Prinsco Responds to COVID-19 With a Focus on Local Aid
June 23, 2020
During these challenging times, Prinsco is striving to unify and positively impact its employees and home communities with an initiative called “One Prinsco. One Community.” The company manufactures drainage products at seven locations across the US.
This spring, Prinsco pledged to donate $10 for every truckload of pipe that left a Prinsco yard from April 18th through May 15th of 2020. The funds will provide thousands of dollars of direct financial support to frontline food and healthcare relief organizations in Prinsco’s seven home communities. Each Prinsco location was asked to identify key relief organizations near them to receive the funds, which were distributed by the end of June.
The following is a list of the receiving organizations:
Harrison County Food Pantry (Bethany, MO)
NTA EMS Rescue (Bethany, MO)
Beresford Community Food Cupboard (Beresford, SD)
Beresford Volunteer Fire Department (Beresford, SD)
Illinois Prairie Community Foundation (Chatsworth, IL)
Chatsworth Volunteer Fire Protection District (Chatsworth, IL)
Emergency Food Pantry (Fargo, ND)
Harwood Volunteer Fire & Rescue (Fargo, ND)
Bulldog Pantry (Fresno, CA)
Northeast Iowa Food Bank (Jesup, IA)
Jesup Ambulance Association (Jesup, IA)
Kandiyohi County Food Shelf (Prinsburg, MN)
Prinsburg Volunteer Fire Department (Prinsburg, MN)
Through the “One Prinsco. One Community.” initiative, Prinsco also purchased and distributed gift cards from local restaurants for all 450 of their employees across the country. In conjunction, they organized a live streaming concert on YouTube and invited all employees, customers and community members to tune in for an evening of thanks and relaxation.
“Times are challenging and we are looking for ways to bring people together and say thank you. Our employees and customers are putting in some long hours directly supporting construction projects in agricultural and stormwater management, and we believe their work matters now more than ever,” explained Jeremy Duininck, Co-President of Prinsco. “We want to support them and the communities where they live and work.”
“One Prinsco. One Community” is a component of an even broader effort by parent organization, Duininck Companies, to support hunger relief needs caused by COVID-19 on an international level. Duininck Companies will be making financial gifts to these Christian-based humanitarian organizations: Feed my Starving Children, International Care Ministries and Mission India.
