We’re forty-some days away from Christmas, and many NPPD employees are getting their Christmas shopping done thanks to a unique partnership with GROW Nebraska®.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, plans for NPPD’s 50th-anniversary celebrations and holiday parties were put on hold. Wanting to find a way to still celebrate, a team began researching creative ways bring merriment and support Nebraska businesses while still maintaining social distancing.
By partnering with GROW Nebraska, NPPD teammates can choose from an assortment of products made by entrepreneurs across the state to create a custom gift box. Products such as popcorn, bath and body products, books, seasonings and more are available.
Rick Nelsen, NPPD Senior Economic Development Consultant, sits on the board of the GROW Nebraska® Foundation. “This is a great way to showcase some of the unique products made in our state while also giving NPPD teammates a token of appreciation for their hard work during this challenging year,” he said.
