Employees of HTT, Inc. show Grit and Generosity during Pandemic
$10,000 personally donated to local charities
Sheboygan, WI – HTT Inc., a world-class metal stamping company asked all employees to participate in a “Pay it Forward” donation drive for three outstanding local charities: Sheboygan County Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, and the Sheboygan Salvation Army. The drive took place from May 10th to May 23rd. Despite the uncertainty since the pandemic, HTT employees showed real community spirit and leadership by donating $10,120 in 14 days.
As an essential business, HTT has balanced the need to serve its vital customers while maintaining an environment that is safe for its employees. Knowing that its employees were asked to work during the safer at home order, HTT began finding small ways to appreciate their employees and try to help other local businesses. HTT started by distributing local restaurant gift cards and Sheboygan County Chamber Cash to award employees for going “above and beyond” during the crisis.
After a few weeks of awards, employees came forward with a suggestion that these types of funds be used to directly help community members. HTT took this idea and developed the “Pay it Forward” challenge. Each employee was paid an extra $125 and invited to participate to the degree they wanted in donating to the three community charities.
With Sheboygan County’s unemployment rising to 15% in April and with more than 9,000 Sheboygan County residents out of work, HTT employees wanted to help people in our community who need it. When asked why he donated, HTT employee William Buss said, “I donated for a good cause. A lot of people can’t get out or make themselves a meal. It’s nice that there’s a program for them to get a fresh, hot meal delivered by someone.”
Upon completing the donation drive, HTT’s President, Greg Noble, made a company-wide announcement thanking everyone for their commitment and dedication to the company and community. Noble stated, “Personally, I am proud to work with all of you who care about the community where we live and have the courage to step up and make a difference in people’s lives”.
