Green Bay, WI (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
The season of giving is a wonderful time to reflect, count our blessings, and help make a positive impact on the lives of those less fortunate. In this spirit, FEECO International, Inc., a leader in OEM equipment, has again made a substantial donation of turkeys to the local pantry in Green Bay, WI - Paul’s Pantry.
FEECO’s annual donation, now entering its fourth year, provides a turkey to local families in need during the holiday season. The company donates a turkey in the name of each of its 100 employees. Last year, FEECO’s president invited local businesses to partake in this tradition, and this year, additional local companies have generously joined in this charitable event, providing a total of 189 families with the gift of a turkey for Christmas dinner.
“We’ve been very fortunate as a company the last few years, and we have our employees to thank for that. By supporting a generous community outreach program such as Paul’s Pantry, our company celebrates the true meaning of Christmas, while recognizing the individuals within our organization that make us successful,” stated Dan Madigan, President of FEECO.
Businesses who donated alongside FEECO this year include: Associated Bank, Security Insurance, and Metzler, Timm, Treleven, Pahl, Beck, S.C. In addition, several individual employees from FEECO International, Inc. and Encap LLC contributed to the donation.
Paul’s Pantry, founded in 1984 by the late Leo Frigo, is an emergency food pantry that cares for families of meager or no incomes in the Green Bay area. Its goal is to “provide families with enough food every week, for as long as needed, so that they may use their food dollars for shelter, utilities, and other necessities, and avoid becoming homeless.” The pantry operates without government funding, relying entirely on volunteers, food suppliers, and donors.
FEECO would like to thank all those who participated in the annual donation, and looks forward to continuing this tradition in the coming years, welcoming other area businesses to join them in making the holidays a little brighter for local families for years to come.
In addition to their donation of turkeys, FEECO and its employees are also participating in other holiday charity endeavors, including Toys for Tots, Coats for Kids, and canned good donations.
