Loos & Co. Donates $2,500 to Local Organizations
Pomfret, CT, June 15, 2021— In less than a month, Loos & Company has proudly donated $2,500 to community organizations throughout eastern Connecticut.
This week, Loos & Company, in Pomfret, proudly presented a $500 check to aid the Danielson United Methodist Church Food Pantry, bringing the total amount of donations made through the employee vaccination donation fund to $2,500.
The donations are powered by Loos & Co. employees choosing to receive a coronavirus vaccination.
Once an employee receives their vaccine, a $50 contribution is made to the general donation fund.
Employees were asked to provide recommendations for local organizations they support to receive donations.
Loos Buyer Debra Thurlow said she has attended services at the church for over 30 years.
“I’m really glad Loos is helping a local church in need by donating,” Thurlow said. “That’s really nice. The church does so much good for the community.”
Donations were also recently given to the Pomfret Community/Senior Center, the Danielson Veterans Coffeehouse, the Putnam Daily Bread Food Pantry and the Norwich St. Vincent de Paul Place.
The Danielson United Methodist Church Food Pantry offers free hot meals every Wednesday through the Community Kitchens of Northeastern Connecticut program to local folks in need.
Because of COVID-19, they’ve operated outdoors through the entire last year, offering food, toilet paper, sleeping bags, and whatever else homeless or low-income individuals may need.
Deacon and Food Pantry Board Member Barbara Schreier said the donation will be added to the fuel assistance fund.
“The community has been very generous,” Schreier said. “Our donors know that people are out of work, struggling, and still need to eat. And they know they need to help.”
Loos Director of Corporate Marketing Robert Davis, Human Resources Manager Terri Falcone and Debra Thurlow presented Schreier and fellow pantry board member Connie Viveiros with a check on Tuesday.
