Peerless Food Equipment’s 2013 United Way campaign contribution is the highest it’s been in 3 years! With our parent company ITW’s match, Peerless is among the top employers in Shelby County supporting the efforts of the United Way.
In addition to the generous employee pledges, silent auctions are held, luncheons where all proceeds are donated to the United Way are planned throughout the year and employees volunteer their time and efforts to help several outreach programs.
In 2013, Peerless supported the following non-profit programs: New Choices, Clear Creek Farms and Samaritan Works. Peerless employees along with several local business’s donate time and material to fix, repair and update facilities so it’s newly painted, more energy-efficient and safer for the people who utilize these programs. Peerless is very proud of these employees and look forward to another success United Way campaign for the community.
Not only does Peerless Food Equipment make high quality food equipment – but Peerless Food Equipment is a great supporter of the United Way – and its agencies. On October 25, 2012, a small team from Peerless spent half a day at a local non-profit agency that needed some help.
This group of men, volunteered their time for half a day and also secured material donations from some other local companies so that they could fill in leaky door frames and window frames for a local non-profit agency. They worked steadily in the heat of that day and were able to successfully patch 7 windows and 2 doors in need of some attention. Additionally, these guys changed out an old chandelier for a new ceiling fan.
Peerless is dedicated to the Shelby County area in terms of being a positive employer in the area, and is also very committed to the local community – making Sidney, Ohio a better place to live, work and grow! If you’d like to see more photos fom the the day, please visit our FaceBook page!
