Introducing PSCO Kieffer Cares, focused year-round efforts to give back to the community
November 13th is World Kindness Day. As the name suggests, it is a day dedicated to promoting kindness and the positive power generated by acts of kindness. Many ideas flooded social media on ways to spread kindness to inspire others. Our team at PSCO Kieffer planned to create a company-wide effort inspired by World Kindness Day to support a local outreach group, BabyCare.
BabyCare was started in 2005 and has helped over 700 families, reaching one in three families struggling with baby supplies in the Sheboygan area. They are part of the National Diaper Bank, 1 of 8 in Wisconsin, helping to provide diapers to babies in need. Currently, BabyCare is giving 12,000 diapers per month to families in Sheboygan County.
While the Kieffer name has been a recognized name in the sign industry for over 60 years in Sheboygan, PSCO Kieffer launched this year. Philadelphia Sign Company purchased the sign manufacturing facility in April 2022, adding Sheboygan to their 6th manufacturing location as part of the PSCO Global Group, a family-owned operation. The leadership team in Sheboygan worked to launch PSCO Kieffer Cares, an initiative that focuses on year-round efforts to give back to the community.
Michelle Robinson, Business Support Specialist with PSCO Kieffer, stated, “PSCO Kieffer Cares has been an initiative we have been working towards launching for several months. World Kindness Day aligned with our launch planning, so it was great to kick off our program and support our local community. Our goal with PSCO Kieffer Cares is to promote kindness and support those in need in our communities.”
The company put a donation box in their manufacturing facility for employees to drop off donations throughout the last few weeks. Members of the PSCO Kieffer team brought the donated items to BabyCare this week. Every little bit helps, and the impact PSCO Kieffer made is evident to help local families that count on this organization in their time of need.
For those local in the Sheboygan area, items of the ongoing need for BabyCare include baby food, formula, diapers, books, baby toys, onesies, clothing (sizes 0-6 months), baby blankets, and miscellaneous baby supplies. Find out more details, including drop-off times, by visiting BabyCare online.
