Community Outreach

Community 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.

Loos & Co., Inc. Donates $500 to Access Community Action Agency

Pomfret, CT, August 8, 2022— Loos & Co., Inc. proudly presented a $500 check to Access Community Action Agency.

Access provides resources to individuals across Windham and Tolland counties who struggle to secure consistent meals, safe housing, and reliable employment.

With demand for these services increasing, Access relies on contributions from community partners like Loos & Company to help stock their mobile food van and on-site pantries in Willimantic and Danielson.

The organization operates “shopper’s pantries” that allow families to choose their own goods based on need and preference.

The selection includes both non-perishable and perishable items such as meat and produce, in addition to sanitary products, soap, and diapers.

“Monetary donations are great because they allow us to fill gaps in our needs,” said Kathleen Krider, Senior Director – Community Engagement and Resource Management.

This money is often used to procure items such as detergent, cleaning supplies, and other goods not covered by programs like WIC or SNAP.

Krider added, “when companies donate, it means we get to form partnerships, which creates exposure in the community. The more people know about our services, the more people we can help.”

Each month, Loos gifts $500 to a different local organization. Access is now the fifth pantry across eastern Connecticut to receive one of their donations.

“We don’t just want to send a check in the mail. We always like to come out and meet the people who run these facilities,” commented Anne Nichols, Marketing Coordinator for Loos & Company.

She emphasized, “this gives us the opportunity to ask questions, see the operation in action, and learn how we can make a lasting impact.”

Donations are always needed at 1315 Main Street, Willimantic, and 231 Broad Street, Danielson. More information is available about Access Community Action Agency at
