Broaster Company Bands to Support Local Community Resource Center
Beloit, Wisconsin, USA (May 5, 2019) – As part of The Broaster Company’s goal to be a good steward of their community, along with the communities where their product is served, Broaster Company employees chose a local charitable organization to support; Caritas, Inc.
Caritas is a Latin word meaning Christian love of humankind. Caritas of Beloit, Wisconsin is a community resource center focused on sharing the necessities of life. 45 years ago, local ministers put out a calling to area churches and pastors to find a way to help those in need. The community action plan resulted in Caritas, Inc.
Caritas provides grocery items, clothing, personal hygiene and house cleaning products, diapers, formula and much more! They have created warm and humanizing ways to support the communities needs with a Food Pantry, Diaper Bank, Community Garden and Birthday Bags.
The Broaster Company encourages employees to suggest charities close to their heart and then team up to support those charities. Carnitas was nominated and then in the Broaster Quarterly Meeting, employees were given the opportunity to give back to those in need in their community. Donation boxes were located in both buildings with a most needed donation list. Just over 60 employees donated more than a trunk full of personal hygiene products, baby diapers, wipes as well as monetary support.
As Broaster continues to look for ways to grow their business, they too continue to look for ways to grow their communities.
