Prinsco responds with a focus on local aidJune 23, 2020: During these challenging times, Prinsco is striving to unify and positively impact its employees and home communities with an initiative called “One Prinsco. One Community.” The company manufactures drainage products at a local plant in Jesup, IA, along with six additional locations across the US.
This spring, Prinsco pledged to donate $10 for every truckload of pipe that left a Prinsco yard from April 18 through May 15, 2020. The funds will provide thousands of dollars of direct financial support to frontline food and healthcare relief organizations in Prinsco’s seven home communities. Each Prinsco location was asked to identify key relief organizations near them to receive the funds, which were distributed at the end of June. In Jesup, they chose the Northeast Iowa Food Bank and the Jesup Ambulance Association.
Northeast Iowa Food Bank is dedicated to get the Jesup community through tough situations. The Food Bank not only provides nutritious food and grocery products, they also offer hunger education programs to the community and those in need. “We feel honored to give back to the Northeast Iowa Food Bank and humbled to have our donation supply 8,000 meals for families in need,” shares Jeremy Larsen, Prinsco Plant Manager in Jesup, IA.
The Jesup Ambulance Association is dedicated to keeping the Jesup community safe. “We are thankful for the years of service the Jesup Ambulance Association has provided our community.” - Jeremy Larsen, Prinsco Plant Manager in Jesup, IA.
Through the “One Prinsco. One Community.” initiative, Prinsco also purchased and distributed gift cards from local restaurants for all 450 of their employees across the country. In conjunction, they organized a live streaming concert on YouTube and invited all employees, customers and community members to tune in for an evening of thanks and relaxation.
“Times are challenging and we are looking for ways to bring people together and say thank you. Our employees and customers are putting in some long hours directly supporting construction projects in agricultural and stormwater management, and we believe their work matters now more than ever,” explained Jeremy Duininck, Co-President of Prinsco. “We want to support them and the communities where they live and work.”
“One Prinsco. One Community.” is a component of an even broader effort by parent organization, Duininck Companies, to support hunger relief needs caused by COVID-19 on an international level. Duininck Companies will be making financial gifts to these Christian-based humanitarian organizations: Feed my Starving Children, International Care Ministries and Mission India.
