Community OutreachCommunity outreach efforts help Loos and Company make a difference in our local area, and beyond. This activity includes contributing financial donations directly to organizations in need. An example of this is our activity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the course of the pandemic, Loos and Company prioritized employee health and safety while also giving back to the community during financially difficult times. We helped our Pomfret community by setting aside $50 for every COVID-19 vaccinated employee to donate to local organizations. These donations have gone to various groups such as charities, food banks, fundraisers, senior centers, and veteran-run organizations. Read some of our press releases about these activities below.
“We’re working hard to be caring and compassionate members of the community,”

Loos & Co. Gathers Food Donations
Pomfret, CT, December 1, 2021 — Loos & Company, Inc. is asking for local residents’ help to fill the shelves of the Pomfret Community Market in a food collection event this weekend.
Employees at Pomfret’s Loos & Co. will be collecting donations at the food pantry on Saturday morning.
Local residents, business owners and community members are invited to drop off goods between 9 and 11 a.m.
The Pomfret Food Community is located in the Pomfret Community Center at 207 Mashamoquet Road in Pomfret.
According to the community market website, the pantry is always in need of cereal, soups, pasta, pasta sauce, canned meat, peanut butter and personal hygiene items.
The market includes both a refrigeration cooler and freezer to accept fresh produce and frozen foods.
“We’re hopeful that our friends and neighbors can help stock the shelves for people in need,” said Director of Corporate Marketing Robert Davis. “Everyone deserves a seat at the table and access to fresh, nutritious and delicious food.”
The market, which is organized by the Thompson Ecumenical Empowerment Group, is open the first Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the third Thursday of the month from 1 to 3 p.m.
All TEEG markets, including the TEEG Community Market in North Grosvenordale and the TEEG Mobile Market in Woodstock, operate on a client-choice model, which allows for individuals and families to make their own selections based on their needs and wants.
