Loos & Co., Inc Donates $500 to Daily Bread Food Pantry
Loos Employees Pay It Forward
Pomfret, CT, June 8, 2021— In less than three weeks, Loos & Company has generously donated to three eastern Connecticut organizations from its employee vaccination donation fund.
This week, Loos & Company proudly presented a $500 check to support the mission of the Daily Bread Food Pantry. The food pantry is organized through the Interfaith Human Services of Putnam group.
This is the third donation in as many weeks from Loos & Co. to local charities.
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.
Loos Director of Corporate Marketing Robert Davis said employees were asked to provide suggestions as to where the funds should be donated.
Donations were also given to the Pomfret Community/Senior Center and the Danielson Veterans Coffeehouse.
“We’re working hard to be caring and compassionate members of the community,” said Loos Director of Manufacturing Jason Kumnick.
IHSP is an all-volunteer non-profit charity that oversees the food pantry, the NU2U Clothing Closet, and the Diaper Bank of Northeastern Connecticut. It also provides fuel/heating assistance, rental assistance and homelessness support.
Kumnick and Davis presented IHSP board president Karen Osbrey with a check Monday.
“Donations like these mean a lot to us,” Osbrey said. “Because of our resources, we have great spending power. A $500 donation can buy us about $1,500 in food.”
Osbrey said the food pantry serves 300 families in the Pomfret, Putnam, Woodstock and Eastford area.
