Royce® Leather Donates $62,000 in Executive Accessories to United Way
Royce Leather donated $62,000 in leather goods and accessories today to support the many programs of United Way of Hudson County (UWHC), in particular job training and professional development.
“I am definitely inspired by my father’s ardent commitment to the people and economy of Hudson County,” Billy Bauer, marketing director, said. “By providing leather wallets, writing portfolios, binders, and briefcases we hope to enhance a person’s ability to secure a better job by sustaining a more professional lifestyle.”
Royce Leather is in fact doubling down on its local commitment. In 2013, the company donated over $30,000 in leather goods to celebrate its 30th year of manufacturing in Hudson County and its 40th year in business.
“The entire Bauer family places service above self,” declared Dan Altilio, president of UWHC. “Royce Leather is a superb corporate partner, and we value their dedication to the community, especially as they work to support people entering the job market. We are grateful for generous partners who strongly believe in catalyzing positive change by supporting our mission."
According to Harold, his strong call to action begins with family. “We are always here for each other, and we want to be here for our neighbors in Hudson County as well. Communities prosper most when students graduate from school prepared for work, families achieve financial stability, and everyone leads healthy lives.”
Billy echoed his father’s sentiments stating “Doing good makes it easier to get out of bed in the morning. We are all in this together.”
