Knutson Cares: Packaging a Promise of Comfort

At Knutson, we believe being good corporate citizens means giving generously to the people and organizations that make our communities great. Across all offices, we continually look for and engage in opportunities to serve by contributing to various organizations that align with our values and mission.

To give back to our metro area youth, on Wednesday, June 5, employees gathered at Knutson’s Minneapolis office to create Knutson Care Packages for the Boys and Girls Club of the Twin Cities, benefitting a local school. At the outing, employees organized supplies and packaged up care essentials like deodorant, body wash, hairbrushes, lotion, dental hygienic items, and more to be distributed to children in need.

“Assembling personal care packages for the Boys and Girls Club and for a nearby school was an incredibly rewarding experience,” said Melissa Kilian, Human Resources Coordinator. “Collaborating with so many Knutson team members proved that together, we make dreams real! This event was just one of many volunteer efforts we have planned for this year, and it’s truly inspiring to see the positive impact a dedicated team can have on our community.”

Representatives of the school receiving the donations, Maple Grove Middle School, were extremely appreciative of the generosity of Knutson’s team.

“Wow! This is amazing, thank you so much,” said one staff member, who coordinates the school’s resource program. “Many students will benefit from your generous donation. Thank you, thank you!”

Knutson is partaking in several volunteer opportunities over the next several months as part of an initiative called Knutson Cares. To learn more about our recent community involvement efforts, visit our Community Involvement page.
