Sirois Tool employees continue to be generous this holiday season. They support those in need with their holiday party’s annual auction and raffle and third 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. Because employee giving was so successful the last two years, the company participated again, collecting 62 pairs of pajamas and 32 books for the local chapter. The contributions go to a school in Hartford whose students live below the poverty level.
The raffle donations generated $1,575.00 for St. Vincent de Paul of Middletown’s Amazing Grace Food Pantry. 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. This provided an additional $375 for the St. Vincent de Paul contribution.
New this year, one of the company Engineers set up a donation box for the Enfield Food Pantry which the employees helped to fill. “I am very proud of the generous, caring nature of our employees. I happen to know that many of them make other contributions of money and time for other worthwhile programs that are not mentioned here.”, states Alan Ortner, President of Sirois Tool.
