As part of Nystrom’s corporate responsibility, every December Nystrom participates in an annual Holiday Drive. This year, Nystrom collected three barrels of gifts totaling 121 pounds. These gifts were delivered to Community Emergency Assistance Programs (CEAP) for distribution to 600 families and 1,800 children.
