Schuman Cheese Employees Contribute Locally Around the Country

Schuman Cheese Employees Contribute Locally Around the Country

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Schuman Cheese and its employees are giving back this holiday season and building deep ties with communities throughout the country.

The cheesemaker and its employees prioritize annual holiday giving, according to a company release, and these acts of kindness are one way in which Schuman Cheese and its employees can put the company’s core values, including commitment to community, into practice.

Employees at the company’s headquarters in Fairfield and a nearby Woodbridge office collected more than $1,000 worth of toys to be donated to Toys for Tots.


In Turtle Lake, Wisconsin, Lake Country Dairy and its employees contributed nearly $1,400 to the community through donations to local school and civic groups. Additionally, the dairy supported a 50/50 raffle to support two local families in need.

Company employees in Elgin, Illinois have, for the past several months, been participating in a program that combines weight loss motivation with charitable giving. This unique program, punningly-titled the Spare Tire Reduction Program, resulted in 350 pounds of non-perishable food donations to local food banks, and employees lost more than 60 pounds in unwanted weight during the course of the program. Schuman Cheese matched the food donation, and the program was considered so successful that a new session has been planned for early next year.

Holiday giving is only one way in which the company gives back to local communities and builds lasting relationships between its customers, community, and its employees. Schuman Cheese and its employees, in addition to supporting various local scholastic and civic causes, provide support for S. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through its employee giving program and other initiatives. The company donates to community food banks, employee volunteer events, the Susan G. Komen North Jersey chapter, and the Junior Achievement student mentoring program.
