Each year, Polaris Industries Inc. hosts a week of festivities at its product development center in Wyoming to show appreciation to its nearly 400 employees at that location.
“In celebrating our successes, we found that giving back to the community was a top priority for our employees, Jessica Tierney, polaris coordinator, said. “We wanted to provide opportunities for employees to donate their time and resources, and a food drive was one of our events.”
Liz Swanson, human resources assistant, added, “This year we had fun filling a Ranger RZR (side by side vehicle) with food for Family Pathways Forest Lake Food Shelf.”
The Forest Lake Family Pathways Food Shelf serves an average of 205 families each month and distributes an average of 18,639 pounds of food, household goods, baby products and personal hygiene items monthly. The non-profit organization operates six other food shelves in east central Minnesota and tso in west central Wisconsin.
