Multimedia from this Release

On December 9, employees held a service event to support the Seacoast Family Food Pantry. Volunteers built, decorated, filled and staged winter care packages for distribution to families across the Seacoast. In total they made boxes for 400 families in need.

On November 29, employees spent the day with residents at Betty’s Dream, an assisted living facility in Portsmouth, NH. Volunteers decorated the facility and joined them for a fun holiday party.

On November 21, Timberland employees joined Seacoast Adopt-A-Block in Portsmouth, NH to compile Thanksgiving meal-boxes for those in need.

On November 21, Timberland set up its annual Holiday Giving Tree. Each year, employees decorate a tree with gift tags that list items needed by individals and families affiliated with five local charities. Employees then choose a tag to purchase a holiday gift for someone in need.

On December 13 and 14, Timberland employees volunteered for Operation Blessing, which supports families that may struggle with a number of issues including health and medical care, hunger and disaster relief among many other issues. Each year Operation Blessing holds an annual Gift Giveaway where parents and caretakers can come in and "shop" for their holiday giving needs.

To tie a bow on the holiday season of giving, Timberland will host an in-house service day on December 20 to wrap all of the gifts collected for the annual Holiday Giving Tree. Gifts from the Giving Tree will go to support five local charities.

CAMPAIGN: Timberland’s Commitment to Community

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

In November, outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland kicked off its holiday season of giving at its Stratham, NH headquarters to benefit the local community. Since then, through the company’s Path of Service™ program, more than 100 employees have volunteered at seven events in support of nonprofit organizations in New Hampshire.  Approaching its 25th year, Timberland’s Path of Service™ program provides employees with up to 40 paid hours each year to serve in the community.

“Timberland regularly sees a spike in end-of-year service hours as employees eagerly sign up for projects to make the holidays a little brighter for people in need,” said Atlanta McIlwraith, Timberland’s senior manager of community engagement and communications. “Through the Path of Service™ program, employees are able to use these hours to serve nonprofits they are passionate about.”
