New England FCSI Chapter Donates $15,000 To Veterans Center

Good works live on as annual events for the New England Chapter of Foodservice Consultants Society Int’l. Last month, the chapter celebrated its 11th annual Holiday Social, donating $15,000 to the foodservice program at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans. The event is one of two large charity fundraisers organized by the FCSI chapter.

More than 100 industry colleagues and guests gathered in Boston to see Mark Gough, the center’s director of corporation and foundation relations, accept the donation. The center provides programs and services enabling success and independent living and offers basic necessities, such as shelter and food; it served 133,248 meals last year alone. “We know the importance of foodservice operations, which is why we know that the benefits of this donation will reach far beyond the kitchen,” said Edward Arons, chairman of the chapter and senior associate at Colburn & Guyette, a Rockland, Mass., foodservice design firm.

The donation was made possible through the support of 27 sponsors, including 11 firms at the top gold level of contribution: American Panel, C.R. Peterson, Continental Refrigeration, Dave Swain Associates, E3/4Top, Halton, Hatch-Jennings, Hobart/Traulsen/Vulcan, The Montague Group, True Food Service Equipment and The Viola Group.

Three silver-level sponsors—BSI, EarthStone Ovens and Unified Brands—and 13 bronze-level sponsors—Air Solutions & Balancing, Alto-Shaam, Crowley Marketing, Custom Metals of Massachusetts, Interior Systems, Kittredge Foodservice Equipment, Marlo Manufacturing, Multiteria, Panasonic, Perlick, Scotsman, T&S Brass and Wyllie Marketing—also contributed to the goal. The New England Chapter of FCSI also made a sizeable contribution.
