It is always gratifying to see corporations who remember their roots and care for the communities that helped make them what they are.  Utz Quality Foods, maker of Utz Potato Chips, is celebrating their 90th anniversary and gave away $90,000 to nine Hanover organizations as a way to pay it forward in their community.

Tuesday afternoon, the representatives of the nine organizations gathered at Utz headquarters in Hanover to receive their checks and accept thanks from the Utz family for helping make their business the success it is today.  Utz is the largest independently owned and family owned snack manufacturer in the country.

The following organizations each received $10,000:

Hanover Area Family YMCA, the YWCA of Hanover, Adams-Hanover Counseling Services, the Visiting Nurse Association of Hanover and Spring Grove, UCP of South Central Pennsylvania, “Sweet Charities” cancer patient fund, Saint Matthew Lutheran Church organ fund, the Hanover Soccer Club and the Hanover Area Council of Churches.

Two Roy’s Rants thumbs up to Utz Quality Foods of Hanover for being a good corporate citizen.
