Every year the employees of Roto Frank of America, based in Chester, select a charity to support. This year we are happy to announce they chose The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries.
So far they have held a Pancake Breakfast, a Bake Sale, and a Taco Lunch/Food Drive, where food donations served as admissions. Upcoming events include 50-50 raffles, food drive competitions, and other breakfast/lunch sales. Employees may also give contributions via payroll deductions. Campaign progress is tracked on a special "soup ladle thermometer", updated monthly and displayed in the employee cafeteria. The company also designs an annual t-shirt for every employee, who are encouraged to wear them on Friday for "Charity T-Shirt Day". All their efforts seem to be working! To date, the campaign has raised more than $1,000 and 100 pounds of non-perishable food, with many months yet to go.
At the end of December, the Charitable Committee will present SSKP with a check for all the financial donations collected during the year. Non-perishable food donations are brought to SSKP food pantries continuously throughout the year.
"We are so grateful to all the employees of Roto Frank for supporting The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries," said Patty Dowling, Executive Director. "Their year-long effort is an inspiration, and shows their caring and commitment to helping others in need."
