Annual Christmas Tree Decorating Contest generates nearly $4,000 in donations

In the spirit of giving, employees at NPC participated in an annual Christmas Tree Decorating Contest to give back by supporting area food banks and non-profit organizations.

In 2016, a total of 17 departments participated in this year’s contest which generated over 500 food items and nearly $4,000 that was distributed to area food banks and other local chapters of non-profit organizations.

NPC’s purchasing department shoots and scores with their Pittsburgh Penguins hockey-themed entry into this year’s company-wide Christmas Tree Decorating Contest.

Additionally, each participating department designated a charity to support and the company then made an additional monetary donation to that charity in the department’s name. This year’s selected charities included (some departments selected the same charity to support):

  • LDC Fund (NPC charitable fund in honor of the late Leroy D. Corbin, an employee who lost his life in a car accident in January 2012)
  • Ronald McDonald House Charities – Mid-Penn Region
  • Child Advocates of Blair County
  • Christmas Carol Foundation
  • Semper Fi Fund
  • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation – Team Talan
  • Bedford Humane Society
  • Scarlet Dragon Packs
  • Love, INC (Bedford County)
  • The ARC, Blair County
  • SCI Somerset Puppy Program
  • Mending Hearts

Each participating department decorated a Christmas tree to display in their area of the company. After a few weeks of collecting canned goods or non-perishable food items and monetary contributions, the donations are collected and counted, then distributed to area food banks and non-profit organizations.

NPC has been an integral part of the Blair County business community since 1954, and supports numerous charitable organizations throughout the region.
