MIDDLETOWN – President Container Group (PCG) in Middletown has launched an initiative to provide corrugated boxes to food banks, shelters, and service organizations to help meet the increased demand created by the pandemic.
PCG donated 20,000 containers “without a question asked,” said company Vice President Larry Grossbard.
The company has created “the PCG Cares Initiative” to continue helping wherever corrugated containers are needed. With its offices in Moonachie, N.J., and its manufacturing center in Middletown, the company will help communities in both states with its contributions of packaging, building partnerships such as the one it has with the Center for Food Action in New Jersey.
“Our goal is to help each other, one box at a time,” Grossbard said. “We are all responsible for doing our part to serve the communities around us. By providing corrugated containers, we will provide one more necessary item to food pantries, shelters, and other such organizations, helping them stretch their resources further and help more people in need.”
PCG is one of the largest manufacturers of corrugated containers in North America, producing more than 2 billion square feet of corrugated products every year. The company fabricates its corrugated containers with renewable and recycled source materials when possible, which are manufactured, transported, and recycled using renewable energy.
