A Note from Mary Currie, Human Resources Manager from Butterball on Giving Back:  

Butterball will be engaging our employees by showing that we care with quarterly activities; We will also be striving to provide to local charities in the Montgomery community. Not only do we want to be instrumental in helping food banks and shelters with our world famous mouthwatering Turkeys, sliced hams and delicious bacon during the holiday season. We also want to support children that are less fortunate during the holiday season. Every quarter, Butterball team members will be sponsoring company contests within our plant; this money will be collected all year and we will donate to a local charity of our choice at the end of the year.
