Kinze Manufacturing shared their community spirit by donating turkeys and hams to two area organizations, the Mission of Hope Church in Cedar Rapids and the North Liberty Community Pantry. The donations will help these organizations provide support for local families.


Kinze donations at Mission of Hope

As a privately held eastern Iowa company, Kinze has a strong commitment to their employees and the surrounding area. “These communities are home to our employees. They understand the importance of supporting the local organizations where they live and raise their families.” said Susanne Veatch, vice president and chief marketing officer for Kinze Manufacturing. “One of Kinze’s core values, mutual respect, encourages us to look beyond our business goals and find ways to help our neighbors.”


"Kinze Manufacturing has been a blessing to Mission of Hope with their generous donation of turkeys and hams," said Joe Polzin, executive director, Mission of Hope. "Our guests are very appreciative of donations like this."


"The Pantry helps meet food and clothing needs of our neighbors through purchases and donations. Meat, something that brings many families to the Pantry, can be expensive and challenging to obtain during the colder months," said Tina DuBois, executive director, North Liberty Community Pantry. "Kinze's donation will allow families to allocate their limited resource to other pertinent things like rent, mortgages, utilities, and healthcare."
