Prime Line Sponsors Bridgeport Rescue Mission’s Great Thanksgiving Project
Supplier Prime Line (PPAI 112744) 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 Fairfield County.
Distribution for the Thanksgiving project took place November 16-22 at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where Prime is headquartered. Prime donated 5,000 bags and several Prime employees were on-site helping with distribution. Prime Line has supported the Bridgeport Rescue Mission since 2014 with ongoing donations of blankets, bags, hats and hot cocoa.
“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,” says Prime Line CEO Jeff Lederer.
Bridgeport Rescue Mission Executive Director Terry Wilcox adds, “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.”
Prime 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.
Bridgeport Rescue Mission is a faith-based organization that assists hungry, homeless and addicted people throughout coastal Fairfield County. It offers year-long educational programs, biblical counseling and case management. The mission is funded by compassionate individuals, churches, businesses and organizations.
