Stevens Point, Wis. – A group of volunteers from Worzalla, an employee-owned book printer specializing in printing high-quality children’s books, cookbooks, and hard-cover best sellers, assembled to clean up a stretch of County Highway HH on Saturday, May 22, 2021. Volunteers cleaned up 2 miles of the highway and cleared many bags of trash and debris.
Worzalla recently adopted the section of County Highway HH from R to Burbank as part of the Portage County Adopt-A-Highway program. This program allows businesses and organizations to claim a section of highway in their community in an effort to reduce litter, enhance the environment and beauty of area roadsides, and educate the public to properly dispose of litter.
“Since Worzalla has such deep roots in the Portage County community, we thought it fitting to lend our support in beautifying our community through the Adopt-A-Highway program,” said Brianne Petruzalek, Vice President of Human Resources. “We appreciate the associates and their family members who came together to organize and participate in this volunteer opportunity.”
Worzalla’s Adopt-A-Highway cleanup was organized by Worzalla’s PeopleConnect Crew, a team of Worzalla associates who plan an annual calendar of activities focused on associate appreciation and community involvement throughout the year.
Worzalla’s Adopt-A-Highway effort is just one example of Worzalla’s extensive community outreach efforts. Other efforts include donating books to libraries and schools, sponsoring literacy and learning events, participating in community-wide fundraisers and charity events, and printing a variety of popular children’s books including the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.
