Dolco Packaging, a Tekni-Plex business unit, is supporting the Stockings for Soldiers campaign with volunteers from its Decatur, Indiana, manufacturing facility.
Working with other organizations in Adams County, Dolco employees assembled hundreds of stockings that are being shipped to active duty military personnel around the world.
"We appreciate their service and hope that the stuffed stockings help provide a little bit of home for the holidays. Donating time to volunteer for the Stockings for Soldiers campaign is just one more way for Dolco employees to give back to those that put themselves in harm's way to protect American values. We are honored to have participated in this year's campaign," said Jim Baumgartner, Dolco plant manager.
Dolco understands the value of workplace diversity. Its team includes veterans of military service (as well as relatives of service people) who bring to the job superior technical ability, excellent teamwork skills and a strong work ethic.
An employee at the company's Decatur plant, Becky Everett, has a granddaughter in the Air Force. "It is comforting to know that if my granddaughter is ever deployed, someone from her hometown is thinking of her and others serving our country overseas."
