Craft employee volunteers, championed the drive within the company. These teams engage their colleagues, foster connections and learning, and inspire action within the communities Winnebago calls home.
“Our goal was 60,000 meals for the first Fill-the-RV and Fill-the-Boat Food Drive,” said Nina Greiman, Winnebago engineer and Community GO Team co-chair. “We were overwhelmed by our coworkers’ generosity and creativity. Including a dollar-per-pound match from the Winnebago Industries Foundation, we quadrupled our goal, contributing 268,640 meals. Most importantly, we hope this food provides some peace of mind to our neighbors who may otherwise struggle with hunger.”
