An Elma company delivered more than 2,000 pounds of nut milk products to Roswell Park Comprehensive Care Center Tuesday, the beginning of its initiative to help out in the Covid-19 pandemic crisis.
Henry Schwartz, the owner of Elmhurst 1925, a subsidiary of Steuben Foods, is "really passionate about helping out health care workers," said Michael Nolan, a spokesman for the company.
Staff loaded a pallet filled with cartons of almond, hazelnut and cashew milk onto the pickup owned by plant manager Randy Weatherbee, who drove it to Roswell Park Tuesday afternoon. It was just the start, according to Nolan.
The company also is inviting other Western New York companies to join in helping to “pay it forward” to health care workers by donating what they can.
