One of the things that Cresswood, an American made industrial shredder manufacturer, prides itself on is our servant mentality.

Our company prioritizes the greater good for our community and our employees. One of the ways that we like to serve our community is through our Cresswood Cares Program.

Once a month, we take turns asking different departments if there is a local charity that they would like us to donate to on behalf of the company.

So far in Quarter 1, we’ve extended our support to the following organizations or local fundraisers, while proudly continuing our dedication to crafting American Made Industrial Shredders.

Supporting Our Furry Friends by Giving Back to Tails Humane Society

In January, the Machine Shop chose to donate to Tails Humane Society which is a local Animal Shelter in DeKalb County. Tails is an organization that is close to our hearts because many of our employees have rescued their pets from Tails or have rescued strays in the community. We are firm believers that pets are just as much a part of your family as the other members in your household.

Cresswood Engineers Support Mental Health Through Project Seth

In February, the Engineering Department chose to donate to Project Seth. Project Seth is committed to bringing awareness of suicide, specifically in youth and young adults. We are big advocates of Mental Health here at Cresswood and this organization is very important to us because a handful of our employees have experienced family or friends with mental health struggles. It is important for people to realize that they are not alone.

A Community Comes Together in Support by Honoring Deputy Christina Musil

For March and April, the Fabrication Shop and Field Service Teams decided to partner up and chose to donate to a local fallen DeKalb County Deputy’s family.

DeKalb County Deputy Christina Musil was involved in a tragic accident while she was on duty and lost her life. The 35-year-old was a five-year sheriff’s office veteran and served in the Army National Guard as a military police officer for four years, including a tour in Afghanistan in 2008-2009. She left behind 3 young children and we felt the need to help those children out with our March and April donations.

Cresswood’s Commitment to Service and Pediatric Cancer Research

Our President, Ryan Butzman, also stepped up and participated in “Just Shave It” in support of Cal’s Angels, where every dollar raised went towards funding pediatric cancer research. Members of the community were able to join Team Cal and sign up to shave Ryan’s head! Did you know only 4% of federal funding for cancer research is allocated to pediatrics? I would like you to join me in this fight for these children and their families to raise awareness and help fund pediatric cancer research.

As we continue to uplift our communities through the Cresswood Cares program in 2024, our dedication to service remains unwavering. At Cresswood, being an American made industrial shredder manufacturer isn’t just about crafting quality equipment; it’s about embodying a spirit of generosity and compassion. Through our monthly donations and active involvement in local initiatives, we strive to make a meaningful impact on causes close to our hearts. Join us in our mission to empower and support those in need, as together, we shape a brighter future for all.
