ROCKTON (WIFR) – Two area organizations are teaming up to provide people with disabilities some warmth in the winter time.
Chemtool out of Rockton is donating hats and gloves to disabled people at Bridgeway in Loves Park. The company’s Chemtool Cares program gathered clothing and donations from employees and $2,000 from its foundation funds to help out Bridgeway. One employee even donated 100 scarves and five pairs of gloves.
“Chemtool is a long standing customer of ours that has time after time supported us. So, it just speaks volumes for what they have helped us do and the opportunity they have given us,” said Bridgeway President Jayme Collins.
The company also helped pay for scarves by raffling off employee parking spots for preferred parking in December.
