BioSafe Systems Participates in Foodshare’s Turkey and a Thirty Drive

Every year, BioSafe Systems participates in Foodshare’s Turkey and a Thirty drive to help provide traditional Thanksgiving meals and year-round support to local families in need.

“As a Connecticut based company, we are always looking for ways we can give back to our community,” says Jonah Dorsey, Marketing Coordinator for BioSafe. “Unfortunately, hunger is a reality for thousands of CT residents. By working with Foodshare, we believe we can help solve this issue”.

In the several years BioSafe Systems has participated in this event, the company has raised money and collected turkeys in a variety of ways. “Every year we have been trying to find new ways in which we can increase the amount of donations we collect,” Dorsey says. “We have organized social media campaigns, had company-wide donation contests and organized events.”

This year, BioSafe looked to generate more community involvement. In addition to the donations raised by its employees, the company looked to their neighbors at Founders Plaza for help. All in all, over $5,000 was raised and 27 turkeys were collected. Donations are still being collected through the holiday season on site.foodshare.org/biosafesystems.

“It’s easy to take for granted how lucky some of us are,” Tammy Raymond, Brand Manager for BioSafe Systems adds. “Hunger is a reality for many people in our community. It is important that those who are able give back. Any donation, no matter the amount, makes a real difference in someone’s life.”

For the past 36 years, Foodshare has been effective in their approach to tackling hunger. For every $50 generated, the nonprofit can provide 125 meals. Additionally, every $14 provides a turkey to a family during the holiday season.

BioSafe’s participation in a Turkey and Thirty has generated hundreds of turkeys and tens of thousands of dollars. Each year the company looks for new ways in which it can get more involved. “BioSafe Systems is in the business of creating value in the food chain,” Rob Larose, President and CEO of BioSafe Systems adds. “It is only fitting that we find a way to give back. We need to support those have supported us in years prior.”
