Move For Hunger and FINCOR Construction Partner Up In The Fight Against Hunger Nationwide

LAUREL, Md. -- FINCOR Construction, a multi-family renovator operating along the east coast, and Move For Hunger, a national relief non-profit organization, have announced a new partnership that will fight hunger and reduce food waste nationwide. Recent reports say that nearly 8 million Americans have fallen into poverty since the summer. It's the fastest rise since tracking began 60 years ago, and food banks across the country are expecting a 60% increase in demand.

Move For Hunger was founded in 2009 by Adam Lowy, the son of a third-generation mover, when he noticed that people throw away a lot of perfectly good food when they move. Starting with his own family's moving company and building from there, Move For Hunger now has a network of over 1,000 moving companies, many of the world's leading relocation management companies, and more than 1,500 multi-family apartment communities, all helping to fight to end hunger by collecting food items and delivering them to local food banks in all 50 states and Canada.

To date, Move For Hunger's network has collected and delivered more than 20 million pounds of food - providing 17 million meals.

The partnership will enable FINCOR to support Move For Hunger's food rescue programs and encourage the multi-family industry clients they work with to integrate the Move For Hunger model into their standard operating processes for customers who are moving. It will also provide the opportunity to continue to expand the Move For Hunger network: a robust community of engaged individuals that want to make a difference in the lives of others and have the transportation resources available to create large-scale change.

The partnership with FINCOR along with their recent fundraiser will also help provide nearly 27,000 meals to those in need.

"FINCOR has been an amazing partner in the fight against hunger," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "FINCOR recognizes that the hunger crisis continues to affect this country at staggering rates. We're grateful for their continued support in helping us provide meals to those in need."

"There are people that need help now more than ever. People are facing issues through no fault of their own, and we have the opportunity and ability to help," said Michael C. Finn, President of FINCOR. "We felt Move for Hunger was the best fit for us to do the most good as we specialize in renovating apartments where residents have to clean out their kitchens before we start. We thought it would be a great addition to the community where residents can donate non-perishables while cleaning out their living spaces."

Through the support of partners like FINCOR Construction, Move For Hunger can continue to make a difference at a time when it's needed the most.

Chelsea Groton Bank and Foundation Together Gave Record $1 Million this Year

GROTON, Conn. -- This year, Chelsea Groton Bank and its Foundation provided more than $1 Million to non-profit organizations in our communities. The Foundation recently approved $405,820 in grants to 68 non-profit organizations from Connecticut and Rhode Island, which put the full year's giving total above the $1 Million mark for the first time ever.

Earlier this year, the Foundation swiftly responded to support emergency relief efforts as well as needs across all giving categories in the wake of the pandemic, making the unprecedented decision to double the usual amount of total funds granted in a calendar year.

Half of the Foundation's approved funding this fall went to organizations providing Health & Human Services, including immediate critical needs such as healthcare, food, clothing and shelter. A grant donation of $25,000 was provided to Lawrence & Memorial Hospital for urgent needs due to the pandemic, and grants of $15,000 each were given to Salvation Army New London for the Boys and Girls Club of New London and COVID-19 Food Pantry, Salvation Army Norwich for their emergency assistance program and St. Vincent de Paul Place for their food pantry.

The Foundation also granted $30,000 to the Garde Arts Center in New London, enabling them to receive an additional $15,000 through the CT Dept. of Economic and Community Development. In addition, the Bank gave over $80,000 in sponsorships and grants for local teachers to use in their own virtual or in-person classrooms for educational activities with students.

"Our organization's roots are in this community. We knew there was no time more important to figure out a way to help people than in this time of great need. We're fortunate to have a Foundation and a commitment to community giving that can have such a positive impact on organizations in desperate need of support," shared Michael Rauh, President and CEO of Chelsea Groton Bank, and President of the Chelsea Groton Foundation. "We are committed to doing whatever it takes to support the non-profits in our area who make the community the wonderful place it is."

"When faced with these unique times, the Chelsea Groton Foundation Board responded by temporarily adjusting guidelines in order to provide financial support to more organizations in need. We are proud to give to organizations that support basic human needs - hunger, homelessness and healthcare - as well as those that provide education, economic growth, arts and cultural experiences, and more, especially in this great time of need."

