Community Outreach Recap – Paraco Warms the Hearts of Those in Need During the Fall & Winter Seasons

February 13, 2023

Brookhaven Fire Dept. & Ladies Auxiliary, Brookhaven, NY – 3rd Annual Chinese Auction
Paraco was eager to donate patio heaters and barbecue tanks as silent auction items for this year’s fundraising event. A percentage of the proceeds will support the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which honors the sacrifice of firefighter Steven Siller, who lost his life saving others on September 11, 2001. The foundation builds mortgage-free smart homes for critically injured veterans and first responders.


Lisa Beth Gerstman Foundation, Garden City, NY – Annual Golf Classic
Paraco’s support of children in need continues with this foundation, whose mission is to send more children with special needs to partnering summer camps. Funds raised through the outing will allow them to enjoy the experience as their peers do by swimming, participating in arts and crafts, playing sports, and going on field trips. Our support will undoubtedly help make many children’s dreams come true─affording them the opportunity to have fun, make new friends and build self-confidence and self-esteem. A special thanks to Andy Mirchin, Jeff Palen, Joe Roggio, and Rachel Sniffen for representing Paraco at the dinner following the golf event.


Focus Church, Shirley, NY – Feed the Hope Food Collection Campaign
Our Long Island Team continued to show their community outreach support this holiday season by providing food to bless 900 families! Thanks again to our Long Island Team for always stepping up for a good cause!


Adopt a Family, Long Island, NY – Holiday Campaign
Kudos to the Paraco Inside Sales Team for adopting two little boys on Long Island for the holidays. More than $500 was raised to support these families experiencing difficult times, battling homelessness, and living in a shelter. A sincere thanks to all of you for your generosity and for making a difference in the lives of those in need.


Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program – 2022 Holiday Campaign
Donations were poured into the toy box displays at various Paraco locations to help make the season brighter for children in need. The toy boxes overflowed with fun, cuddly, and interactive toys for the children to enjoy this holiday season. We had record participation from Paraco employees this year, and your gifts helped ensure children had a toy to unwrap on Christmas morning. A heartfelt thank you to all Paraco employees for their warm hearts and generosity.

Paraco continued its support of the annual Toys for Tots campaign by donating toys to Life-Line Ministries in West Babylon, New York. Thanks again to our Bay Shore office for their generosity and support.


Heroes Foundation, Rosenhayn, NJ – Kickoff for the 2023 Campaign
Paraco supports the Heroes Foundation NJ’s mission to save lives! Our generous donation helped the organization meet its goals of purchasing and distributing over 115 Automated Electronic Defibrillators (AED’s) to local non-profit organizations. In addition, they provided over $25,000 in scholarships for students pursuing careers in healthcare and offered CPR/AED certification training to the community.
