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 accessagency.org.

Loos & Co., headquartered at 16B Mashamoquet Road in Pomfret Center, is the leader in the wire and cable industry. More information about Loos is available at loosco.com.