For a fourth consecutive year, the Foundation has also made a significant grant commitment - $50,000 in 2020 - to Norwich Community Development Corporation (NCDC) for Global City Norwich, in order to train entrepreneurs and create a thriving downtown environment that will ensure increased traffic in area businesses.

The Foundation typically reviews applications and awards grants two times per year. Organizations who support critical needs are invited to apply for additional funding this year if needed, through the application on the Bank's website,

Each year, Chelsea Groton Bank and the Chelsea Groton Foundation support more than 300 local organizations through monetary gifts, grants, sponsorships, scholarships and employee volunteerism. More information, including a list of all fall grant recipients, is available at

Current Builders Announces 15th Annual Holiday Fundraising Program Raises $39,000

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- Current Builders ( is proud to announce they raised $39,000 for local charities during their 15th Annual Holiday Fundraising Program. The Pompano Beach-based general contractor provided over $5,000 worth of gifts for Toys for Tots to distribute and delivered checks to esteemed nonprofits including Rebuilding Together Broward, Feeding South Florida, Kappa Foundation, Best Buddies and CASA. Current Builders established a foundation in 2005 to increase their community involvement, and to date they have donated almost $300,000 to benefit deserving nonprofit organizations.

"We are very grateful to our employees and our valued business partners who contributed to our holiday fundraising program," said Michael C. Taylor, CEO & President. "2020 was a difficult year for so many, but the nonprofits we support have the ability to change lives for the better. We are very proud of the accomplishments of these organizations, and we are honored to support their missions through this campaign."

When the Marines from Toys for Tots arrived at Current Builders they were greeted with box-loads of toys, games and dolls to delight children in the community. It took several mini-van trips for the nonprofit to clear all the gifts out of the construction company's lobby.

Rebuilding Broward Together has benefitted from a close relationship with Current Builders through the years as they have partnered on extensive projects refurbishing homes for local low- income residents and veterans. This holiday season, Robin Martin, the nonprofit's Executive Director visited Current Builders to pick up a $5,000 check to support the cause.

Best Buddies' Area Director Tricia Williams and State Ambassador Ryan Hoffman also came by to pick up a check for $5,000 to support their initiative which offers multiple programs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

In addition, Current Builders provided $2,500 checks to Feeding South Florida and the Kappa Foundation of Pompano Beach. CASA, a domestic violence center in Pinellas County also benefitted with a toy donation in the amount of $1,500. The remaining funds will be donated to the Dolphins Cancer Challenge, which will take place in April and raises funds for Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Current Builders is an award-winning general contractor, established in 1972 with average annual revenues in excess of $250 Million and specializes in multi-family residential projects, healthcare facilities, office/warehouse buildings, commercial distribution facilities, parking garages, interior build-outs, interior and exterior renovations, all included as turnkey projects inclusive of the construction of the buildings and related site work.

Fort Worth Company Donates ‘Made in America’ N95 Masks to Salvation Army

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Fort Worth-based company United States Mask is on a mission to make the holidays a little brighter and safer for community members who need it the most. At 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 22, the United States Mask team will donate more than a thousand N95 particulate respirators to the Salvation Army of North Texas. With the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, the company is making sure that Salvation Army volunteers and children and families in need have the best protection available.

The integrity of the product they are giving is of utmost importance to United States Mask co-founders John Bielamowicz and David Baillargeon. Their N95 respirator is certified by the CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. The product is also sourced and made exclusively in the United States, eliminating reliance on overseas supply chains. Using state-of-the-art technology and custom machinery, the N95 masks are part of the founders' commitment to bring manufacturing of personal protective equipment back to the U.S.

Built on the idea that masks should be made in America for Americans, Bielamowicz and Baillargeon started their company in April of 2020 when the pair saw that a limited supply of PPE was forcing healthcare personnel, first responders and front-line workers to reuse N95 respirators that had been imported from around the world. Finding the situation unacceptable, the business partners set out on a mission to ensure that individuals have access to N95s that are trustworthy and dependable.

"This is a difficult time for many people, and organizations like the Salvation Army are still continuing with their mission," said Baillargeon. "This donation is just a small way we can help to make sure these brave women and men are able to stay safe during this holiday season."

Purchasing options for United States Mask's N95 particulate respirators are available in quantities suitable for both small and large organizations. For more information or to place an order, visit

Local Non-Profit Gets Green Energy with Help from An Innovative Philanthropic Investment

WATERTOWN, Mass. -- Watertown Boys & Girls Club, a local non-profit, has partnered with Rise Up Solar, a philanthropic solar investment firm, to turn rising energy costs into an opportunity to go green and save big with an installation by SunBug Solar, an energy consulting and installation provider in Massachusetts.

