CCL Label is a company with rich culture and history. Over the years, CCL has grown to be the leader in the labeling and packaging industry. CCL Label in Hightstown and their employees are dedicated to giving back to the community and have been for many years. Due to the hard work CCL Hightstown, was recently recognized as the Shining Star at the town’s “Better Beginnings Mayor’s Shining Star Gala”. The Better Beginnings is a non-profit organization that has been helping families in West Windsor and Hightstown since 1967. Their mission is to help provide for children who have working parents and guide them to be self-reliant.
CCL Hightstown understood their responsibilities as a member of the community and have been dedicating their time and effort to support the members of Hightstown. Over the years, CCL had helped to fund the construction of the nature walk/boardwalk through the wetlands at Rocky Brook Park. Hightstown employees worked on the cleanup of the stream and rototilled the wildflower and butterfly gardens, planting seeds for the next Spring Bloom. Employees also listened and stepped forward when the people of Hightstown expressed a safety issued for children, in particular the lack of fencing. Children often venture into the streets and the playground equipment was sub-par. CCL took charge of the Community Improvement Project, which resulted them receiving the CCL Industries Environment Awareness Award from CCL Corporate. This project included installing fences along the length of the Park Avenue side of the park, along with adding large garden planters filled with perennial planting on each end of the fence. CCL Hightstown is also a proud sponsor of the Hometown Harvest Fair. They annually participate in various community food drives including the Rise Thanksgiving Drive, helping to serve over 350 local families each year. CCL employees help to sponsor Holiday Gifts to several of the estimated 900 children on Rise’s “Wish List” each holiday season. CCL also supports their local Fire Department, Police Department, Local Athletic groups, and Hightstown High School. The participation and support CCL gives to the Hightstown community is endless and will continue to grow.
