Prime Line Sponsors Bridgeport Rescue Mission's Great Thanksgiving Project
Prime Line, Bridgeport, Conn., sponsored Bridgeport Rescue Mission’s Great Thanksgiving Project, which provided turkeys, bags of Thanksgiving fixings and winter coats to more than 3,000 low income families in need in Fairfield County, Conn.
Distribution for the Thanksgiving project took place over six days, Nov. 16 to 22, at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport. Prime Line donated 5,000 bags, and several Prime Line employees were on site helping with distribution.
“This was the largest charitable event of its kind in Connecticut, and it was really special for Prime and its employees to be part of it,” said Prime Line's CEO Jeff Lederer.
Prime Line has supported the Bridgeport Rescue Mission since 2014 with ongoing donations of blankets, bags, hats and hot cocoa.
“We are grateful for caring companies, like Prime Line, who are committed to serving our community and ensuring that no need goes unmet this Thanksgiving,” said Terry Wilcox, Bridgeport Rescue Mission's executive director.
Prime Line and the Lederer family have established a tradition of supporting both industry and community causes, such as the Promotional Products Education Foundation, the Breast Cancer Alliance, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Susan’s Rock - Stand Strong Against Domestic Violence and others.