After some renovations to the facilities in 2016, the Watertown Boys & Girls Club's utility bills skyrocketed. Renee Gaudette, Watertown BGC's executive director, recognized that this extra cost took money away from the kids they serve. The organization had already been investigating a solar solution, but years of searching ended due to difficulty with the roof, some lofty trees, and a steep initial cost to invest.

Eventually, the Watertown BGC contacted SunBug Solar, a leading solar installer company for small business and nonprofit organizations in the Commonwealth. Fortunately, they knew a business designed for the challenge.

Peter Glick had worked with SunBug years prior for an installation on his own home in Cambridge. He was pleasantly surprised to learn that with available incentives his payback was only six years, and his rate of return was more appealing than what he could find in the financial markets. He mused how this might work for nonprofits.

Without access to significant capital or tax breaks offered to for-profit businesses, nonprofits are at a substantial disadvantage when it comes to solar. Glick set out to find a solution to this problem and came up with a business model that benefits investors, non-profits, and the installers and other vendors involved. He named his business Rise Up Solar.

Glick's early efforts to find organizations willing to participate were less than encouraging. He tried with 10 organizations he knew, but educating nonprofits on the value proposition was much harder than he'd anticipated. The organizations he approached were highly risk-averse, with a range of concerns involving the technology, the potential impact to their roof, fear of hidden costs and snow build-up, to name a few. When he reconnected with SunBug Solar, a leader among installers serving nonprofit organizations, they briefed him on the Watertown BGC project.

"All of the obstacles seemed to melt away," said Gaudette. "The initial costs were so prohibitive, but the agreement with Rise Up opened up doors."

The Watertown BGC signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Rise Up, and Rise up then contracted with SunBug to build the system - a 45kW, 120-panel ballasted solar array which sits on the BGC's flat membrane roof and requires no roof penetrations.

Rise Up will purchase a solar array on behalf of a nonprofit, and will sell the power to the organization at a substantial discount from their current rate - or simply pay the nonprofit to lease their roof space. Rise Up takes the tax credits and incentives, and will own the system until it has generated a modest return. It then gifts the system back to the nonprofit, which receives all financial benefit for the remainder of the solar system's life, which can easily be 20 years or more.

For the next 8-10 years, the Watertown BGC will save money by purchasing power from the array at a discounted rate. Once Rise Up has recouped its investment with a modest return, the system will be gifted to the BGC, which will then enjoy continued incentive payments for another decade and free electricity for another two decades or more. "All in all, it's a compelling win-win," says Glick, "the nonprofit gets solar and all of its benefits, while Rise Up restores its capital so it can approach other nonprofits with a similar offer."

The solar solution is a natural fit for the Watertown BGC. "We try to instill a sense of stewardship in the environment," explained Gaudette. Monitoring the power production serves not only as a financial and problem-solving talking point with the children, but there's also potential to build out a science curriculum centered around the project.

"You can't look at the numbers without reacting positively. We're so impressed with Mr. Glick and his philanthropy," said Gaudette. "He's come up with a very smart, long term solution to the needs of non-profit organizations."

About Watertown Boys and Girls Club:

The mission of the WBGC is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need their services most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The Club serves approximately 1,000 youth members throughout the year, and also provides activities and services to an additional 1,400 kids through cooperative programs with the Watertown Recreation Department, the Watertown Family Network, and other similar organizations.

About Rise Up Solar:

Rise Up Solar enables community-focused nonprofits to harness all of the environmental and economic benefits of solar power. Since solar tax incentives are unavailable to nonprofit organizations, Rise Up Solar bridges the gap. The firm uses a for-profit model with a non-profit mission, channeling the vast majority of solar's financial benefit to groups that need it most. Further details are available at

About SunBug Solar:

SunBug Solar is a solar energy consulting and installation company based in Arlington and Westfield, MA. Founded in 2009 and a Certified B Corporation since 2018, SunBug has installed over two thousand solar systems across Massachusetts, from Great Barrington to Cape Cod. SunBug develops, designs, and installs all types of solar systems including residential and commercial rooftops, carports, and ground-mounts. Learn more:
