SPIROL International Corporation, a global manufacturer headquartered in Danielson, Connecticut, has stepped forward for a second consecutive year to support the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH), by raising over $9,300 for the Fund.
In addition to designating the company’s fiscal year 2020 employee giving campaign to the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of DKH, SPIROL’s fundraising team raised money by hosting various philanthropic initiatives throughout the year.
Despite the cancellation of DKH’s annual NECT Cancer Fund Walk & Race due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SPIROL supported the hard work of its employees by still contributing $5,000 which was earmarked for the event.
“It is a great testimony of strong support when local businesses choose Day Kimball to be the beneficiary of their annual fundraising,” said Kyle Kramer, Chief Executive Officer, Day Kimball Healthcare. “Our ability to provide vital resources to our patients in need, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, is in large part due to the generous support of local businesses like SPIROL. We extend heartfelt gratitude for the outpouring of support for local cancer patients shown by the generosity of SPIROL and its employees.”
“The support of our local business community, despite the hardships this year has brought, continues to astound us,” said Kristen Willis, Director of Development, Day Kimball Healthcare. “In the face of this global pandemic, SPIROL maintained their goal of raising money for this important cause and generating valuable funds for the NECT Cancer Fund, which plays such a critical role in our community. This donation will help us continue to build upon a long legacy of providing financial assistance to individuals battling cancer in the Northeast Connecticut community.”
"SPIROL and its fund raising team are happy to have continued our partnership throughout the past year with Day Kimball Hospital and the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund,” said Matt Bartlett, Manufacturing Manager, SPIROL International. “Despite challenges associated with the pandemic we are proud to say that our community continues to step up to assist people in need to make our quiet corner a better place to live. It is always a pleasure working with the Day Kimball team and we look forward to many more years of working together."
"SPIROL remains a socially responsible organization, focused on giving back to our community,” said Jeff Koehl, Chief Executive Officer, SPIROL International. “We are proud to continue our partnership with the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of DKH, and that partnership would not be possible without the continued support of our incredible SPIROL team members and their personal dedication to their community."
The SPIROL team has once again pledged to support the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of DKH for the company’s 2021 fiscal year.
Originally founded by a local family in honor of a loved one lost too soon to breast cancer, today the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of DKH provides financial assistance to more than 200 neighbors in need each year. Assistance is used to help pay for cancer-related screening and treatment services to individuals living in Northeast Connecticut who otherwise may not have the financial resources to access needed medical care. Through charitable contributions of local businesses, community members, and various philanthropic events, more than $1.3 million has been raised for the Fund since its inception in 1989.
The Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of DKH depends on the support and philanthropy of businesses like SPIROL and people in the community it serves. For more information about the Fund visit daykimball.org/nect-cancer-fund or contact the DKH Development office at (860) 928-7141.
