The University of Wisconsin-Parkside hosts Parkside Day 2020 presented by HARIBO of America

At HARIBO we believe everyone should have access to an affordable, quality education and the resources to make that possible. We’re committed to supporting organizations and institutions that provide educational and career opportunities like the University of Wisconsin-Parkside with scholarship programs, internship opportunities and campus revitalization efforts.

We’re a proud partner of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and were happy to help the students there celebrate Parkside Day 2020.

Parkside Day 2020 saw 479 donors raise $143,923 for multiple scholarships that will be awarded to in-need students. The day featured fun interactive events and ended with the Ranger Romp, a celebratory event to close out Parkside Day.

"This was a terrific opportunity to support one of neighbors in Pleasant Prairie as we begin to build our first-ever factory there," said Toni Hansen, HARIBO of America Human Resources Director. "The University of Wisconsin-Parkside is an incredible institution and we’re looking forward to continuing to invest in today’s talent and tomorrow’s workforce."

At HARIBO of America, our Associates are our greatest asset. It’s their impactful work, dedication and passion for our brand that helps us continue to inspire childlike happiness around the world through our sweet treats. We took the opportunity to thank our workforce around the U.S. for all they do during our National Employee Appreciation Day celebration.

HARIBO of America celebrated #NationalWatermelonDay with a new treat perfect for summertime: Watermelon Gummies. The Watermelon gummi is HARIBO’s first-ever triple-layered, marshmallow-textured gummi released in the U.S. The mix of traditional and foam gummi gives each Watermelon “wedge” a soft and sweet chew.
