Hamacher Resource Group reports strong philanthropic drive

BY Michael Johnsen

WAUKESHA, Wis. — Hamacher Resource Group on Tuesday announced its employees made a difference in 2011 by donating thousands of dollars to local and national charitable organizations.

The company has always had a strong emphasis on giving back to the community through donations and volunteerism, and offers employees multiple opportunities to participate in fundraising activities, such as casual days and potluck lunches. The HRG owners group believes in giving to organizations that employees are personally connected to and passionate about helping. Employees are encouraged to suggest organizations they would like considered and at the end of each year, everyone votes to decide how the money raised will be donated.

“We are fortunate to have generous employees who want to support organizations that are meaningful to their fellow associates,” HRG president Dawn Vogelsang said. “By providing fundraising opportunities that are fun to participate in, we not only give employees extra incentive to donate, it also brings us closer together as a company when we rally for a good cause.”

Munchkin launches Click Lock line

BY Allison Cerra

NORTH HILLS, Calif. — A designer and manufacturer of infant and toddler products has introduced a new collection of spill-proof cups.

Munchkin said its Click Lock cups are BPA-free and utilize tactile, visual and audio cues to confirm the cup’s lid is properly locked in place. The cups also are available in a variety of designs, colors and styles, including trainer, sippy, straw, flip straw and big kid cups.

"At Munchkin, we continuously aim to find new ways to make parents’ lives easier. Moms have reported that they never really know when a sippy cup is sealed correctly, and that they constantly battle leaks," Munchkin chairman and CEO Steven Dunn said. "Our new Click Lock cups address this issue with a locking mechanism that moms can see, feel and hear — so they can be 100% sure the cup is sealed shut and won’t leak."

Munchkin’s Click Lock cups are now available at retailers nationwide and tout a suggested retail price range from $2.99 to $7.99.
