Springdale Plant Volunteers at United Way of Northwest Arkansas

United Way of Northwest Arkansas’ Gift in Kind Warehouse connects millions of dollars of donated product to over 230 local non-profit agencies while giving unwanted items, primarily Walmart vendor products that have been returned, have a slight defect, or are marked by vendors to donate, an outlet instead of going to landfills. The warehouse has very few full-time staff and relies heavily on volunteers from the community. Ball Metalpack volunteers have spent many hours over the last few years helping sort through boxes of donated product ensuring items are thoroughly checked and sorted. Ensuring the products are properly sorted allows “shoppers” (non-profit agencies) easy access to the items they need and keeps the warehouse flowing efficiently.  


Oakdale Partners with Relay for Life

Each year Oakdale employees participate in the local annual Relay for Life event.  Our plant typically is one of the top fundraisers at this event. Team members help by shopping, cooking, baking, serving chili, making blankets and pens, obtained raffle prizes, and on the day, setting up, selling jewelry and walking, lots of walking!
