Tork, an Essity brand, and the Philadelphia Eagles are partnering to highlight the important role sustainable hygiene plays in improving the overall health and well-being of fans and the community. Up to $40,000 of Tork hygiene products will be donated to Project HOME and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia this season.
PHILADELPHIA, August 25, 2023 /CSRwire/ - For the third consecutive season, the Philadelphia Eagles are teaming up with Tork, the Essity professional hygiene brand headquartered in Philadelphia, to kick off the 2023 “Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch” campaign. As part of this program, Tork and the Eagles will work to raise awareness and promote the benefits of proper hygiene.
For every catch made by the Eagles throughout the season, Essity will donate Tork essential hygiene products, including hand sanitizer, paper roll towels, and toilet paper, to two incredible Philadelphia organizations:
• Project HOME, which serves to alleviate the underlying causes of poverty and break the cycle of homelessness in Philadelphia and
• Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the oldest hospital in the United States dedicated exclusively to pediatrics which strives to be the world leader in the advancement of healthcare for children by integrating excellent patient care, innovative research and quality professional education.
The total donation will amount up to $40,000. The partnership with the Eagles demonstrates the commitment of the Tork brand to supporting a healthy, sustainable, and strong community.
“Performing at a high level is important both on and off the field,” said Brian Napoli, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships, Philadelphia Eagles. “We are proud of our performance as a leader in sustainability, partnering with Tork for the past 16 years. By using their innovative hygiene solutions, we can offer a superior fan experience at Lincoln Financial Field. We’re also looking forward to the annual ‘Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch’ campaign, making a meaningful impact in our community.”
In the last two years, $65,500 worth of innovative and sustainable Tork hygiene solutions have been donated to a local charity.
“Tork is committed to providing innovative, sustainable hygiene solutions – from the 70,000 cheering fans at Lincoln Financial Field to those who benefit every day from the important work of local nonprofits like Project HOME and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia,” said Matthew Urmanski, VP Sales & Marketing North America, Essity Professional Hygiene. “We are proud to once again partner with the Philadelphia Eagles for this meaningful community initiative. ‘Tackle Hygiene With Every Catch’ allows us to bring awareness to the importance of sustainability hygiene to fans and community members alike.”
