Sirois Tool continues its long-standing tradition of charitable gift-giving this year. Employees rally together to support those in need with their holiday party’s annual auction and raffle and second year contributing to the Pajama Program.
The Pajama Program was founded in 2001 to give children in group homes, shelters, and foster homes the gift of a bedtime story and warm pajamas. The danger season begins in October with the cold weather, making holiday giving an ideal time to help.
Because employee giving was so successful last year, the company participated again, collecting 72 pairs of pajamas and 46 books for the local chapter. This year’s contributions go to a school in Hartford whose students live below the poverty level.
In addition to the Pajama Program, employees’ donations, combined with Sirois Tool’s dollar-for-dollar match, added up to a generous $1730.00 to St. Vincent de Paul of Middletown and $1400 to the Wounded Warrior Project. The charities are selected based on their employees’ interest and the organization’s involvement in the community.
The company also gives their employees a Thanksgiving Turkey but many employees choose to have the money that would be used to purchase the turkey, given to charity instead. The company again matches that donation which adds an additional $700 to the St. Vincent de Paul contribution.
