At APM Hexseal, we believe in taking care of one another. At times like these, it’s important to remember that we’re all in this together, and together is how we will get through this pandemic. To that end, we’re doing all that we can to help the citizens of our community. Doing our part to help those in need has always been one of the core values of our APM Hexseal family.
Our Recent Community Efforts
The APM Hexseal team has been pleased to help out a number of local organizations in recent months. Here are the highlights:
A Food Pantry in Englewood, New Jersey
During the pandemic, a food pantry in Englewood, NJ went from helping 400 families weekly to about 1,000 families per week. Our employees set to the task of hosting a Thanksgiving drive to gather food and monetary donations. At the conclusion of the drive, we had collected an entire pallet of food and, with APM Hexseal matching all monetary donations, we gave the food pantry $2,500 in cash and supermarket gift cards.
When APM Hexseal learned that local school districts were having trouble obtaining the personal protective equipment and supplies they needed to keep students and faculty safe, we knew we had to find a way to make it safer for students and teachers to be in the classroom. We sourced, purchased, and donated masks, sanitizing wipes, and hand sanitizer to three underfunded New Jersey school districts in Mount Olive, Newark, and Paterson.
Senior Residence at St. Peter the Apostle
Senior citizens comprise one of the highest risk groups for COVID-19. In order to help safeguard this segment of the population, most senior residences have tight restrictions on allowing in person visits with family and loved ones. This has made the pandemic especially hard on our aging population – both physically and mentally. In order to help facilitate much needed visitations with their loved ones, we donated PPE and supplies to the St. Peter the Apostle Senior Residence in River Edge, New Jersey, so that they can spend time with their friends and family, safely.
