It's the season for Giving!

VP Supply Corp has long since been known for their quality work. Not only are they known for their professional service and products, but they are also known throughout their community for the numerous charities that they support. If you are unfamiliar with the good deeds that VP Supply Corp is doing in and around their community, we want to share a little more about those works, including the way they make a major impact on those in need during the holiday season.

Since Marv Miller and Elliot Curwin bought VP Supply Corp in 1965, they never once forgot about their humble beginnings. Helping others and community service has been a high priority for VP Supply since day one. For example, they started a long-standing tradition to provide Thanksgiving turkeys to employees and providing meals to employees and other community members that might not otherwise have a Thanksgiving meal. Marv and Elliot were always finding ways to help those in need, especially their employees, and that tradition lives on today.

As they do every year, the leader of VP Supply Corp has continued in the standard of providing holiday cheer to the community, except this year they decided to do things a little differently. Instead of the usual turkey giveaway that benefited only the employees and customers of VP Supply, they decided to start a partnership with Foodlink. Foodlink is a local charity that strives to provide upwards of 60,000 meals to families in need during the entire holiday season.

The executives at VP Supply Corp toured the Foodlink facility and saw firsthand the enormous good they do for those in need and immediately knew that they should start a partnership. So the funds that typically go towards their annual turkey giveaway will be put towards a donation to Foodlink in the hopes of reaching, even more, families in need this year. Some employees of VP Supply volunteered their time to the food bank after presenting them with a check for $20,000 to be put towards this year’s efforts in feeding those in need.

Not only is VP Supply supporting this local charity in a big way each holiday season, they also offer support to other charities in the locations of their other stores. The following charities are being supported by VP Supply: Central New York Food Bank, Buffalo City Mission Charity and Disabled American Veterans in Buffalo, Erie City Mission, Samaritan Center of Syracuse, Calvary Food Pantry in Auburn, City Mission of Schenectady, Foodbank of the Southern Tier in the Vestal area, Open Door Mission of Glens Falls and Regional Food Bank in Albany.

VP Supply has been an upstanding company in their communities for over 50 years, and there is a good reason for that. Their founders Marv and Elliot understood that their business was more than just a business. Their love and support for community and helping others will continue to be at the forefront of how VP Supply Corp does business, which will continue to merit success for their business and a positive relationship with their community.
