Bridgeport Rescue Mission (BRM) recently named R.D. Scinto, Inc. as their Corporate Compassion in Action honoree for their 2015 Restore Hope Banquet.
According to the post in the Monroe Courier, BRM looks for corporations who are willing to put hands and feet to work to serve the hungry, homeless and addicted; that advocate publicly for the poor and downtrodden of Fairfield County; and that commit financial and material resources to make a significant impact on the lives of the poor.
“Bob and his company fully demonstrated all three of these exceptional characteristics last year,” said BRM Executive Director Terry Wilcox. “They orchestrated a hugely successful coat drive for the Mission’s Great ThanksGiving Project that touches the lives of 3,000 local families in Bridgeport and So. Norwalk. They recommended the Mission to benefit from the St. Anthony of Padua annual fundraiser, resulting in nearly $20,000 for the Mission’s Main Campus Kitchen Renovation Project. And they made a significant financial commitment toward the Mission’s Matching Challenge campaign, which helped inspire others to give generously raising a total of more than $200,000. The Mission is truly grateful for their dedication and partnership.”
