You might think a huge company with over 1,000 employees might be too big to lend a helping hand to their community. That’s not the case at the Campbell Soup Company in Napoleon, where they reached-out to families in need again this holiday season.
The employees of Campbell’s and the corporation itself joined together with a food drive, collecting over 11,600 pounds of food. Those cans and boxes were donated to 6 different food pantries around Henry County, from Ridgeville Corners to Deshler. They also received monetary donations, which were divided among the pantries, each receiving $180 to help in the purchase of food. The employees of Campbell Soup wanted to adopt families in ‘project we care’, and that number jumped from 4 to 18 families this year. Those families received hams, boxes of food, toiletry items, and items for the children.
