Electralloy/G.O. Carlson Plate held their annual customer/vendor appreciation dinner and outing on September 14th and 15th of this year. This event bringstogether all those in the “Electralloy family” for fun, fellowship and charitable giving. The charity that was chosen this year was the Mustard Seed Mission, which is a local organization. Thanks to all the participants that attended this year’s event, a total of $6,000 was raised.
Mustard Seed Mission is an organization that helps families in need that require repairs and ramp installations on their homes. In 2015, the Mustard Seed Mission repaired 36 homes, refurbished two houses and provided 71 families with goods and beds. This year the Mustard Seed Mission has been working on the renovation of a building in Franklin, PA to provide a shelter for homeless people in the area. This project will be completed by the middle of November 2016 and will provide shelter for so many people that are in need this winter.
“Despite today’s tough economy the event turnout was amazing. All these folks have big hearts and we are so appreciative they were able to attend this year’s dinner and outing,” stated Tracy Rudolph, President. “They are the reason we were able to raise such a nice donation for the Mission and we’re proud that these funds will help those in need in our community."
Since the Electralloy event was initiated in 2000, the charity raffle has raised $108,500 for local non-profit organizations.
